Miso Mayonnaise

Print Friendly and PDF
Here's a super easy, flavorful dip for fresh cut or steamed veggies. If you love miso, you will certainly like this recipe. It only has three ingredients so stirs up quickly.  In addition to dipping vegetables in it, you can smear it on a salmon fillet or salmon steak and bake it at 400 degrees for 15-20 min.  It's taste is uniquely Asian and pure pleasure.

1/2 cup mayonnaise (Best Foods)
1 T miso (I used the red miso)
1 tsp sesame oil

Mix it altogether in a small bowl.  Refrigerate until serving time.  Excellent!

James' Tofu Sauce

Here's a simple, delicate sauce to put on top of cold tofu that James Yuasa made for us during our recent Hawaiian vacation.  If you add a little sesame oil (1/2 tsp),  it becomes a finishing sauce for boiled or steamed chicken.  Feel free to alter the amount of the ingredients to your liking.  Be sure to use the light soy sauce or else it will taste too strong.  So good!

1/4 cup light soy sauce
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
2 T finely chopped fresh ginger, to taste

Whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl.  Refrigerate until serving time.  This can be made one day in advance.  Serve with cold tofu that has been cut into cubes.
