This Carrot Ginger Miso Sauce is amazing!!!! It’s similar to what is served in most sushi restaurants that I’ve eaten at in the US on a green salad. It’s super delicious and has so much umami flavor thanks to the miso.
Finding Miso for Carrot Ginger Miso Sauce
Miso is soy bean paste and you can find it in most Asian markets. You can mix it into a lot of different foods to add that umami flavor. I am still experimenting with how to use it but will definitely share all my discoveries as I come across them. You want to choose the “white” miso. Now I realize that my miso doesn’t look very white but I SWEAR the package says white miso. But apparently the white miso variety is the mildest you can find and in this recipe, you don’t want the miso to overpower the flavors.
This Carrot Ginger MIso Sauce is perfect to make and use throughout the week on salads or bowls!!! It’s absolutely perfect in this recipe for Asian Salad Bowls!!
You can even drizzle it on your favorite steamed vegetable such as broccoli, cauliflower or anything else you fancy. The sauce goes together really quickly since it’s made in a food processor or blender. I also feel like it’d work as a good dip for veggies as well. And will keep in the refrigerator for about a week. Since it has carrots in it, you likely don’t want to keep it longer than that.
