White Miso Hummus

by . Featured in AT MY TABLE

Introduction

While I freely concede that adding sweet white miso to hummus produces something of a culinary culture clash, the result itself yields a deeply seductive spread. I must also confess that I have to stop myself adding sweet white miso to pretty much anything I'm cooking: it always provides such depth and rich, smoky savouriness.

While it can be eaten as a dip, I like this best slathered on toast with a few more drops of toasted sesame oil and sprinkled with some sesame seeds; and for parties, you can spread it likewise on small, plain crackers.

You'll find it easier to measure out your tahini if it's at room temperature first, and give it a good stir before spooning out.

For US cup measures, use the toggle at the top of the ingredients list.
