.: Ingredient Info  :.
1- Miso

Made from fermented soybeans, miso is a thick paste-like substance. Miso is brownish in color and tastes extremely salty and tangy on its own. While the most common use of miso is in Japanese-style miso soup recipes, miso also adds a unique burst of flavor to salad dressings, sauces and marinades, baked tofu, or vegetable dishes.
