RECIPE of the MONTH
Sesame Miso Cucumber Salad
This Sesame Miso Cucumber Salad is a delightful summer side dish. You’ll love the tasty dressing made from our Miso Master Organic Mellow White. There’s also a touch of our tasty Emperor’s Kitchen Toasted Sesame Oil that you will love. Sprinkle white or black sesame seeds on top because they add a nice pop of flavor and they’re nutrient rich. So get some fresh cucumbers from your garden (or farmer’s market!), prepare this salad and enjoy!
Miso Master Organic Mellow White Miso
Miso Master Organic Mellow White Miso is one of our Short-Term miso varieties. These misos have their own unique position in the miso universe; in many ways this position is the mirror opposite of the Long-Term Aged Miso. Short-Term Aged or Mellow Misos have more rice koji (grain inoculated with aspergillus spores) than soybeans in their ingredient mix because they are designed to ferment quickly as the aspergillus mold moves quickly through the abundant starches in rice transforming them into simple sugars. Short-Term miso also have much less salt in their ingredient mix, thereby retarding the fermentation process much less than in the Long-Term Aged Miso.
