You’d think that, as a vegetarian, you’d be excluded from the wondrous umami packed flavour of oyster sauce. Well, you’d be right and wrong!
Lee Kum Kee produce a delicious vegetarian oyster sauce substitute, labelled Vegetarian Stir-Fry Sauce!
Made with shiitake mushroom extract instead of oyster extract, this veggie friendly option is packed full of umami deliciousness without the guilt of harming any living creatures!
The mushroom sauce is made very similarly to its oyster-based sister-sauce. The extract is made by boiling kilograms of mushrooms for hours to extract as much flavour as possible. The mushrooms are sourced from only the best producers, and the temperature is closely monitored to make sure the flavour extracted is of the highest possible quality.
Obviously, it’s difficult to get that delicious 5th flavour from most vegetarian foods, so Vegetarian Stir-Fry Sauce is a fantastic additive to a whole host of meals.
If you’re a fan of broths and noodle soups, Lee Kum Kee’s Vegetarian Stir-Fry Sauce is a fantastic way to elevate the flavour and add some savoury delciousness without dominating the subtle vegetable flavours.
If steamed or sautéed vegetables are more your thing, it’s the perfect sauce to drizzle over the top to finish off the dish and really give it a rich, delicious flavour.
Or if you prefer stir-fries, nothing adds that delicious depth of flavour like the veggie oyster sauce. It’s salty, full flavoured and adds a wonderful colour to the delicious and healthy veggie stir fry you’ve got cooking in the wok.
So next time you find a recipe you’re in love with but calls for oyster sauce, don’t throw it away, simply reach for the Lee Kum Kee Vegetarian Stir-Fry Sauce!
