  1. Place sesame seeds in a skillet over medium heat. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until lightly toasted.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the chicken broth, miso paste, soy sauce, rice vinegar, lime juice, chile sauce, brown sugar, green onions, and cilantro. Toss zucchini in the dressing to coat just before serving, and top with toasted sesame seeds, nori, and almonds.

LOVED this! I substituted vegetable broth for chicken and pure maple syrup for brown sugar; otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly, and it was delicious. You could probably omit the broth (which I think is used more to thin the miso than for flavoring), because once the dressing sits on the zucchini, it thins quite a bit. This is great with just the sauce and the zucchini, but the almonds and nori complete it perfectly.



I skipped the sesame seeds and nori for ease, and this was still a winner. It was slightly salty for my tastes (a function of the miso, as far as I can tell) but otherwise great. Also, I mixed all the dressing ingredients except the broth together, then eyeballed the amount of broth to get the desired consistency (since other reviewers had warned 1/4c was too much). Everyone loved it!



Delicious! I get asked to make this recipe for parties. The hardest part is prepping the zucchini (I julienne it) and figuring out what to do with the rest of the leftover miso paste (I can only find 16oz jars of the stuff). I use Dashi flavored miso and omit the sessame (I love the seeds but I never have them at home) and often time I forget to put in the nori. If you are apprehensive about eating zucchini raw - DON'T BE - it's awesome.
