Umami Seasoning with Shiitake & Seaweed
About Green Apron's Umami Seasoning
Introducing our Umami Seasoning, the secret ingredient to elevate your home cooking. With our umami seasoning, you will discover a whole new world of flavours.
It's an innovative natural flavor enhancer, tested and perfected over time. It's a favourite among local chefs, who've lovingly dubbed it 'The Umami Bomb'.
This seasoning can elevate soup stocks, stir-fries, and stews. Use it to add a punch to pizzas, salads, noodles, sandwiches, wraps, and even salad dressings.
Our Umami Seasoning is a medley of flavors, featuring a variety of dried mushrooms (Shiitake, Elm Oyster, King Oyster, Pink Oyster, Pioppino), dried seaweed, bamboo shoots, leek, celery, raw mango, garlic, sesame seeds, mace, turmeric leaves, red chili, black pepper, and rock salt.
To make a rich broth, simply add half a tablespoon of the seasoning to two cups of water. Boil it and then let it simmer until it reduces to one cup. This flavorful broth can be used in a myriad of ways, adding a unique taste to your culinary creations.
Here are a few recipe ideas that would benefit from the addition of your Umami Seasoning:
