Miso Roasted Rack of Lamb

Miso is a fermented paste that adds a salty umami flavour to many Japanese dishes. Most miso is made in Japan, where the ingredient has been used since the eighth century or earlier. This fabulous recipe is from my Mom Roz, who adapted it from a cooking magazine. I honestly can’t get enough of it and it’s now on a regular rotation at my house. It’s delightfully salty, creamy and sweet. Serve the lamb with mashed potatoes or mashed cauliflower and a green veg.
