Miso Veggie Dip

Does anyone know what they put in the miso dip that comes with veggies in a cup at 7-11? I can't imagine that is is difficult to make, and I'd rather make it myself than buy it at the convenience store.

  1. If you can describe it I can try to help you recreate it. Is it nutty (sesame paste - nerigoma)? Or sweet (mirin or sugar)?

    A great and easy dip is mix one part miso (preferably sweet kome miso) and one part nerigoma (or peanut butter). Then dilute with dashi (or water). Great, easy to make, and will keep for a few days in the fridge.

    Also, Marukome Miso has come out with an "Eki Miso" or liquid miso. I mix that with the nerigoma (sesame paste) and it is great for vegetables.

    1. re: Yukari

      Thanks for the suggestions! I'll try the miso/nerigoma mix and see if that's close.

      It was nutty (I do think it had nerigoma in it), not sweet and a bit spicy. It's the spicy part that I can't place...I don't think they just put togarashi in the mix, but I'm not sure what other spice might be used.

        I wouldn't rule out togarashi. The miso dip that came with the vegetable sticks at one of the other conbini (Nat Lawsons?) had a separate packet of togarashi that you could add to taste.

          Hmm, I haven't seen that at the combini, but I'll give the different variations a try and let you know how they turn out!

    2. If there is something spicy in it, try mixing in rayu (spicy chili oil). You can control how hot you want it.

      1. Yeah, I was looking for a recipe myself. After looking at the packaging it says 「味噌マヨネーズ付き」 which is something like "Miso mayonnaise included"
        I haven't tried it myself but I found a pretty simple recipe that calls for:
        100 g Mayonnaise
        25 g Miso
        (And don't forget that dash of Togarashi for a bit of zesty)
