We’ve done our best to harness the elusive ‘fifth’ taste, umami, in our Umami Seasoning Blend. The literal translation of umami in Japanese is perfectly, ‘the essence of deliciousness’ and can often be found in fermented, roasted or pickled foods – but can also include fresh food and pastes. We have a combination of porcini powder, black garlic powder, sweet paprika, tomato powder, white garlic, onion and sea salt in our blend and are yet to find a dish it doesn’t enhance! It works wonders with this chicken and mushroom casserole, which is perfect for serving with mashed potato or a mixture of wild and white rice to soak up the sauce.
Chicken breast can also be used, reducing cooking time accordingly.
