Clearspring organic umami paste with chilli may look small, but inside this pouch is a mighty flavour boost with a red chilli kick!

The umami paste is made from koji – white rice that’s inoculated with a naturally occurring fermentation culture. It breaks down the rice into a paste that has an intensely umami flavour. The koji then helps to intensify the umami of anything you add it to! Here it’s mixed with soy sauce, giving it a touch of extra saltiness and sweetness. The chilli gives a hint of red pepper flavour as well as heat.

This organic umami paste with chilli is such a versatile ingredient. Squeeze a dollop into stir fries, curries, soups, or stews and experience a depth of flavour you didn’t think possible. Add umami paste to meat marinades to bring out the meat’s best natural flavours and make it meltingly tender.

Mix the umami paste with chilli with a dash of soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and crushed garlic. Serve as a spicy, savoury dip with side dishes and finger food, use as a salad dressing, or even as a sauce for steak.

Ingredients: organic soya sauce (water, organic soya beans, organic wheat, sea salt) (47%), cultured organic rice (organic rice, koji [0.001%]) (28%), water, organic chilli pepper (0.7%). Contains allergens: soya, gluten (wheat).
