You know me, I am all about maximum results in minimum time! How can I get the most delicious dish possible, the easiest way possible?
One of my tricks is definitely having ‘flavour makers’ up my sleeve – a sauce or a sprinkle (homemade of course!) that turn a dish from zero to hero, adding an injection of flavour with very little effort. One of my go-tos is my delicious Mushroom Salt – it takes less than a minute to make and will store in the pantry indefinitely, meaning you can always have some on hand to jazz things up, turning a boring meal into something really satisfying.
Add it to literally anything savoury, both while cooking and at the end to season. It also makes a beautiful homemade gift!
But, of course, this isn’t my only secret flavour maker recipe…. I’ve got a whole chapter of them in my cookbook Everyday Thermo Cooking, complete with suggestions of exactly when and how to use them. I am all about making your life easier! So you can cook from scratch, but still have time for all the other wonderful things in life.
This recipe is gluten free, vegetarian, dairy-free, and vegan!
It yields 1 cup of flavourful salt.
100g rock salt
30g dried porcini mushrooms
½ tsp dried chilli
1. Place all ingredients in TM bowl, or food processor bowl, mill for 30 seconds, speed 10.
2. Wait a minute before opening the Thermomix lid – this will allow the fine powdery salt to settle.
3. Transfer to a glass jar or airtight container.
