Tahini Miso Sauce
I've been eating more and more fermented foods lately and miso paste was the next thing I needed to try. Miso is a fairly well known fermented soy product, however, I'd never cooked with it myself. I watched an informative nutritionfacts.org video on the health properties of miso soup (link below) and then went out to buy some. I wasn't sure what to do with it. I guess I should have made the miso soup but I figured I could probably try to mix it with tahini and try that out first. I googled miso tahini and sure enough there was a delicious recipe on the Whole Foods Market website. I wasn't terribly excited about their addition of orange rind and dried parsley so I created my own version of their recipe. This sauce tasted GREAT poured over some steamed veggies and brown rice!
