Anchovies are one of the crucial ingredients in making stock and broth in where I was brought up and my favourite Korean food.It was the source of umami (or savouriness) that will give your soup a great flavour. 🤔

However, there are ways you can recreate that UMAMI using plant-based ingredients🥬

I have been using this combination to veganised all recipes and it is working very well!🥰

There are a few staple ingredients you need:
- Kombu/dried kelp
- Dried shiitake mushroom
- White radish/daikon
- Soy bean (especially in Chinese recipes)
- Spring onion roots

Kombu and dried shiitake mushrooms give you that fishy/ocean flavour. White radish provides sweetness (do you know MSG is made of radish extract?). Soy beans are high in protein which made a great substitute to anchovies in providing UMAMI🧅

I got this idea to use spring onion roots in making stock from watching Korean cooking videos. They gives sweetness to the broth but in a very mild way. Such a good way to reduce waste😍

These ingredients has a very mild flavour. They are able to provide that OHM without overpowering the flavour of the dish😋
