How to use red or brown miso instead of white
You can follow this quick rule to ensure the dish retains the sweetness of white miso, even if you’re using red or brown.
Yield: 1 serving
- ½ tbsp red miso paste (or brown, which is the same)
- 1 tsp mirin
Whenever you add 1 tbsp for red or brown miso, add 1 tsp of mirin (sweet Japanese rice wine) or 1 tsp of white sugar.
You can also add less red miso and just change the amount. Add 1/2 tbsp of miso for every tbsp of white miso instead.
