Author Notes: This egg salad is packed with umami-rich miso, creamy tahini, and flaky, salty Korean seaweed instead of the usual mustard and mayo.AT BURNING DEGREES

Serves: 6

  • 10 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
  • a few sheets of toasted seaweed (nori or kim), chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons white miso
  • 2 lemons, juice only
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed and smashed to a paste
  • splashes grade B maple syrup
  • splashes tamari
  • water, for thinning as needed
  1. Combine the eggs, seaweed, celery, and shallot in a bowl.
  2. Make the dressing by whisking the tahini, miso, lemon juice, garlic paste in a small bowl, adding maple syrup or honey and tamari to taste.
  3. Thin the dressing by adding cold water in splashes, stirring constantly, until you have the consistency of a creamy salad dressing. Adjust to taste. You’re looking for a pretty intense hit of flavor when the dressing is tasted alone, with a burst of miso saltiness and strong lemon-y zing. It’ll balance out once you get it into the salad.
  4. Fold the dressing into the egg salad and mix vigorously, smashing with the back of a fork or spoon until the yolks are no longer crumbly but have mixed into the sauce to form a thick paste.
  5. Eat alone or serve on toast.
