Miso Veggie Dip
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.
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.
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)
