Miso dressing/sauce – versatile & delicious!

This recipe can be used in different ways – as both a sauce and as a dressing. I highly recommend both options!

  • Sauce – any kind of pasta/stir fry, etc. kind of meal that needs a little sauce – over rice, quinoa, pasta, etc.
  • Dressing – Salad, greens, etc.
Miso spectacular!

Ingredients – for sauce

  • 1 1/3 tbsp Organic Red Miso Paste (I use Feeding Change)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 1/4 tbsp tahini
  • 2 1/4 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/8 cup raw agave nectar
  • cayenne to taste
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 2 1/4 tsp tamari soy sauce (or bragg’s liquid aminos or coconut aminos)
  • Sea salt + black pepper to taste
  • 1/3 frozen lemon, grated (or juice of 1/2 a lemon)

Ingredients – for dressing

  • cayenne to taste
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 2 tsp tamari soy sauce (or bragg’s liquid aminos or coconut aminos)
  • 1 tsp-1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (depending on how much you like the taste and how much more liquid-y you want the dressing)

I grated purple carrot, chopped baby tomatoes (fresh from my garden!) and some “Super Greens” by organic girl (baby red chard, baby tat soi, baby spinach, baby green swiss chard, baby arugula) (It was a lazy night!) – I also had a veggie burger topped with daiya + arugula and some hummus and tortilla chips for dinner that night. 😛
Instructions – for sauce + dressing

  1. Always chop the garlic first to allow the allicin time to build up.
  2. Depending on what you’re doing – prep other ingredients of the meal (pasta, veg, etc.) – prepare this sauce while the other stuff is on the go.
  3. Add all ingredients for sauce/dressing to small bowl and whisk until fully blended.
  4. How you go from here is up to you – you can pour over and serve, pour and mix to coat…or whatever your heart desires.
