What is Umami?

Umami basically describes the savory taste present in foods like soy sauce, mushrooms, and even some veggies like tomatoes. Umami is often considered the fifth flavor after the familiar sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. It’s hard to describe but some people say it’s a “meaty” or “savory” flavor.

How To Make Umami Mayo

This recipe is very simple to make. start with a batch of fresh olive oil mayo and then season it with coconut aminos and fish sauce to give it that umami flavor. Nice!

I follow Melissa Joulwan’s basic olive oil mayo recipe because well, she rules and so does her mayo recipe. You can find it here: The Secret to Homemade Mayo? Patience.

If you don’t want to make your own homemade mayo, then find a store-bought brand that uses a healthy oil like avocado oil. There are a lot more options these days than there used to be.
