Tahini-Miso Spread + Watermelon Radish Toast

by Dishing Up the Dirt

Prep Time: 10 minutes  |  Cook Time: 10 minutes  |  Serves: 4


  • 3 1/2 Tablespoons black sesame seeds
  • 1/8 teaspoon flakey sea salt
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 Tablespoon mellow white miso
  • 1 clove of minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon tamari or soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons water + more to thin if necessary
  • 2 medium-sized watermelon radishes, very thinly sliced
  • 4 slices of good quality bread, lightly toasted
  • 2 scallions, minced, white and light green parts only


  1. Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add the black sesame seeds and lightly toast, shaking the pan often until lightly toasted and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let slightly cool. Using a mortar and pestle (or the back of a spoon) lightly crush the sesame seeds and sea salt together.
  2. With an immersion blender or small food processor combine the tahini, miso, garlic, lemon, vinegar, soy sauce and water. Blend until smooth and creamy-you want a thick consistency but smooth enough to spread on toast. Add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time until you reach the right consistency. Taste test and adjust seasonings if need be.
  3. Spread the tahini-miso sauce over 4 slices of toasted bread and top with a few slices of radishes and sprinkle each piece of toast with minced scallions and a few pinches of the sesame seed/salt mixture (Gomashio) and enjoy.
