Kitchen Staples: Braggs Aminos

June 25, 2011

This is one of the only soy products we use, but it’s definitely a staple.

Bragg’s is like soy sauce, but with a milder taste.

We use Bragg's in place of sea salt when we want to add a rounder, umami flavor (Japanese for “pleasant savory taste”) to soups, salad dressings, sauces, and marinades. A small pump-spray bottle of Bragg's lives on our counter, next to the raw olive oil and nutritional yeast, so that we can swiftly use all three on our daily salad servings.

Available in every single health food store on earth.

If you're ready for an even higher quality umami seasoning, try Nama Shoyu—raw soy sauce.
