How to Make This Recipe
Make the miso butter by mashing mellow miso with vegan butter until they are fully incorporated. It's that simple. The miso butter is added to the sauce towards the end of the recipe to avoid overcooking the miso.
Cherry tomatoes are ideal for this recipe as they are slightly sweet, but grape and Campari tomatoes also work well. The tomatoes are cooked down in the garlicky vegan butter until they start to burst and release their juices.
Sweet Corn Kernels
Mix in the corn, and miso butter and stir to combine. The starch from the corn kernels thickens the sauce so it easily coats the pasta.
I used Paccheri pasta, but most types of pasta will work. Add the desired amount of cooked pasta to the skillet and heat until warmed through. Toss the pasta in the sauce until fully coated.
Ingredients & Nutrition
Miso is a fermented paste made from inoculating soybeans with a mold called koji, which is cultivated from rice, barley, or soybeans. It's rich in umami, salty, and earthy in flavor. Use it to make salad dressings, glazes, sauces, dips, as well as in stews, and soups. The culinary uses of mellow miso are almost endless. It's very versatile and lasts for quite some time in the refrigerator.
Cherry tomatoes are sweeter than large tomatoes. Burst cherry tomatoes add a delicate balance of sweet and tart to sauces, making them the perfect sauce ingredient. They're a versatile ingredient to have in your kitchen arsenal. Plus, they're easy to cook and require no chopping.
Tomatoes are packed with vitamin C and a good source of lycopene. Lycopene helps fight free radicals that cause disease. They may also limit UV damage from sun exposure and promote better heart health.
Grape tomatoes are smaller and more oblong in shape. They are not as sweet as cherry tomatoes, and are less watery. Grape tomatoes are becoming increasingly popular as they are hardier and less fragile to transport. Both can be used interchangeably in most recipes.
