Today’s Meatless Monday ingredient is miso.

I really try to be creative on Meatless Monday days – I think some of my more creative miso recipes have already been published here.ย I really thought this would be an easy ingredient for me, but I found it one of the most difficult so far – thinking about it all week and I actually made four recipes.

Two of them had potential, and I will rework them to share with you soon.

These biscuits? I made twice and both times worked very well. I started with a simple biscuit recipe handwritten by my Grandma Z (I used butter in place of oleo…).

They were perfect for floating in a warm bowl of soup – salty, fluffy, with spots of jalapeno and melty cheese…

cheesy jalapeno miso biscuits

1/2 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons miso paste
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 cup gluten free all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 small jalapeno, minced
2 ounces havarti cheese (dairy free), cut into small cubes

In small bowl, stir together milk, miso, sesame oil and apple cider vinegar, combine completely.

In mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and xanthan gum.ย Add minced jalapeno and havarti cubes to flour, toss until coated. Stir miso milk mixture into flour, combining into a dough ball.

Spoon one inch pieces of dough onto prepared (parchment, silpat) baking sheet, bake at 350 for 15-17 minutes.

some of my other recipes using miso:

ginger maple miso ice cream

I was going to try to be super creative for you and say miso ice cream, but of course you did that. Doh. LOL!

I love the idea of miso biscuits though. They actually reminded me of matzoh balls. Miso matzo? You could turn it into some kind of marriage between pho and matzo soup! And then bring me some. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I know, when I asked Jason for help in coming up with an idea, he said ice cream. should have saved it for this week! :)

MMMMM these look good but I love jalapeno anything ๐Ÿ˜‰

no earth balance?


6 spabettie November 7, 2012 at 9:30 pm

you could replace the sesame oil with earth balance?

This look and sound amazing! I just want to bite into one. I’ve got a cold now, too, so a bowl of hot soup with these lil biscuits would be so delicious right meow! :)


8 spabettie November 7, 2012 at 9:29 pm

right MEOW! ๐Ÿ˜€

Wow, these biscuits look amazing! Now I’m picturing all the soups I could float them in–carrot, roasted squash, cream of mushroom, standard faux-chicken noodle…or split and covered with mushroom gravy. OM NOM.


10 spabettie November 7, 2012 at 9:29 pm

YES to the mushroom gravy idea! that is next!

I had a hard time coming up with a miso idea too and I feel like I cook with it all the time! It’s just usually not the star of the dish, so it was tricky finding the right combo. And floating biscuits in a bowl of soup…that sounds so comforting. Grandma would be proud, I bet. ๐Ÿ˜‰


12 spabettie November 7, 2012 at 9:29 pm

so weird, right? when I saw miso on the list I figured – easy, fun! I’d like to think Grandma would be proud… :)

I am a big miso fan – I need to try your lemon-miso hummus and miso-sesame kale chips – they both sound amazing!


14 spabettie November 7, 2012 at 9:27 pm

the lemon miso hummus (actually my friend Sarah’s) is SO SO good! and the kale chips are our favorites around here…


15 Dawn (HealthySDLiving) November 5, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Meatless Mondays? I love it!!!

Looks and sounds amazing!

you should join us for Meatless Mondays, it is SO fun and there’s a little less than half the alphabet left! :)

I love jalapeno cheddar biscuits. LOVE THEM. I hadn’t thought of using miso in them. I’ll have to give it a shot.

And, the ginger maple miso icecream! OH MY. Sounds so good.


18 spabettie November 7, 2012 at 9:25 pm

that ice cream is ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS ON EARTH right now!! ๐Ÿ˜€


19 Macey November 5, 2012 at 4:32 pm

Oooh, the hummus and Kale chips are a must try for me! Something I can probably actually manage to make. Lol!


20 spabettie November 7, 2012 at 9:23 pm

yes, if you like miso both of those are easy and delicious!


21 Marlynn Schotland @UrbanBlissMedia November 5, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Those biscuits look and sound perfect for a day like today! And I love miso. What a creative combo. Love it!


22 spabettie November 7, 2012 at 9:21 pm

the biscuits were definitely perfect with the soup – and will in rotation in the cold weather this year…


23 Lora @cakeduchess November 5, 2012 at 6:29 pm

I love these little miso biscuits and the other miso ideas. I want a bowl of that delicious soup tonight:)


24 spabettie November 7, 2012 at 9:20 pm

miso soup is so SO good…


25 Kelly Klepfer November 5, 2012 at 7:48 pm

So. Following you has made it very clear to me that I am fearful of unknown or untried ingredients. I have a bag of Miso in my pantry. I have bookmarked some miso recipes. I understand the premise of miso and really don’t feel too weirded out, but still I hesitate. Can these delicious looking little biscuits conquer my miso terror? I must try.


26 spabettie November 7, 2012 at 9:18 pm

oh I hope so! sure you don’t want to try the miso ice cream instead? ๐Ÿ˜‰


27 Bee (@TheSpicyBee) November 5, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Holy Moley! You do some awesomely interesting things with miso! And jalapeรฑo! And although very random I love the black bowls you have the ice cream in!!


28 spabettie November 7, 2012 at 9:17 pm

I love those black bowls, they are my favorite (and seemed perfect for the miso ice cream…)


29 Leah November 6, 2012 at 9:09 am

yumyumyum, these look great! I will definitely need to try them!


30 spabettie November 7, 2012 at 9:04 pm

thank you Leah – enjoy!


31 Jeremy November 9, 2012 at 7:28 am

32 spabettie November 9, 2012 at 11:16 am
