Miso Tahini Dressing

A sweet-salty vinaigrette to pour over salad. I love this massaged on kale, topped with some crunchy sunflowers seeds or peanuts. Add in some cubed avocado, any veggies and roasted sweet potatoes and it’s super delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup organic white miso
  • 3 tbs of raw honey or maple syrup (to taste)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 teaspoon of soy sauce or tamarin (I would even put less, since miso is salty already — to taste)
  • 1 tbs fresh grated ginger (or more! – once again, to taste)
  • 1/2 cup of water

Instructions

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Taste and rectify to taste.

Miso Soup

A simple, quick miso soup — under 10 minutes! Serves 2-3 people.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 tablespoons of organic white miso paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried seaweed (wakame)
  • 1 block of tofu (diced in 0.5cm cubes)

Method:

  1. Bring water to simmer and add wakame. If you’ve never used wakame before, it may seem like not much but they will absorb water and expand a lot. Simmer for 5-6 minutes.
  2. Lower heat to low and add miso paste and diced tofu cubes. Stir until miso is fully dissolved.
