Untitled design (7)
Preparation Time:
Cooking Time:
4-6 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 2½ cups dark maple syrup
  • 15oz chickpea miso
  • 10oz sugar
  • 2½ cups apple cider vinegar
  • 5oz gochujang (Korean red pepper paste)


  1. In a saucepan, combine all ingredients.
  2. Place the saucepan over medium heat. Stir the mixture well to combine all the ingredients.
  3. Allow the mixture to come to a gentle simmer. Reduce the heat to low to maintain a simmer for approximately 20 minutes. Stir occasionally during this time.
  4. As the mixture simmers, it should thicken slightly, and the flavours should meld together. You want a smooth and slightly thickened sauce.
  5. Once the spiced maple miso sauce has simmered for 20 minutes and reached the desired consistency, remove it from the heat and let it cool.
  6. Transfer the sauce to a clean, airtight container or jar. You can store it in the refrigerator for later use.
