For the sauce:

1/2 cup walnut meats, oven toasted

1 tablespoon red miso (Japanese fermented rice and soybean paste)

1 tablespoon Mirin, or substitute cocktail sherry

2 teaspoons soy sauce

3 tablespoons dashi (Japanese soup stock), or substitute chicken broth


Directions:  Put the walnuts, miso, Mirin and soy sauce into the bowl of a food processor or blender and blend until mostly smooth.  Add the dashi and blend until well mixed in.  Remove to a mixing bowl and set aside until needed.


To finish the dish:

10 ounces cleaned broccoli buds, about 4 heaping cups


Directions:  Bring a generous amount of water to a boil.  Add the broccoli and cook over high heat just until the water comes back to the boil.  Drain it well then toss with the sauce and serve hot, garnishing with a few more walnuts if desired.
