DIRECTIONS

  • Toast the walnuts in a dry skillet, stirring and watching carefully to make sure they do not burn. Burning makes them bitter.
  • Turn the walnuts into a paper towel and rub most of the skins off.
  • Transfer the skinned and toasted walnuts into a food processor and process until as fine as you wish.
  • Combine with the mirin, miso and sugar, stirring together well.
  • Add desired amount to steamed veggies - a little goes far, you can always add more.
  • Refrigerate remainder for up to a week or freeze.
