Miso Happy Hummus

Hummus appears in a cookbook from Cairo, Egypt in the 13th century and probably the dish was made as early as the 6th century or before, right around the time it is said that miso was introduced to Japan from China. Hummus is high in iron, B vitamins and protein. Enjoy this healthful and tasty dip.


2 cups cooked chickpeas
3 tablespoons Tahini
2 tablespoons Chick Pea Miso
2 cloves garlic minced (add more if you're a garlic lover!)
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
ΒΌ cup bean cooking liquid
Olive oil
Fresh parsley (optional)


Drain chickpeas and reserve cooking liquid. In blender or food processor, pulse all ingredients except olive oil and parsley. Finally, add the olive oil and more cooking liquid as needed, then blend to reach desired consistency. Put in serving dish and, if desired, drizzle olive oil on top. Garnish with fresh parsley.

Love Letters

Over the years we've been delighted and inspired by your wonderful love letters. Here's one we'd like to share and you can read more on our website!

"I just wanted to let you know that I love your miso. Being a native of Japan, I am particular about miso. I used to use organic kurodaizu miso, which has a nice deep flavor.

I moved to the US several years ago and pretty soon I found myself out of the miso I brought from home. Fortunately there is a Whole Foods store in my neighborhood, where I spotted South River Miso.

Your miso is one of the best I have ever tasted. I always keep Three Year Barley and Sweet White miso in my refrigerator. Thank you so much for making such wonderful miso."
