made this several times now and it is so tasty! i toasted the walnuts before making the sauce, and i think it enhances the flavor. this keeps well in the fridge too. i make up a double batch and then can toss it with my veg at short notice. definitely a keeper!

Loved the Walnut Miso sauce, goes good with the green beans, belive it would be good with other veggies. Made it just like the recipe stated didn't change a thing, Very easy to make. Served it with Roasted chicken and Jude's Chili Poblano Polenta and a side salad. Thank you Chia for another yummy recipe.
