Background

Red miso is made from soy beans, barley and other grains with a long fermentation process to create a mature taste, rich in umami flavours. The intense, salty flavour of red miso is a popular choice for giving many dishes a richer flavour and is commonly used in stir fries and as a marinade for meat and vegetables.

How To Use

Miso is most famous for miso soup, but has many other uses. Red miso is especially best in stir fries and as a marinade.
