Q: I made these spinach and shiitake turnovers, which use 1 tablespoon of miso paste. Any ideas of things I can do with all this leftover miso paste?
Thanks for any help!

Editor: First of all, remember that miso paste keeps almost indefinitely in the refrigerator. There's no need to use it up quickly!
My favorite use for it is still a big pot of miso soup. You can make it a fuller meal with the addition of rice and an egg:

Readers, what are your favorite uses for a tub of miso paste?
