Tips And Tricks Part

It is expected that you can only find some of the ingredients everywhere. So here is a list of replacement ingredients if you can’t find the ingredients mentioned in this recipe:

  1. Coconut oil is a good substitute for olive oil if you want to try different oils and have a different taste.
  2. Adding mushrooms to the ingredients will be a great addition, giving a better taste and being healthier for our bodies.
  3. If you don’t have red miso paste, use the standard white miso paste and add little chili flakes.

  5. If you don’t like brown sugar, you can use erythritol.
  6. Sake is challenging; you can use rice vinegar if you need help finding any sake.
