4scallions (or shallots), thinly sliced, including greens
3-inchpiece of ginger, peeled and grated
4medium garlic cloves, peeled and grated
1tablespoonspicy paste (for ex: fermented gochujang paste or a favorite curry paste)
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.
