MISO CARBONARA

PREP TIME

5 minutes

COOK TIME

15 minutes

SERVES

4

Ingredients

3 eggs, plus 2 egg yolks

2 tbsp miso paste

100g (3.5 oz) finely grated parmesan cheese, plus extra to serve

½ tsp ground black pepper

400g (14 oz) spaghetti

200g (7 oz) thick cut bacon or pancetta, sliced into batons

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (optional)

Furikake* to serve

Steps

Step 1

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg yolks, miso paste, parmesan and pepper.

Step 2

Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Cook the pasta for its recommended cooking time.

Step 3

While the pasta cooks, heat the bacon in a large frying pan over high heat. You want the bacon to colour as well as render some fat. If there isn’t a sheen of fat on the bottom of your pan after 3-4 minutes, then add olive oil. Turn the heat off but let the pan sit on the warm stovetop.

Step 4

Reserve a cup of pasta cooking water. Then drain the pasta and add it straight into the warm pan. Add the egg mixture and toss with the pasta. Keep tossing the pasta in the egg mixture until it thickens (turn the heat on low under the pan if necessary). If the sauce becomes too thick you can loosen it with some of the pasta cooking water. Be careful not to scramble the eggs!

Step 5

When the sauce is thick, divide among serving plates. Grate over extra parmesan cheese and scatter over the furikake.

Notes:

– Furikake is a seasoning mix traditionally sprinkled over rice. You can find it at most Asian or Japanese grocery stores.
