Step 1: Preparing Your Mise en Place

• 1/2 cup light miso
• 1/4 cup cane sugar
• 2 tbsp sesame oil
• 1 cup HOT water
• 1 tbsp Garlic Confit
• 1/4 cup mirin
• 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar


To make the sauce, first gather and prepare your mise en place, including the Garlic Confit.

Next, blend together the miso paste, cane sugar, Garlic Confit, HOT water, mirin, rice wine vinegar—blending until smooth. Lastly, slowly drizzle in the sesame oil.

Note: Hot water is used as it helps the cane sugar melt. Alternatively, the whole sauce, minus the sesame oil, can be heated first on the stovetop and then blended.

Once done, set aside until ready to use. This versatile sauce can be used hot, warm or cold, either as a sauce or as a dressing. Any leftover sauce will keep for several days in the refrigerator.

    Good to know you like this one, Mirza! This sauce is a favorite in Japan and used to dress cooked spinach, among other foods.
