A purée of British grown and fermented fava beans full of rich umami flavour. Similar to a Japanese miso but made with British-grown fava beans, Hodmedod's fermented Fava Bean Umami Paste is packed with deep rich umami flavour with subtle notes of sherry. Hodmedod's British Fava Umami Paste is fermented in the same way as many soya bean ferments used for miso, black beans, soy sauce or tamari, but using fava beans instead of soy beans.
Add approximately half a teaspoon to stir fries, stews, soups, dressings, stocks and more for umami depth and fruity, sherry flavour.
It's made with just fava beans, water and salt, fermented with a live culture of Lactobacillus delbrueckii, Aspergillus sojae and Zygosaccharomyces rouxii.
Keep refrigerated and use within 4 weeks of opening. 175g.
