Ingredients

  • 4 tsp brown miso paste
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp cashew butter , or another nut butter (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the miso paste in a saucepan with 800ml water. Whisk to dissolve, then bring to a simmer. Add a little more water if needed.

  • STEP 2

    Mix the cornflour with 2 tsp water until smooth, then stir a little of the mixture into the miso. Let it bubble and thicken, stirring occasionally. If the gravy isn't thick enough, add an extra splash of the cornflour mixture.

  • STEP 3

    For extra richness, add the nut butter (if using) to the mixture and stir well. Season to taste, then serve.

RECIPE TIPS
MAKING A SMALL AMOUNT?
We’ve used brown miso paste, but if making you're making just enough for one or two people, instant miso soup sachets do a decent job as well – just thicken with cornflour mixture a splash at a time until it’s the consistency you want.
