Organic Miso Caramel Sauce


This oh-so-easy Organic Miso Caramel Sauce recipe is to die for! It is perfect for dipping fresh fruit, topping ice cream or drizzling over flourless chocolate cake! Not familiar with miso? It is a traditional Japanese seasoning most used in savory soups, but is also used in sauces, dressings and spreads.  Made through fermenting soybeans with salt and koji, the flavor is described as salty, savory, earthy and fruity. The complex flavor-profile of miso makes it a wonderful addition for making this healthier version of a classic caramel sauce.

3/4 cup
4 tablespoons organic butter or Natural Grocers Brand Organic Plant-Based Buttery Sticks
1⁄4 cup organic full-fat cream, non-dairy half and half, or full-fat coconut milk
1⁄3 cup Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Organic Coconut Sugar
3 tablespoons organic white miso paste
1⁄2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract


1. Combine butter and cream in a small saucepan over medium heat. Once butter is melted, add coconut sugar and stir to combine. Cook, stirring constantly, until desired consistency is reached, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for a moment.

2. Whisk miso paste into the caramel, one tablespoon at a time, until fully incorporated. Whisk in vanilla extract. Serve immediately or store in a glass container. Caramel will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week. Rewarm before serving.
