we live above an asian grocery and i scored a bag of shiro miso at a good price. i made miso soup a couple of times, because i do like miso soup....what the heck do i do with the rest of it? we're lacto-ovo vegetarian. and how long will it keep in the fridge? ther's no "sell by" date, at least not one i can find in english.

i'm looking for recipes that might use the miso with tempeh or tofu, since i have a lot of that.

what do i do with miso powder? i've got some of that, too.

blessings,

that stuff is so salty I think it lasts forever, lol. It makes a good base for marinade. I haven't bought any for ages so no more ideas.

I've made Tahini Miso Spread from John Robbins' May All Be Fed:

3/4 cup raw tahini
1/4 cup white miso (i've used whatever i had on hand)
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
3 tablespoons hot water
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano

Blend 'em all together. Will keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

He says also that miso keeps 'for several months' in the fridge. This dip/spread is great on pitas or toasted bagels or as a veggie dip. Nice score on the miso, by the way! I've never managed to finish a container :
Peace and miso,

meant to say also there are a few other recipes in his book for miso - a mushroom sauce and a vegetable soup. I love this book!
Peace,

yum yum susan

I love love miso

tofu steaks : mix miso with some water, a dash of chili, a dash of balsamic vinegar and sesame oil and coat slabs of tofu - let it marinate for a while before sizzling on hot griddle

Hello!
It is fermented so it should last forever I have hitch-hiked cross country with a bag of it in my backpack-I would just put fresh garlic & hot water together with it or spread it on bagles mmmmm. Those were the days! Try using it in soup bases-put it in just at the end . ( You aren't supposed to boil it) Take care,
Tamara
