Tofu usually gets such a bad rap. Essentially I reckon it’s a plant-based canvas to soak up a good sauce so that’s why this version of teriyaki works such a treat. Enjoy this recipe with the added bonus of my umami-rich seaweed vegetables.
Most cooks strive to achieve the umami flavour, which is usually a bit yeasty, salty or ‘funky’ and complements the food categories of taste – bitter, sweet, sour and salty. It is the flavour of glutamate, that savoury, moreish flavour associated monosodium glutamate, the famous and often troublesome taste of Chinese Restaurants.Print
