Miso Happy Hummus

Hummus appears in a cookbook from Cairo, Egypt in the 13th century and probably the dish was made as early as the 6th century or before, right around the time it is said that miso was introduced to Japan from China. Hummus is high in iron, B vitamins and protein. Enjoy this healthful and tasty dip.


2 cups cooked chickpeas
3 tablespoons Tahini
2 tablespoons Chick Pea Miso
2 cloves garlic minced (add more if you're a garlic lover!)
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
ΒΌ cup bean cooking liquid
Olive oil
Fresh parsley (optional)


Drain chickpeas and reserve cooking liquid. In blender or food processor, pulse all ingredients except olive oil and parsley. Add more cooking liquid and olive oil as needed, then blend to reach desired consistency. Put in serving dish and, if desired, drizzle olive oil on top. Garnish with fresh parsley.

Love Letters

Over the years we've been delighted and inspired by your wonderful love letters. Here are a few and you can read more on our website!

"I've never found miso in the US that reminded me of the delicious soups we had there [in Okinawa]. Last night I made some dashi and mixed in some miso and just a little green onion. A simple bowl of goodness was what I wanted. I was instantly transported back to my first flavor memory of what miso should taste like. It tasted like the miso my mom would buy from our local Okinawan store or street vendor. Thank you for making such a fine healthful artisan product."
Helen, Utah

"If I had a choice between owning the Mona Lisa or having a hot bowl of your miso soup.... you can't drink the Mona Lisa. Keep up the good work as the gods smile on you all!"
