The interesting thing about the umami taste is that it can be exponential. Salt, on the contrary, is straight addition; as you add more salt to your food, the salty taste increases. Umami works differently; as you combine ingredients with high umami quotients you can leverage the ingredients so that the umami-whole is greater than the sum of the umami-parts. Enjoy!
This one dish meal has it all - sweet, salty, crunchy and smooth. This recipe definitely has a Vietnamese influence and is just so tasty. From a local grocery store's magazine, please try to use low sodium ingredients. Enjoy!
Meatballs are always a hit. You can serve them as an appetizer with dip or as a main dish with pasta, rice or in soup! Naturally The grated carrot keeps these lean meatballs juicy and gets your kids (and picky adults!) to eat veggies without even knowing it. This is a recipe from the Canadian beef industry. Enjoy!
This is an other awesome recipe from Barbecues Galore. "Grilled bananas are pure awesomeness. Definitely not 'low-fat' but it's awfully delicious. Combine with some ice cream for a dessert that you will love." Enjoy!
These crepes are not your typical French variety! Asian crepes tend to be 'eggier' and don't even use flour! The sesame oil adds a terrific flavour and these can be rolled up with sauteed asparagus, shiitake mushrooms or any other veggie that you prefer. Chicken or shrimp would also be very good in these. They can also be frozen and used at a later date. This is a Roger Mooking recipe. Enjoy!
This recipe takes very few ingredients and only a few minutes to put together! This healthy blend of bok choy and scallops would go great over some steamed rice. Slightly adapted from a Chatelaine recipe. Enjoy!
I had this dressing on a simple Asian cabbage salad at a no-frills little lunch counter. The dressing was so good that I had to ask the lady there for a copy, which she was happy to share. Try this on a crispy cabbage salad and top with sunflower seeds. Enjoy!
Why is it naked? Because you can dress it with whatever extra touches you want. Add sliced green onion, fresh garlic or ginger, cilantro, whatever sounds good to you. Feel free to increase the sesame oil or chili oil as well. You can also use this as a stir fry sauce. Enjoy!
This recipe's a winner - it's got enough flavour for the more adventurous in the crowd and yet it's not spicy at all. It is a sweet and oh so tasty recipe. I did NOT include the overnight marinating time. Enjoy!
I'm so happy that this turned out so well! I added a bunch of ingredients that sounded good and they really are good together. The skin was left on these because it crisped up nicely under the broiler. I served this with rice and veggies. Enjoy!
