Miso Cucumber Sticks

Miso Cucumber Sticks Recipe - A quick and easy healthy snack to make and munch on!

For the longest time, I thought I didn’t like miso. I remember dining out at a sushi restaurant a few times and getting served a little bowl of miso soup, and I just wasn’t crazy about it. So my conclusion? That I didn’t like miso.

This all changed when I tried my friend Brenda’s Miso-Butter Grilled Veggies on a trip we were on with Land O’Lakes last June. I was CRAZY for those vegetables. They had so much flavor and I remember going back for seconds and thirds. Now I’ve got a big tub of miso in my fridge, and I make her recipe using oven roasted vegetables. I’m such a fan!

Now that I’ve got miso as a staple in my fridge, I’ve been playing around with it more. These Miso Cucumber Sticks are one of my favorite snacks to make with it.

All you do is mix together miso paste, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and honey:
