WHAT IS MISO? 

Miso is a fermented bean paste traditionally made from soybeans and rice koji (malted rice) and salt. It is a beautiful umami-flavoured paste used for dressings, dips, marinates and even in some desserts! However, in this class we will be using chickpeas instead of soy to make this miso!

WHAT IS KOJI?

Koji will be used as the starter to ferment Japanese food such as miso, sake, mirin, soy sauce and amazake.  We will be using rice koji made from cooked rice, which is inoculated with a culture that is called̴ Aspergillus oryzae Koji-kin in Japanese.

WHY USE CHICKPEAS, NOT SOY?

Chickpeas

For years now, the topic of soy has been quite controversial, as studies have shown that it could cause a host of serious health problems (ex. cancer, thyroid issues, infertility etc.) 93% of soy is genetically modified and research has also linked the consumption GMOs to many health issues and allergies. That is why we wanted to create a class where you can learn how to make miso without soy.

WHAT IS AMAZAKE?

Amazake is a naturally sweet (no sugar added) non-alcohol drink made from koji and glutinous rice. However, many commercially sold Amazake from Japan is sweetened with sugar and made by sakekasu (the rice pulp from making sake) mixed with water.  Amazake is not only a delicious dessert, but it is also very nutritious as it contains Vitamin B1, B2, B6, Folic acid, Oligosaccharide, Cysteine, Arginine and Glutamine and plant-based lactic acid which is great for gut health!
