“Pure vegetable magic!”—CARA MANGINI, chef and author of The Vegetable Butcher
 
Ingeniously built around the use of eight umami-rich ingredients—aged cheese, tomatoes, mushrooms, soy sauce, miso, caramelized onions, smoke, and nutritional yeast—these 75 recipes are bursting with the sublime, savory fifth taste.
 
Turn mushrooms into “lardons” for a bold take on Southern black-eyed peas and greens. Caramelize onions to use in the best grilled cheese ever. Add a secret spoonful of soy sauce to the frosting of your next chocolate cake—the soy taste disappears but leaves behind an unexpected depth of flavor. Part of the brilliance of Umami Bomb is how the recipes layer these key ingredients to amplify their effect—like adding miso to an already cheesy cacio e pepe sauce for pasta so savory and delicious you’ll do a double take.

YOU NEED ALL THIS FLAVOR!! Eating your vegetables has never been tastier! Even my junk-food-loving husband is already a fan.

I was under no obligation to review this book and my opinion is freely given.This cookbook is designed with the vegetarian in mind, although there is a bonus section with fish recipes. Umami is a taste sensation, a breakdown of protein which results in a heightened sense of taste. The book is uniquely sectioned into categories titled by the…
