You guys are going to love this recipe. Have you ever used miso paste before? If you haven’t tried it, you are totally missing out. I’m not even kidding. It’s like a million ingredients all rolled into one, which makes it the perfect choice for quick and easy meals.
I bought my first package of miso paste last year. It came in a big plastic bag in my grocery’s freezer section (actually, it was the freezer within the international section). It seemed so expensive when I was buying it. I think I spent eight dollars on it. Yes, eight dollars for one ingredient. But, hear me out. I still have it.
Now, I know that there’s probably some sort of shelf life to it, but there isn’t an expiration date on it. It still smells just a great as it did when I first bought it, and it tastes just as fresh. If you know anything about the shelf life of miso paste, please feel free to leave a note in the comments, and let me know if I should toss it or not.
Anyway, my point it that I love this stuff, and even though it stressed me out to spend so much on one thing, I now think it was totally worth it.
