Carl and Maki Umami Salad
IntroductionUmami Salad Umami Salad
* 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!
