Sooo, I’m currently obsessed with miso butter. I put it on vegetables, I dream about it on steak or seafood and I wonder what else I can put it on. Can’t. Stop. Thinking. About. It.
Miso is one of those “weird” ingredients that might be a little scary, but I promise, it is an ingredient worth having around. Miso is typically soy beans that have been fermented, but there are other versions out there, like chickpea or brown rice. The flavor is salty and often described as umami. It gives a deep, rich flavor to vegetables, fish, meat, soup…pretty much anything.
Combining the miso with butter is ridiculously delicious. This is a twist on my Miso Butter Green Beans and I’m so glad I had some kale in the fridge when the miso-craving struck.
Try it, you won’t be disappointed. And if you don’t have any miso? Get yourself to the store. Please don’t make me obsess on my own!
