Further Food Commentary:

Miso is a fermented soybean paste that is often used in recipes to give the meal a savory, almost meaty flavor (umami). Miso paste can be used in soups, sauces, or marinades, as well as in dressing, like this recipe. Because it is fermented, miso paste contains probiotics, which are good bacteria that aid in regular digestion, bowel movements, and a strong immune system. You can find probiotics in most fermented foods, such as kimchi, sauerkraut, or kefir. Tahini is a paste made from sesame seeds. It is a good source of healthy fats and protein. Turmeric, a relative of ginger, has gained popularity recently as its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties are being studied. Turmeric provides a deep yellow color to dishes such as curry. To cook with it, you can either buy the fresh root and grate it, or buy it in powdered form in the spices aisle.
