ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons fermented soybeans (Chinese, black, fermented-this is VERY important!)
  • 14 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sherry wine
  • 1 -2 tablespoon miso

directions

  • Combine soy sauce and sherry in a small bowl.
  • Optionally rinse off salt from the beans. If you have a garlic press, press beans directly.
  • into soy sauce mixture otherwise just put beans in the sauce. Let this sit for at least 10 minutes so that beans get soft.
  • Mash together and add miso.
  • When ready to use, strain out solids.
  • *The fermented black soybeans can be found in and Asian market. They are not the same as the black beans you would use in a black bean soup. These are coated with a white salty layer, and I bought them in a bag from the nuts/spices section of the store.
