Carb-Wise: Baked Miso-Soy Tilapia

over Quinoa-Butternut Squash ‘Rice’ with String Beans

Cooking time

25 minutes




530 /serving

When Korean-inspired flavours come a’ calling, you’ll want to answer. Full-bodied white miso paste is the starting point for a stellar glaze, supported by sweet soy and rice vinegar. Brush it over fillets of flaky tilapia before they go into the oven, and drizzle it over baked string beans at serving time. For a carb-conscious side, let’s skip regular rice in favour of butternut squash grains sautéed with garlic and worked into a pot of fluffy quinoa.

  • 2 Tilapia fillets
  • 200g Butternut squash ‘rice’ (chopped butternut squash)

Cook the quinoa
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Using a strainer, rinse the quinoa. In a medium pot, combine the quinoa, 1 cup water (double for 4 portions) and a pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 16 to 18 min., until tender. Fluff and keep warm.

Sauté the squash rice
Meanwhile, grate the garlic. In a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the squash rice and sauté, 2 to 4 min., until beginning to soften. Add ½ the garlic and sauté, 1 min., until the squash rice has softened and the garlic is fragrant; season with ½ the spices.
