Miso Tare


  • 1 cup white miso, or chickpea miso
  • 1 teaspoon crushed chile flakes
  • 4 scallions (or shallots), thinly sliced, including greens
  • 3- inch piece of ginger, peeled and grated
  • 4 medium garlic cloves, peeled and grated
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 1 tablespoon spicy paste (for ex: fermented gochujang paste or a favorite curry paste)


  1. Combine the miso, chile flakes, scallions, ginger, garlic, mirin, and spice paste in a small saucepan over gentle heat. You just want to warm this for a few minutes, to get the ginger, garlic, and scallions to sweat a bit.
