What are you trying to make? What is your idea with the black bean sauce?

I like the miso/soy idea, but would consider reducing the soy first so you get sufficient bang for your buck without adding too much liquid.

Thanks you guys for your help - it came out great! I started with beans (duh :-) and then did the old add / taste / add method - zest from an orange, juice from half of it, dash of tamari, dash of fish sauce, crushed red pepper, a dab of dark miso paste, minced garlic, fresh minced ginger, a splash of vinegar. I will never have to buy it again!

I prepared this recipe this evening with garbanzo beans I had in the fridge. I used Shiro Miso and did not use enough. I have hatcho miso and should have used it but I am trying new types of meals on hubby and wanted to keep it mild. I think I should have used more miso though. I used chili sesame oil and forgot the ginger! All in all it wasn't bad and hubby loved it.
