Miso Sauce

This miso tahini sauce is very simple and quick to make. It is full of very nutritious ingredients. The flavour will vary greatly depending on the type of miso you use.  For a very light tasty one use Shiro miso but really any miso will work.

  • 2 Tbsp Light Tahini (sesame butter)
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon juice
  • 3-6 Tbsp Hot water
  • 1-3 tsp Miso


  • First, with a fork mix in the miso with the tahini.
  • Then blend the water slowly into the miso/tahini.
  • Blend all of the ingredients together with a fork. It will make a thick sauce. Add more water if you would like it a bit thinner.
  • Add any of the other optional ingredients below that you would like for added flavour.
  • Now enjoy your miso sauce as a topping on vegetables or grain.


Added Flavour Options:  
You can get creative and add any of the following ingredients for some added flavour to your sauce. 1 clove garlic, finely chopped. 1 tsp grated fresh ginger. 2 drops of stevia.
Usually, I put this sauce on steamed vegetables but I also see my guests adding it to their rice too as they like it so much.
