Speciality Ingredients miso paste

Made from soya beans, onion, garlic, ginger and soy sauce, our Speciality Ingredients miso paste can be used in many Japanese dishes.

Flavours from afar

If you've ever tried miso soup, you'll know what a delicious, intensely savoury flavour this fermented Speciality Ingredients Miso paste has. With a taste that is pure 'umami', the Japanese word for savouriness, miso adds a lovely richness to miso soup, fish, chicken, broccoli and aubergines.

Try it in...

Made with soya beans, this Japanese paste is delicious when added to beef stews or used as a marinade for chicken thighs and white fish. It also tastes great as a dressing for leafy green vegetables such as broccoli, spinach and cauliflower. Simply combine it with a little sugar and mirin (sweetened rice wine) and drizzle over your veg.
