Miso has long been coveted by the Japanese for its nutritional benefits. This smooth paste is made by fermenting soya beans or other grains with Koji, which is the culture created from rice and/or soya that have been inoculated with the Aspergillus oryzae fermentation culture.
Miso is a good source of protein as well as being a versatile flavouring.
We stock a variety of different strengths of miso. Lighter coloured miso tends to have a softer flavour, whereas darker misos are saltier.
Just dilute a few teaspoons with water to make a stock or broth. Alternatively mix the miso paste directly with vinegar and other seasonings to create tasty dressings.
There are so many different ways that you can use this umami flavoured ingredient. Here are just a few suggestions!
Miso is a great vegetarian alternative to savoury flavours such as anchovies and chicken stock. Light miso is sweeter than dark miso, and it makes a great addition to coleslaw - as shown in this recipe!
