12 ways with miso

For many of us, our experience of miso paste is limited to the miso soup we get at a Japanese restaurant. But miso is so much more than just a soup. It can glaze steamed greens perfectly, and even make your favourite brownies taste all that much better. It’s a paste that has SO much more to give.

For your inspiration, I’ve rounded up 12 of my favourite ways to use miso…

1. Sticky miso and tahini aubergine wedges

This aubergine recipe is the ultimate dish to showcase miso. Serve it as a side or indulge in a whole plate, as a vegetarian main.


2.  Natasha Corrett’s grilled aubergine miso salad 

We just couldn’t resist adding another miso and aubergine combination… Especially one that’s rich in umami flavour and can be on the table in 20 minutes.


3. Spicy miso-charred aubergine with rib steak 

Take your piece of steak to whole new level by serving it with our velvety, miso-charred aubergine dip.
