All-Purpose Almond Umami Sauce

This creamy sauce, whose ingredients include almond butter, reishi mushroom powder, nutritional yeast, liquid aminos, and seasonings, has multiple functions and can be repurposed into a dip, dressing or even a mustard-type topping. Created by Chef Rob Corliss of All Things Epicurean on behalf of the Almond Board of California.



Serves: 1 Tbsp (12g), Servings per container 20
  • 4 oz Almond Butter, Creamy
  • 3 fl oz Almond Milk, Unsweetened
  • 0.5 fl oz Lemon Juice, Fresh
  • 0.34 oz Liquid Aminos
  • 0.35 oz Light Brown Sugar
  • 0.10 oz Red Reishi Mushroom, Powder
  • 0.10 oz Nutritional Yeast

  1. Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk to evenly combine. * Viscosity should be similar to a medium-thick satay sauce, that gently coats the back of a spoon. Sauce typically gets thicker upon refrigerating (depending on almond butter variety & thickness). If sauce becomes too thick, simply thin it out with a touch of almond milk to desired consistency.
  2. Place All-Purpose Almond Umami Sauce in a sealed container and refrigerate a minimum of one hour to allow the flavors to fully develop before using. * Utilize the All-Purpose Almond Umami Sauce chilled, in multiple applications.
