Miso is the key to this simple sweet-and-salty side dish! Combined with butter, miso becomes an ultra-rich and savory sauce that makes any (fresh or frozen) vegetable shine. We like to make a big batch and store leftovers in the Anytime Freezer Trays. Simply pop out a portion and stir into soups, stir-fries, or a bowl of hot ramen noodles.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.
