Know Your Miso:

There are several types of Miso, here’s a quick breakdown of their flavor profiles:

White Miso (Shiro Miso)~Known as ‘sweet’ or ‘mellow’ miso. It has a milder flavor that can be built on and is adaptable—great for soups and veggies

Yellow Miso (Shinshu Miso)~Has a mild flavor profile and ranges in color from light yellow to light brown. This works well with soups and as a glaze.

Red Miso (Aka Miso)~Saltier than the other varietals. Has a more distinct flavor and is perfect for marinades or glazes and richer soups. It can sometimes overwhelm other ingredients in a dish, so you only need to use a small amount.
