Story Behind this Recipe
This is a convenient all-purpose miso sauce that you can use in dishes. My kids love this as a sauce for rice wrapped with steamed cabbage or lettuce. Add gochujang if serving to adults for a spicy kick.
Mix each of these sauces well. If you add the sesame oil in at the end, it's easier to mix. As for the spicy sauce version, adding in some finely chopped leeks makes this extremely delicious, but if you're going to be storing this for a while, don't add them in. Instead, add them in right before you're going to eat it.
