Sweet and Spicy Miso Sauce

This sweet and spicy miso sauce is great for stir frys, grilling veggies, marinating tofu, as a salad dressing, and much more.

I have had great success using it in stir fry's, brushing it on bok choy and grilling it to perfection, and in rice noodle dishes.

Also try thinning it out a bit more and tossing sliced cucumber in it. Yum!

Feel free to customize it to your personal spicy level!
