miso mustard cabbage slaw

i recently came across some shiro (white) miso on sale, and have been lovin' the new recipe options. you can find miso at most health food stores, or for a cheaper option, the oriental or asian markets carry it too. i made this slaw for lunch one day and fell in love...


  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 2 cups cabbage/carrot mix
for the dressing:
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3/4 tablespoon mild miso (yellow or white)
  • 3/4 tablespoon mustard (whole seed preferred)
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1+ teaspoon bragg's aminos
in a medium skillet, heat sesame oil on medium. add the cabbage or slaw mix, and saute for about 3-5 minutes. turn heat to high and add a teaspoon of water. cook the cabbage for about 1-2 minutes more until it starts to turn translucent, but not wilted.

in a separate bowl, mix up the dressing ingredients. start with the miso and water, and whip with a fork until the miso is emulsified. the combine the rest of ingredients, adding as much bragg's as you see fit. i used arran original mustard, with whole brown and yellow mustard seeds. pour cabbage out of skillet, and coat with dressing. serve warm.

i can't believe i've never thought of going to an asian market to get cheaper miso. duh! i'll have to go soon. miso is so expensive at krogers, but i love it SO MUCH.

This is a great idea. Miso seems like the perfect ingredient to add bold flavor without the calories.

Yum, warm slaw! I don't think I've ever had cooked cabbage in slaw, but it's a great idea. Especially with miso. I adore miso. Sometimes I have miso soup for breakfast and pretend I'm Japanese.
