Umami Salad Umami Salad
Number of Servings: 1


    * Umami, 1 serving
    * Arugula, 1 cup
    * *Tomatoes, red, ripe, raw, year round average, .5 cup cherry tomatoes
    * *Lemon Juice, 1 fl oz
    * Soy sauce (shoyu), low sodium, 1 tbsp


Umami is everywhere!  It's been recently 'discovered/accepted as true' in America a decade or so ago, compared to the Japanese's identifying/naming it more than 100 years ago, most notably with another of their healthy staples, seaweed.  

It can be found in fermented products such as Aged Parmigiano Reggiano or shouyu.  For those that are vegetarian or vegan, splashing this on your meal gives a fuller, more satisfying feel in the mouth than just salt alone.   

But this Hawai'i, and shouyu is ubiquitous, so I'm sure not spouting any new information here.  

Hope you enjoy this if you try it!


Locally-grown Arugula and tomatoes drizzled with organic olive oil and a generous squeeze of a kind neighbor's stupendous Meyer lemon, a dash of organic shouyu aka 'soy sauce' (more delicious fermented soybeans, and packs a power-punch of umami, meaning more flavor and mouth-feel then just salt. There's also Tamari shouyu- wheat-free - for those that avoid gluten like kryptonite), salt and pepper to taste, if you so desire.  And that's it!
