1/3 cup miso (Mugi)

2-3 Tbsp. water

  5. Heat a pan on low heat, add 4 Tbsp. sesame oil and miso, sauté until a fragrant smell is given off. Add water to soften. Around the edge of a big plate arrange the tortillas and put scallions in the center. Serve miso to each person in small bowls. Each person should put one tortilla on their plate, add scallions and miso, and roll it up.
