  1. In a small bowl whisk all ingredients together until smooth. Add water if you prefer a thinner sauce. A slightly looser sauce is often better to spoon over leafy greens. It’s important to add the water in slowly. To loosen the sauce, beat in a little cold water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until the sauce is how you like it.

Chef Tips

Miso is fermented soybean paste. It comes in several different colors, white (which is actually yellow), red, and brown. As a rule of thumb, the darker the color, the stronger the taste. You can buy miso at most health food stores and specialty markets, and in Asian supermarkets. Once opened, it will keep indefinitely in the fridge, but will harden over time.
