Miso paste is known for its savory, umami flavor and is the secret ingredient in many vegan dishes. This year, as we recognize No Dairy February, we want to encourage you to test out some plant-based dairy alternatives that utilize miso to round out the flavors of inventive dishes.
What is No Dairy February?
No Dairy February is a challenge of sorts for non-vegans to explore 28 days of dairy alternatives, many of which contain miso to add in that savory element that dairy, such as cheese, would normally provide. It’s an opportunity to explore new flavors, textures and recipes, and perhaps discover a new favorite dish!
We’re big fans of a versatile healthy diet, and encourage those interested in exploring dairy substitutes to use this month for inspiration.
How Can I Use Miso?
Miso is an excellent ingredient in non-dairy cheeses and sauces. It’s distinct umami flavor adds depth to dairy alternatives. If you’re afraid of letting go of your favorite comfort foods for No Dairy February, don’t worry! Recipes like this vegan mac and cheese can fill that void.
