So delicious that you'll think to yourself, "Is it really tofu!?" Shiitake mushrooms are the special ingredient in this just-like-cream-cheese tofu dip. The trick is to remove the water from the tofu completely!! Make it nice and creamy with a food processor.
Enjoy as a canape, in a sandwich, or as a dip with bread. It can also be enjoyed as an alternative to mayonnaise.
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. The drying and rehydrating process of Shiitake produces "Guanylate," a natural Umami energizer. Guanylate amplifies the Umami taste of all foods.
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.
