Notes

If you are unfamiliar with Miso other than in soup form in Japanese restaurants I suggest you get to know it a bit better! Not only does miso give added flavor and gusto to soups, stir fry's and rice bowls, but it's also amazing in salad dressings. The tofu in this dressing makes it really creamy, and is a great alternative to oil.

This miso dressing goes well with a variety of salads and grilled veggies. It is featured here with brown basmati rice and crisp vegetables, for a satisfying vegetarian meal.
