I say miso! You say… soup? Sure! There’s nothing wrong with stirring salty, funky miso into a warming broth—and you can bet we have a not-recipe riff—but what about using a bit of the mellow, refreshing paste on toast with eggs or for a fancier PB&J? Or dressing up a weeknight chicken dinner with red miso’s umami punch? Even dessert can get a little miso treatment. So, if you’re curious to see what miso can do, here are 14 of our favorite ways to put that paste to work.
