About the Recipe

I suppose miso isn't the first ingredient that comes to mind when you think about making a sauce. I thought up this combination when I was asked by a friend for a good Asian style sauce to dress tofu kebabs. Now, this is my "go to" dressing for tofu and I find it also works very well with white fish, chicken and salads. The tahini/miso combo can be a little cloying but if you find it has thickened too much after standing, you can simply loosed it up with a little water. This sauce is both protein and flavour rich - there's nothing better to make tofu or a salad into a main dish!


2 tbsp miso

1 tbsp tahini

2 tbsp japanese cooking sake

1 tbsp sugar

3 tbsp water


combine the miso, tahini, sake, sugar and water in a pan

cook and stir on a medium heat for approx. 4 mins

once the sauce starts bubbling, it is ready - just make sure the alcohol in the sake has evaporated
