9780345291073: The Book of Miso

Truly delicious and a highly nutritious natural source of protein, miso is an inexpensive, all-purpose seasoning that is low in calories and cholesterol-free. Available in a variety of warm, earthy colors, each with its own distinctive flavor and aroma, miso can be used:
-- like bouillon or stock in soups and stews
-- in dips and dressings
-- like cheese in casseroles and spreads
-- as a topping for grains, vegetables, or open-faced sandwiches.

Here is a complete introduction to miso cookery with more than 400 tempting recipes
-- A list of places to purchase miso in the United States
-- Easy-to-follow instructions for making it at home
-- And an optimistic statement of the vital nutritional role miso can play for all humankind in the protein-short years ahead.

A basic staple of every Chinese and Japanese kitchen, miso is an inspiration to creative cookery, a miraculous addition to the American menu, and a food for the future.
