What is Miso and what to do with it
Make your life better with miso.

If you don’t know miso, you should! It is a miracle paste that can enhance so many foods. From sweet to sour to baking, it can give a dish that extra push to magic.

What is miso? Simply, miso is a fermented paste of koji (Aspergillus oryzae) which breaks down the structure of rice, soybeans or barley, or a combination of them. This creates amino acids, fatty acids and simple sugars.

This potion is a way to add punch to a meatless broth or make a creamy salad dressing swoon!

Here are some really easy ways to try miso.

1) Combine miso and toasted sesame oil and spread it on the next fish you broil or grill.

2) Combine jam, vinegar and miso with sage, rosemary, and thyme and brush over a roast before cooking.

3) Mix miso and butter, 1 to 1, then heat to melt to a liquid state and then drizzle over cooked broccoli, Brussel sprouts, or green beans.

4) Add a quarter cup of miso to a soup and enhance the whole pot.

5) Make mustard miso by taking hot Chinese dry mustard (2 tsp. mustard - 3 tsp. water) as you normally would, add mirin (2 tbsp.), white miso (1/3 cup), purple sweet potato vinegar (3 tbsp.) and jaggery ( 1 - 1/2 tbsp.). Think of it as mustard for your next sandwich or to dip one of Scotty’s pretzels.

6) Make mayonnaise better - 1/2 cup mayo with 1 tsp. miso paste and a little vinegar.

7) Make a brown sugar - mix 2 tbsp. red miso with 1/2 cup Murakami Syouten Crushed Brown Sugar from Hateruma Island. Use as you would brown sugar in baking.

So many options and creative ideas for using miso. Just a little will make a big difference in your life.
