Namikura's Sesame Miso is a mellow miso paste that balances the intense saltiness of fermented soybeans with the nutty, bittersweet flavor of sesame. Black and white sesame seeds, both whole and pureed, are blended into the miso and traditionally fermented for three months, resulting in a mild product that tastes like a perfect balance of miso and tahini.
We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.
Use Namikura Sesame Miso as you would traditional white miso in soups, stews, sauces and marinades. Try blending it with rice vinegar for a quick vinaigrette. The nutty flavors pair particularly well with chicken and fish, as well as any roasted vegetables. Its creamy texture is perfect for making compound butter, which can then be smeared on bread, folded into grains, or used to rub a whole chicken or cauliflower before roasting.
Japanese family producer Namikura Miso Co. has been making miso for five generations using traditional methods, and the company's products are widely recognized throughout Japan for their nuanced flavors.Shop All
