Japanese Miso

Most people know miso as the main ingredient of the Japanese miso soup, but that's very unfortunate because there are so many more ways that miso can be used! Not only does it give a rich taste to your foods but since it is a fermented food it is great for your digestive system. It's also packed with nutrients and has many proven cancer-fighting properties! So if you want to go beyond the miso soup, how about trying this super simple Japanese dressing that goes well with a variety of dishes, not just salads.

Miso Lemon Dressing

This style of miso dressing is popular in Japan and can be made at home in no time. You just need the following ingredients:

> Miso paste 1 Tbsp
> Freshly pressed lemon juice > 1 Tbsp
> Sugar 2 Tbsp
> Water

Mix them together and you're done! This dressing has no oil so it tastes quite light. The lemon and miso taste blend surprisingly well together. Lighter miso pastes are usually used for dressings but try out different kinds for a different taste. Darker ones usually have a stronger, slightly bitter flavor.

What To Use It On?

You can use it as a dressing for soft tofu. Adding leaks and grated ginger is a great idea too.
It goes really well with noodles as well. There is a popular dish in Japan called hiyashichuka in which all kinds of thinly sliced veggies, meat, and omelet are placed on noodles. It goes great with that! This is a popular summer dish. Check out the link below to find out how to make it.
Obviously, it's a great salad dressing too. This type of salad dressing goes particularly well with pork if you want to add that to your salad. Also, try it with a simple cabbage salad, finely cut.


Try it out with all kinds of other dishes! You'll be surprised by the versatility of miso. If you'd like to make other Japanese style salad dressing, please check out the link below.
