This dish owes its incredible depth of flavor to the sauce, which we’re using both to roast the vegetables and to finish the dish. It’s made with soy sauce, sesame oil, mirin and sweet white miso paste. In the oven, the natural sugars of the mirin and miso paste caramelize, enhancing the natural sweetness of the carrots. The complex, savory-sweet sauce also works its magic on the Tokyo turnips, a mild and juicy variety we’ve sourced specially for this recipe.
