I've been on a hunt for miso for the past month or so, since it's an ingredient in a few recipes I want to try. I haven't made it to any Asian grocery stores, where I'd be MOST likely to find it, but I've scoured every gourmet food section of my favorite discount stores, the local Whole Foods I walk to for lunch tacos, and the HEB shelves multiple times. Nothing.
Then, one glorious day, I THOUGHT I found it. Miso Easy is miso, right?? $5, on the HEB shelf, into my cart. I was so excited.
Not only did it work, our neighbor was over to play video games with my fiancé and I offered him some and he kept going on about how awesome it was. He said he'd never had salmon before but absolutely loved this. Cory even took a bite, despite hating most fish, and said he'd eat it next time I made it.
I think that's a win, don't you?
