Miso-dressed Caramelized Roasted Soybeans

A miso-dressed snack that has a salty and sweet caramel taste. The crunchy texture is fun and hard to put down. Instead of soybeans, you can also use and enjoy peanuts, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds and more.
Miso-dressed Caramelized Roasted Soybeans
Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 4


  • 80g/2.8 oz roasted soybeans
  • 40g/1.4 oz granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tbsp ORGANIC MISO RED
  • 10g/0.36 oz butter


  • Put granulated sugar and water into a small pan and heat over medium heat. Shake the pot from time to time until the water becomes transparent and shows large bubbles. As the bubbles disappear more slowly and the texture becomes sticky, add roasted soybeans. Mix with a spatula and dress the soybeans, and when it becomes partially caramel-colored, reduce it to an extremely low heat and heat it slowly to make everything caramel-colored.
  • Turn off the heat, add butter and miso and mix quickly.
  • Take it out and place on parchment paper, hold a fork in both hands, and separate it into bite-sized pieces. Complete when the mixture cools and hardens.
    Key points:
    You can adjust the sweetness and bitterness while watching the color of the caramel when heated. If you like sweetness, turn off the heat with a clear brown color, and if you like a more bitter taste, boil it longer.
