Umami Sauce

If you’ve ever savored a meal at True Food Kitchen, there’s a good chance you’ve experienced the magic of their umami sauce. Umami is one of our five taste sensations, alongside salty, bitter, sweet, and sour. True to its name, umami boasts an unmatched savory depth that elevates every dish it graces. However, restaurant fare often comes with a hidden downside – excessive oil and fat content. But fear not! We’ve revamped the recipe to preserve the incredible flavor while significantly reducing the oil. Welcome to the world of umami sauce that doesn’t compromise your health or taste buds.

A Versatile Marvel for Culinary Exploration

While we adore pairing this umami sauce with roasted Brussels sprouts, it’s a versatile condiment that complements a myriad of ingredients. Whether it’s drizzled over roasted vegetables, incorporated into your favorite grain bowl, or even used as a dressing for refreshing salads, the possibilities are endless. Let your culinary curiosity and creativity guide you as you discover the perfect combination to showcase the umami sauce’s delectable essence.

Crafting the Perfect Umami Sauce

To create this flavor-packed concoction, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup hummus (preferably oil-free)
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable broth
  • 1.5-2 tablespoons tamari or other low-sodium, gluten-free soy sauce
  • 4 large cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • Water (to thin if desired)

Combine all the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth and creamy. If you prefer a thinner consistency, add water gradually to achieve your desired texture.
