Vegan MoFo #14: Pantry Staple - Miso Tahini Magic Sauce
Today's MoFo is something that I've been using like a fiend for three years. My Miso Tahini Magic Sauce is a staple in our refrigerator. It's a dip, it's a sauce, it's a dressing. Put it on veggies, grains, wraps, bowls, salads, anything you want to become more delicious or possibly addicting. Sometimes I want a salad just so I have something to put this on. The best part about it, though, is it's EASY and you probably already have the ingredients on hand.
Miso Tahini Magic Sauce
1/2 cup miso
1/2 cup tahini
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon maple syrup, date syrup, or agave
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3/4 cup water
In a bowl use a spoon to mix the miso and tahini together. Add the apple cider vinegar, sweetener of your choice, cayenne pepper and stir until well combined. Use a whisk to mix in the water. Store in the refrigerator. The sauce will thicken after it cools.
This sauce is great with add-in, like fresh grated ginger, garlic, and spices. Make it your way to make your taste buds happy. Then put it on everything! Carry a jar in your purse! Ok, maybe not, but I wish I could.
