Shio-koji Vegetable Recipes

Here are two different recipes that are healthy and super easy to make. I used shio-koji instead of salt as well. Shio-koji is very easy to make and a lot healthier than regular salt.

Shio-Koji Israeli Salad

1 cucumber peeled and diced
1 diced tomato
1 scallion chopped
1 tbsp of chopped fresh dill
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp shio-koji

1. Chop all vegetables into bite sized cubes.
2. Chop dill and scallions
3. Transfer to container and add olive oil, shio-koji and lemon juice
4. Close container and shake to mix ingredients



Shio-Koji Roast Vegetables

1 cup of brussel sprouts, halved
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms ( your choice)
1/2 sliced red onion
1 tbsp fresh dill
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp shio- koji
1 tbsp olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

1. Cut all vegetables into similar sized pieces
2. Put the vegetables in an oven pan and put shio-koji on top.
3. Drizzle olive oil on top
4. Sprinkle with dill
5. Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes or until vegetables are cooked.

    Such a beautiful site! I would like to know how much sodium is contained in the 1 tbsp shio-koji? I was at the Sunrise Market on 41st St in Manhattan and there were many types of shio-koji. I should have looked, right?Thank You

      Thanks for the comment! I am not sure exactly how much sodium is in 1 tbsp of shio-koji but I do know that the sodium content is much lower than using regular salt. As for the many types of shio-koji, there are several already made ones that are very convenient to use. I usually buy cold mountain koji and make the shio-koji myself at home. To me it tastes even better than the already made one!
