Fermented Flavour Bomb Paste in the Thermomix

Fermented Flavour Bomb Paste in the Thermomix

The real name for this traditional Japanese seasoning is ‘shio koji’, but I figured fermented flavour bomb paste was a better descriptor for this book! It seems a little strange, but it’s actually an incredibly easy ferment and one which is easily incorporated into your daily cooking, bringing out umami flavours in any dish. It is a probiotic, so excellent for gut health, and breaks down proteins and starches, tenderising and bringing out sweetness. For the most cucumber-y cucumber you’ve ever tasted, toss in flavour bomb paste, allow to sit for 15 minutes, then enjoy. A cucumber has never tasted so good!
