Vegetarian / Quick & Easy Garlic & Chili Oil Miso Paste August 25, 2018 / by Junko You will get addicted to this spicy and delicious miso paste! So easy to make and good with vegetables and rice. You can use it as a seasoning when you make stir fries too. I added peanuts (or sesame seeds works too) to give a nutty fragrance and a crunchy texture!
