Louie Loves: White Miso Dressing

We know we just told you that this was the dressing you should be making everyday but we have an even newer obsession with this super easy white miso magic. This takes about two minutes to whip up and is light and but flavor packed. Works well on a simple green salad, grain bowls, fried rice, drizzled over chicken, fish or shrimp. Sold yet? We found this recipe over on Bon Appetit and now truly cannot stop making it. It’s so so easy and once you have white miso, doesn’t require any crazy special ingredients. We had really no clue what form white miso would come in or where to look but it seems it can be found in the refrigerated section of your grocery store. At our Whole Foods, it was at the end near the tofu stuff. It’s a paste and comes in a tub. Once that has been obtained you’ll need fresh ginger (we like to keep some in the freezer), garlic, rice vinegar and vegetable oil – all pretty much pantry staples in our book. All you do is grate the garlic and ginger and then whisk everything together. Again – two minutes. It will be slightly thick so you can add a little water to thin it out of you like. We skipped the sugar include in the original because we’re not a fan of sweet dressings. We’ve also made this subbing in apple cider vinegar and sesame oil when we ran out of the actual ingredients. Still delicious every time so feel free to experiment.  Miso has lots of good for you qualities so this is the perfect topper for a big bowl of green things when you need a cleansing meal.

You’ll need:

1 clove garlic
2 teaspoons peeled and grated ginger
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon white miso
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

What to do:

Grate the garlic and ginger into a bowl with a microplane grater (If you don’t have one, chop them up as small as you possible can). Add the vinegar and miso. Whisk in the oil. Add a little water if you want it thinner.
