Miso-y Peanut Dipping Sauce

Another recipe?? I've gone all industrious on you! No, this is just a little one - a simple (but completely addictive) dipping sauce for those gorgeous rice-paper rolls we're all making now that spring has finally sprung. Whenever I make something that my guy really loves, 9 times out of 10 it has miso in it. This has miso in it:

Miso-y Peanut-y Dippin' Sauce

1/2 cup of peanut butter (I like it how I like my babies - chunky)
1/4 of soy sauce
1/4 cup of lime juice
1 tablespoon fresh miso (the refrigerated kind, see note)
1 tablespoon brown rice syrup

Whizz it all up in a food processor or blender, dip with abandon. If you have any leftover, it makes a really good salad dressing too!

Note: Miso. Miso is one of a handful of ingredients that changed my cooking life, but it's gotta be the good stuff. The live stuff. And the live stuff has to be kept in the fridge, because it's alive. I will admit that it isn't always easy to find - I have to make a special trip to a good health food shop (Sheel Pharmacy in Lewisham usually stock it, sometimes unusual kinds too, like Tex-Mex!) or Whole Foods. But if you can find it, it makes all the difference - I can't vouch for the shelf-stable kind. This is my favourite variety of my favourite brand:

Go forth, and roll!
