Well, worry no more; if that ingredient is spiral miso, we are here to tell you several ways you can use that jar in. Let’s find out different ways in which you can use that bottle of jar of spiral miso kept in the cabinet.
- Salad Dressings
If you are someone who loves to try different types of salads with new salad dressings, spiral miso is that one ingredient which you should use right now. Miso adds a lovely savory taste to vinaigrette. If you are planning to make salad for two, whisk together a table spoon of wine vinegar and a few spoons of extra virgin oil and a tea spoon of spiral miso paste to enhance the flavor even more.
- Main Course Soup
When it comes to talking about miso, miso soup is something that often comes to in one’s mind. The traditional form of a miso soup is usually a light broth with some cubes of tofu and seaweed.
- As an Alternate to Soy Sauce or Salt in Seasoning
If you are out of salt or soy sauce or want to go for a different option besides these two in a seasoning, the best option to use is spiral miso which will give you even more flavor than a salt or soy sauce would in your dish.
- Used in a Sauce to be served with Fish or Pan Fried Meat
The best way to use spiral miso in a pan fried fish or meat is to cook the meat or fish in a little oil. Remove the pan from stove and place your protein (fish or meat) on a plate to rest. Mix a table spoon of hot water, white vinegar and two table spoons of spiral miso with the pan juice and top it over your meat/fish to be served.
- In stir fry’s
Miso is often commonly used in stir fry’s as it is super tasty. A bit of a delicate flavor that is incorporated by using miso over your stir fry item is always a hit. The best way to cook is to remove the stir fry item from stove before you add the secret ingredient i.e. the spiral miso.
