Hodmedod’s, Fava Bean Umami Paste
Similar to a Japanese miso but made with British-grown fava beans Read more
Similar to a Japanese miso but made with British-grown fava beans, our fermented Fava Bean Umami Paste is packed with deep rich umami flavour with subtle notes of sherry.
Deep, satisfying umami flavours that burst with fizzy fermentation, complex soy like flavour with a natural sweetness that is really harmonious and delicious. This is a secret weapon to add to all manner of dishes from broths to stir-fries and everything in between.
It's made with just fava beans, water and salt, fermented with a live culture of Lactobacillus delbrueckii, Aspergillus sojae and Zygosaccharomyces rouxii.
From time to time our stock pouches may get pierced during transit, when you come to defrost the stock we recommend placing it in a bowl, just in case to capture any liquid.
