From the Just Bento blog. This is a savory paste, just 1/2 teaspoon adds a savory flair to a serving or so of blanched, steamed or boiled veggies. I've tried it with green beans and Brussels sprouts. This makes a small quantity, good for about a week, If you make a larger quantity, it can be frozen. I used a light brown miso. If you don't have mirin, use sake. Regular sugar or a sweetener of your choice can be used in place of the raw sugar.
