Description Edit

The combination of miso and rich peanut butter creates an exciting dressing and dipping sauce that can be prepared in a flash. Miso lovers also know it as a tangy treat while it is great with salads or other appetizers.

Ingredients Edit

  • 1 large clove garlic, peeled
  • 2-inch chunk fresh ginger, trimmed and cut into eighths
  • ⅓ to ½ cup hot water [1]
  • ½ cup unsalted peanut butter, regular or light/reduced-fat/sugar-free only
  • 2 tablespoons sweet white miso
  • 1 tablespoon shoyu
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • chili oil or ground cayenne pepper, to taste, optional

Directions Edit

  1. Finely chop the garlic and ginger (this should be done with a food processor for best results).
  2. If using a food processor, scrape down the work bowl, and add ⅓ cup of water, the peanut butter, miso, and shoyu. (otherwise combine ingredients in a bowl) and blend until smooth. (if you do this by hand, the result will not be smooth, but no less tasty).
  3. Add the lime juice and a dash of chili oil (optional), and pulse a few times to distribute.
  4. Thin with additional water, if you wish.
  5. Use immediately or refrigerate for up to 5 days.
  6. Shake well before each use and thin with extra lime juice or water if the mixture thickens on standing.

Notes Edit

  1. Using ⅓ cup water will result in a thickish dipping sauce, and ½ cup of water will make a more dressing-like consistency.
