Miso Butter

Never expose miso butter to intense, direct heat—doing so dissipates some of the flavor (similar to extra-virgin olive oil). Miso butter should always be swiped over, stirred in, or dolloped on just before serving.

1 / 2 cup

  1. Stir the butter and miso together. Use right away or refrigerate it in an airtight container for up to a few weeks. Let the butter sit at room temperature to soften before using (don't microwave the miso butter to soften it).
