Makes about 1/2 cup


  • 1 Tbsp miso (any type)
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 2 Tbsp almond butter
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2" ginger, grated
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • water, as needed
  • handful minced scallions and/or cilantro (optional)


  1. Mix together the miso, tahini, and almond butter until well combined. Stir in the garlic and ginger, then the lemon juice.
  2. Add water, a little at a time, until it reaches a thick-but-pourable consistency (~1/4+ cup). Stir in the scallions and/or cilantro, if using.
  3. Taste, and adjust seasonings as needed.
  4. Pour over whatever hippie concoction you desire. The sauce will thicken upon standing, so just stir in a little additional water or lemon juice to loosen leftovers.
