*KUZU: To make it easier to measure the Emperor’s Kitchen Organic Kuzu, I shake the jar a little to break up the large clumps. You can also use the back of a spoon or a suribachi to break up the kuzu. Add just enough cool water to dissolve into a thick, yet pourable paste.
MISO: To dissolve miso, place in a small bowl adding enough warm water to create a smooth texture.
You can substitute Kuzu with organic corn starch or arrowroot powder.
