I’ve tried a lot of foods and flavors, but miso is new to me.
What is miso? Basically, it is a Japanese seasoning made from fermented beans or grains. The taste is unique and salty, and I think it takes a little getting used to, but I’m totally hooked. Although I’m not vegan, I love finding sauces and flavors that can finish off a dish without adding cheese or a creamy, dairy based dressing.
For this dressing, I followed the directions on the miso container (I used Chickpea Miso instead of soy):
3 T miso paste + 3 T tahini + juice of a lemon + a little less than 1 C water
Whisk, heat, thicken, enjoy!
We’ve been eating a couscous/veggie/bean salad for lunches this week, and this miso dressing is a great flavor addition!
