Best way to use it?
Use it in Dressings for Veggies or Salads. Put it in Stews or Soups, it can also be used to flavor & marinate Tofu.
Because Miso is a Live food it must not be heated to a high temperature, that will kill off the Protective Enzymes. If adding Miso to Soup or Stews, leave it until the very end. (I like to add it to each bowl separately so that even leftovers can be heated safely without harming the Miso). Always remember to keep it refrigerated.
