Serves 6 (serving size: about 3 zucchini pieces, 2 eggplant pieces, 2 bell pepper pieces, and 1 onion slice)

The vegetable amounts suggested below are just a guideline; double or triple for a crowd. The important thing to remember is the proportion in the marinade: 1 to 2 tablespoons miso and 1 tablespoon water to about 3 tablespoons olive oil works well.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to high heat.

Step 2

Combine miso and 1 tablespoon water. Gradually add oil, stirring with a whisk. Place zucchini, eggplant, and bell peppers on a jelly-roll pan. Add 5 tablespoons miso mixture; toss to coat. Brush onion with remaining miso mixture.

Step 3

Place vegetables on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill zucchini, eggplant, and bell pepper 4 minutes on each side or until tender. Grill onion 6 minutes on each side or until tender. Sprinkle with mint. Serve with lime wedges.

I didn't bother with the mint and the lime at the end.  On my Traeger grill in the frigid temps of winter, grill time was 10 minutes each side.  Perfect.

Nice for the summer

Easy meal to make, and nice and light for the summer. I did use some soy sauce as a condiment. The mint and miso really complimented each other, much to my surprise. Will definitely make it again.

This is a great way to use summer vegetables. I couldn't find miso paste at my grocery store, but I did find a Minute Miso. So, when I made the miso mixture, I added only the oil, not the water, because the Minute Miso already included the water.
