Miso Butter
Yield: 6 tablespoons
The nuanced flavor of this incredibly easy compound butter elevates plain meats, veggies, and pasta. A pinch of the optional cayenne isn't enough to make the butter spicy but does add a little something special.


  • 4¬†tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2¬†tablespoons miso
  • Optional: a pinch of cayenne or freshly ground black pepper


  1. Cream the butter and miso together with a fork, adding the optional black pepper or cayenne if desired.

    Use immediately or roll into a log in plastic wrap or parchment paper and refrigerate or freeze for cutting into slices later.
