Umami Taste #5 Tomato Bisque

As a specialty food store owner we are often sent things to try out to see if we want to carry them in our store.  Well this new Umami Paste is pretty tasty let me tell you!  Umami Taste #5 comes in a tube and will add that “wow” factor to any food.  The following is a Tomato Bisque recipe that I added it to and it changed it to be even better.

Tomato Bisque

  • 2 Jars or one large can San Marzano Tomatoes (preferably organic) About 5 cups
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 2 teaspoons Aleppo Pepper
  • 4 cups Chicken Stock
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Umami Taste #5 paste
  • sea salt & cracked black pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • creme fraiche for garnish
  • chiffonade of basil for garnish

Saute the onions in either olive oil or butter along with the dill and aleppo pepper until the onions are translucent.  Add the tomatoes and chicken stock and simmer.

Make a roux with the 2 Tablespoons butter and flour and cook for approximately 2-3 minutes (don’t brown the roux).  Add this to the soup and whisk to incorporate.  Add the salt and pepper and Umami #5 paste.  Bring to a boil, stirring and skimming.  Lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.  Add the chopped parsley, honey and cream.  Remove from the heat and blend until smooth.  Strain through a medium sieve.  Re-heat and serve with creme fraiche and some chiffonade of basil.
