Delicious Thai-style Soup Curry with Shiitake Powder
Adding Shiitake powder to any type of curry makes it more delicious, but as Thai curries use herbs, it pairs perfectly with dried Shiitake!
Shiitake has 2 types of aroma, the scent picked up by the nose before we eat it, and the smell that rises up from deep inside our throat after swallowing it. The latter scent is stronger for Shiitake, so it also amplifies spices' aroma and other ingredients.
Zen monks found Forest-grown Shiitake is the best Umami enhancer for Vegan Cuisine more than 1000-years ago in Japan. The drying and rehydrating process of Shiitake produces "Guanylate," a natural Umami energizer. Guanylate amplifies the Umami taste of all foods.
Unlike Dried Porcini, Shiitake can enhance the Umami taste of your cooking without adding a mushroom flavor.
Tips and tricks:
Adding a little water to Shiitake powder and waiting 10 minutes before using, maximizes 3x the Umami Flavor! One dry Tbsp equals one pre-soaked tsp, the same Umami boosting power.
