Miso means “fermented beans” and it is the ultimate “secret” ingredient for countless, diverse dishes. The paste is made of fermented soybeans and is a principal element in Asian cooking. However, Miso paste is incredibly multipurpose, its unique flavour gives all sorts of recipes a lovely depth and taste. Its uses are wide ranging, from adding salty savory-ness, to balancing sweetness or to simply drizzle over a salad to give it that necessary oomph. Miso goes well with soups, broths, aubergines, mushroom, tofu, and many more ingredients.
It shouldn’t be difficult to find miso paste in most places in London, but you may struggle to find one that has the best taste and is the most authentic. We recommend ordering it from MamaLan London, their Sesame Miso has deeply layered flavour, its ultra-savoury, earthy and salty.
