Other possibilities: hoisin sauce, sundried tomatoes blended to a paste... Decide why it is used in the recipe -- possibly you could leave it out. And about the salt -- miso is very salty, so adjust to taste.

Or maybe tahini with some soy sauce?

There is no real sub, but since it is a small amount try 2/3 soy sauce with 1/3 sesame oil. Remember the soy is adding salt so cut back on any salt the recipe calls for.

About a teaspoon of soy sauce. Or some vegemite/marmite (probably a teaspoon to start, then taste and maybe add a little more).
