Miso Dipping Sauce

By Mark Bittman

Published January 10, 2024

Miso has become a much more popular way to add umami—the savoriness often called “the fifth basic taste”—to just about anything, not just Japanese food. I like this with sautéed greens, whole wheat pasta, roasted vegetables, and just about anything grilled. Choose a light miso like white or yellow for a subtler flavor, or red miso for a powerful punch.
