Miso with miso-pumkin and za'atar

Tempeh Miso Kürbis Karotten-Pickle mit einer Sauce aus schwarzem Knoblauch und Joghurt

I love miso. It is so versatile. I basically put it on everything. Before summer I started a flaxseed miso and I am putting it on all autumn vegetables. It will turn mushy, soft pumpkin into a slightly crisp, brownish vegetable with an awesome complex flavour.

for 2 person


1/2 muscat pumpkin cut into dices

1 teaspoon of flaxseed miso

5 tablespoons of olive oil


Preheat the oven to 200 degree celsius.

Mix the miso with the oil until you have a emulsion. Rub the pumpkin with salt and the emulsion. Distribute the pumpkin evenly on a tray but make sure the pumpkin dices are well spread out. Bake for 15 minutes and give it a final touch of 5 minutes with the grill function turned on.

The pumpkin should have a nice brown colour. Pick the pumpkin with a fork, if it is soft - it is done.


2 carrots

5 tablespoons of red wine vinegar


With a peeler scrap of carrot straps. Heat the vinegar, add salt and pour it over the carrot straps. Set aside.


50g (1/4 cup) of basmati rice

100g (1/2 cup) water

Wash the rice and bring water and rice to a boil. Then turn of the stove and leave the pot on the hot plate. Leave the lid on, it will cook basically by itself.

Joghurt with black garlic dressing

150 g (1/2 cup) greek yoghurt

3-4 cloves of black garlic

1 tablespoon of lemon juice

3 tablespoons of olive oil

1/2 teaspoon of salt

Mix all ingredients together in a blender, but add the oil at the end. This will give the creme a better structure. Salt & pepper - maybe more lemon juice if you like.

Chickpea Tempeh

Pan-fry 4 slices of tempeh using vegetable oil. At the end use some soy sauce to deglace. Set aside.


1 tablespoon dried thyme

1 tablespoon sumach

1 tablesppon of roasted sesame

1/2 tablespoon of salt flakes

mix and fill it in a glass jar.


At the bottom of a bowl put the rice. Layer pumpkin, carrots and tempeh and drizzle some sauce between the layers. Finally sprinkle some za'atar on top of the dish & ENJOY!
