Oven Fries with Miso Mayonnaise #KitchenMatrixCookingProject


Another week, another recipe for the Kitchen Matrix Project, named after Mark Bittman's Kitchen Matrix cookbook. You can read about it: here. This month, I picked the recipes for the month am I'm very excited about the dishes and the bloggers who are joining me. And I am thrilled with how simple these recipes are to make. 

This week, I picked 'Miso+ 4 Ways' for the group. If you don't have the cookbook, Bittman's miso recipes are available online at the New York Times: here.

I had a tough time deciding because I was intrigued by the Miso Spice, Miso Butter, and - especially - the Miso Butterscotch! But I ran out of time this weekend, so those will be for another day. Stay tuned.

More Miso


Ingredients
slight adapted from Bittman because it was just "to mayo-y" according to my trio

Miso Mayo
  • 1/2 C mayonnaise
  • 1 T miso
  • 1 t soy sauce
  • 1/2 t sesame oil
Oven Fries
  • 4 to 5 organic potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1 T flour
  • olive oil
  • freshly ground salt
Procedure

Miso Mayo
Whisk everything together in a small mixing bowl until well-combined. Set aside.

Oven Fries
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Cut the potatoes into thick wedges, approximately 6 to 8 wedges per potato. Place the potatoes in a large mixing bowl. Add in the flour and shake the bowl to coat potatoes as evenly as possible. Turn the potatoes out onto the baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Roast for 30 minutes until crisped on one side. Turn the potatoes over and return them to the oven for an additional 5 minutes.


Serve hot with miso mayo.

  1. Well, I'm glad you chose the themes you did this month because I have never worked with miso before but I must admit I was not overly impressed. I could only find red miso so perhaps that is why.
