Tahini Miso Power Balls

Miso adds a “what’s that?” flavour switch-up to these sweet-savoury energy balls that can help you get through the mid-afternoon energy slump or a spirited workout. A coating of sesame seeds lends this nourishing snack a nice crunch.

Nutrition bonus

Tahini supplies a healthy mix of heart-benefitting mono- and polyunsaturated fats, as well as a range of essential nutrients including thiamine, phosphorus, and copper.

Salty, earthy, and funky, miso is a versatile ingredient made from fermented soybeans. The colour of miso will predict how it will taste (and how you can use it). Lighter shades (white and yellow) are fermented for less time, have a sweeter flavour, and are what you can use for dressings, sauces, glazes, and even desserts (yes, peanut butter miso cookies are a thing). Red miso is fermented for a longer time, giving it an earthier, more intense flavour that can elevate hearty stews and braises.
