With its smooth, creamy texture and salty-sweet flavor, Mitoku Organic White Miso is a great addition to hummus, blending with the tahini to enhance this classic dish. Serve with a selection of seasonal vegetables or pita bread and your choice of toppings.


  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp Mitoku Organic Sweet White Miso
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 lemon
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp water

Preparation Method

  1. Wash the chickpeas in a sieve, then simmer in a saucepan for about 20 minutes till soft and mushy.
  2. While the chickpeas are cooking, put the tahini, freshly squeezed lemon juice and white miso in a blender and blend for about 1-2 minutes to form a smooth paste.
  3. Add the cumin powder, paprika powder, minced garlic and salt and blend for about 30 seconds.
  4. When the chickpeas are done cooking, transfer them to a sieve and run briefly under cold water. (Optional: remove the skins from the chickpeas during this step for a smoother paste.)
  5. Add the chickpeas and olive oil to the blender and blend for 1 minute. Add 1 tbsp of cold water, then blend for 1 more minute. Check the consistency and add more olive oil or water if necessary.
  6. Serve with vegetable sticks or pita bread and toppings according to preference.
