Miso paste is a staple ingredient in Japanese cooking made by fermenting soy beans, alongside other possible ingredients such as barley or rice, with koji, an edible fungus that can grow on rice that is also known as "rice malt". Miso can hold a variety of flavours and textures from sweet and smooth to savoury depending on the ingredients used and the fermentation time, but this makes it great to experiment with in a variety of Japanese dishes.
