Honestly, the best way to use Yondu is to add a few spoons to whatever you're already cooking--season to your preference. 

 

 

 

Remind me. What is Yondu?

Yondu Vegetable Umami is a new pantry sauce that works as a shortcut for building great flavor.

It's made from slow, triple-fermented soybeans and flavor-rich broth (simmered and concentrated from 8 different vegetables).

Why is Yondu such a high-impact ingredient to have in your pantry? Generations of fermentation knowledge + time + complex umami from vegetables!

Ingredients: organic soybean essence (organic soybean, water, salt), vegetable stock (onion, white radish, leek, cabbage, carrot, shiitake, ginger, garlic), yeast extract

How do I use it? 

Everyday home cooks and professional chefs alike use our vegetable-umami sauce as an all-purpose flavor hack that doesn't compromise on ingredients. Use as a quick way to build flavor.

  • A few spoons of Yondu is a versatile addition to soups, stir-fries, sauces, and marinades for an instant umami boost.
  • Use Yondu to replace/enhance fish sauce, oyster sauce, bouillon, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, liquid aminos, or other flavor bases.
  • Add warm water to turn Yondu into a flavorful and clean-tasting broth, or to enhance the flavor of homemade stocks, broths, or dashi. 

 

 

With that being said, #howyouyondu is totally personal (everyone has their favorite way to use it). 

When your Yondu arrives:  

  • Taste-test: dilute yondu with some hot water to get an idea of the taste. Try around 1 teaspoon with 1/2 cup of hot water.
  • Experiment: Add a few teaspoons to something you cook that's savory, delicious, and familiar. Something you can reliably whip-up, a dish in your repertoire, or perhaps even a classic family recipe!

Always season to taste with Yondu and reduce added salt (or salty-ingredients) to taste. Some people omit salt when using Yondu while others don't. It depends on your salty/umami balance preferences.

 

 

The following places are great ways to start experimenting with Yondu.
Tag us in your most delicious creations with #doyouyondu:

  • Soups, stews, braises, curries, casseroles
  • Stir-fries and sheet-pan roasted vegetables, tofu, proteins (Add yondu towards the end of your stir-fries, or the water content in Yondu may steam your vegetables. Yondu also helps speed up the caramelization process, so browning will happen faster!)
  • Sauces: pasta sauce, dressings, marinades
  • As a broth replacement or to boost homemade stocks/dashis (1 cup water, 2 tsp Yondu)

Yondu adds the perfect umami

It’s one of the best umami sauces I have tried. It adds that right amount of oomph to the recipe.
