Miso is a fermented paste that’s a cultured mixture of soybeans, a grain (like rice or barley), salt and koji (a mold). Keepwell Vinegar has taken traditional miso-making ways and adapted them for the not-so-typical miso-making grains that are available here in PA & MD! Their White Miso is a wonderful take on a classic. It’s a little younger, a little sweeter and not overly salty. Both the Gochujang and White Miso can be used in sauces or glazes to give an exotic flavor to ordinary dishes.
Sweet potatoes are a great ingredient to have already cooked and ready to leap into a salad or grain bowl. Because we’ve started carrying miso products in the Marketplace this week, I wanted to create a simple and quick recipe that highlighted the sweet potato and miso…it’s a winning combo!
