Delicious And Simple Miso Glaze

An absolute staple of mine is miso glaze. It is super simple to make! It is a versatile way to add a unique depth of flavour to your dishes. No matter if tofu or veggies, it gives that umami flavour to bring the dish to the next level. Miso is a traditional Japanese ingredient made from fermented soybeans. It just works perfectly. 

Ingredients for making a Miso Glaze: 

Miso glaze ingredients in small glass bowls
  • Miso paste
  • Rice wine vinegar
  • Cane sugar
  • Sriracha
  • Sesame oil
  • Neutral cooking oil

To make a delicious miso glaze, you’ll need a few simple ingredients. Firstly, it’s all about the miso paste! You should be able to find some in well-sorted grocery stores or Asian markets. Choose a variety that suits your taste preferences. White miso has a milder flavour, and red miso has a bolder punch. You can also combine the two, or buy a mix. I went with red miso paste for a deep taste today! 

To balance this strong flavour, I am using rice wine vinegar for some tang, cane sugar for sweetness, Sriracha for a spicy kick, and sesame oil for flavour. Lastly, I add some neutral vegetable oil. I’d recommend using a heat-resistant oil like peanut oil. 

Miso Glaze Recipe: 

All ingredients combined in a beautiful bowl

Making the miso glaze is super simple: Mix all the ingredients until well combined. That’s all there is to it. It might take a bit of patience to get the miso paste well incorporated. Next, you can start adding some hot water. Start adding the water slowly, and whisk it in until the consistency of the sauce fits your preference. 

Now, it’s time to get creative with miso glazing! This glaze works wonders on tofu, vegetables, or other proteins like tempeh or Seitan.
