Namikura Kyoto-Style White Miso

Savory, sweet and flavor-dense, white miso is an absolutely essential pantry item. Winey-sweet, buttery and deeply rich, this organic version from Japanese family producer Namikura Miso Co. is more complex and less salty than other brands, which means it can be used more freely with soy sauce without dishes tasting overly seasoned. Namikura has been making small-batch miso for five generations using traditional methods and is one of our favorites for bold, balanced flavor.

Make a Miso Broth with Namikura's product and experiment with building a soup out of your favorite meats and vegetables—one of the best things about miso is its adaptability to all kinds of ingredients. We like to layer its savory flavors with rich, meaty mushrooms in our Miso-Shiitake Soup with Napa Cabbage. Or blend Kyoto Shiro White Miso with soy sauce to make a sweet and savory glaze in recipes such as our Miso-Glazed Broiled Salmon or Miso-Glazed Chicken with Mushrooms, both of which are quick and easy thanks to miso's complexity and do-it-all flavor. For even quicker recipes, try this miso as part of a dressing in our Miso-Ginger Chicken Salad or as the key flavoring for our Soba with Miso Butter and Asparagus.
