Dashi (Soup Stock)

Dashi actually refers to a group of broths that can be made from steeping various ingredients in either cold or warm water. The simplest dashi is vegan, made from cold-brewing kombu (more on that below), while stronger versions are created by squeezing the flavor out of bonito flakes (katsuobushi), dried sardines, dried shiitake mushrooms, dried shrimp, dried scallops, adzuki beans, and/or toasted soybeans.

Among the different dashi, the common thread is the incomparable umami flavor. What does that mean exactly? Translating roughly to “deliciousness” in Japanese, umami is that rich, savory, tongue-coating quality that lingers on your tongue and makes certain foods so irresistibly delicious. The sensation of umami (and its primary source, the amino acid glutamate) was discovered in 1908 by Dr. Kikunae Ikeda, who linked glutamate to kombu. In the years since, food scientists have identified other chemical compounds where umami exists. And when various sources of umami are present at the same time, the taste is not just added but multiplied
