Simple Umami Paste


One of the all time viral recipes I have ever written is for Umami Paste. Umami is the fifth flavour (salty, bitter, sweet, sour and yes, umami) and when you add a tablespoon or two of this magic little paste to anything savoury, you will suddenly find the flavour is enhanced and you are enjoying your food a lot more. Umami paste can breathe life into lack luster soups, sauces, bolognaises or gravies. So get your Umami paste sorted immediately.
