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.
