Marvelous Miso

Miso has a wonderful sweet/salty flavor that can be used in a wide variety of recipes. Its colour can vary from light yellow - good to use in a sweet miso soup during warm weather, to a deep dark brown with earthy tones and hearty flavor - which can be cooked with cubed root vegetables, wakame seaweed and dark leafy greens during the colder months. When cooking with miso use just enough to enhance flavor and avoid overpowering the dish with a strong salty taste.
