AVOCADO AND CREAM CHEESE Great For MISOZUKE| Effortless Pressed Sushi Recipe

MISOZUKE AVOCADO TOAST Food & Recipes

AVOCADO AND CREAM CHEESE are the perfect buddies as you know.

MISOZUKE is the type of Japanese cooking technique, which is marinating food in miso paste/ or the MISODOKO.

I talk about MISOZUKE vegetables in this post (or you’ve jumped this pot from there, thanks!) in case you want to check it out later.

What’s Taste Like MISO flavored AVOCADO?

Unexpectedly, creamy Avocado and miso flavor go well together. When using red miso paste, it’ll be salty and creamy, the taste like a mild cheese.

Miso and butter are already known as a good combination, and avocado has a buttery flavor, so there is no doubt that avocado and miso go well.

Add ground garlic to the miso paste, or drizzle olive oil or roasted sesame oil before serving to the avocado can arrange the flavor to enjoy more.

The rich creamy buttery avocado flavor will be upgraded by marinating the miso paste packed with rich UMAMI flavor.

Miso And Cheese Are Good Buddies

Miso and cheese are fermented food, and they are already good buddies.

Both have a rich Umami flavor and enhance each flavor to combine together.

Cream cheese or mozzarella cheese especially go well with miso flavor, yet, try several kinds of cheese to make misozuke and find out your favorite.

I would say less salty cheese is better for Misozuke.

I use cream cheese wedges packaged individually since it is easy to marinate.

MISOZUKE AVOCADO RECIEPS

Effortless Sushi: Pressed Sushi With Misozuke Avocado

Rico McConnellRico McConnell
“Pressed sushi” called Oshizushi is a traditional type of sushi, which literally made by pressing sushi rice and ingredients in a container. Aesthetic, this block-shaped sushi can be an eye-catching dish at a party. Moreover, it is effortless, and super-easy to make even if you've never tried making sushi. Since this recipe is used Misozuke avocado and cream cheese, so I skip seasoning the sushi rice. You can make 8 cubed pressed sushi.
