Miso Gravy

I love this miso gravy over cooked greens like kale, collards, turnip greens, or chard, but it’s also wonderful over mashed potatoes. For a complete meal, serve with a side of roasted or plain chickpeas.

Miso Gravy

This Recipe is :





  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 ½ tsp yellow miso
  • ½ tsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 ½ tsp cornstarch
  • Hot sauce, to taste
  • 1 to 2 dashes black pepper


  1. In a small saucepan, whisk all ingredients together, adding a few drops of hot sauce and a dash or two of black pepper.
  2. Taste, adding ¼ to ½ teaspoon more miso if you want a stronger miso flavor. You can also add more hot sauce if desired.
  3. Turn heat to medium and once it looks like it’s about to boil, reduce heat to medium-low, stirring until it thickens slightly. It should be thicker than water or broth, but not as thick as most gravies.
  4. Drench cooked greens or ladle over mashed potatoes.


Any light-colored or mellow miso (such as white or red) may be substituted.
