Miso-Buttered Succotash

The miso paste used in this super simple dish gives depth and a hint of savoriness to canned or fresh vegetables. To brighten the flavor profile even more, you could add a splash of your favorite white wine. —William Milton III, Clemson, South Carolina

Test Kitchen tips
  • White miso paste has a subtle, salty flavor. You can increase the amount of miso in this recipe for more flavor.
  • Leftover miso paste is especially delicious in soups!
  • Try mixing a bit of leftover miso paste into cold spreads—mix it with mayonnaise, cream cheese or sour cream, for example—to boost flavor. It can give salad dressings and marinades a lift, too.

      Despite doubling the miso, I found this boring. It was a nice combination of buttered vegetables. I don't need a recipe for that.

      This vegetable dish is delicious and very appealing to the eye with the mix of colors! This is the first time I used white miso paste. The description of this recipe is right on...the succotash gets an additional layer of umami flavor with the miso. I used thawed frozen corn instead of the canned corn. After tasting, I decided to add a touch more miso as suggested in the notes. Love the "crunch" the raw scallions add to the dish and there is a nice "zip" from the coarsely ground pepper. It's a keeper folks.
