Low Carb Maggi Mayo and yeah I know, it’s a play on the old Rod Stewart song but the name is so apropos. As its name implies, it is made with mayonnaise and Maggi seasoning sauce. Now who has a jar of Maggi in their pantry? Um, I do. If and after you are to acquire it you will find many other uses for it. As a seasoning a little goes a long way and you can make as much or as little as needed. I use this mayo in the Banh Mi Sandwich. It can be slathered on a bun-less hamburger and the Maggi sauce by itself can be used in soups & stews. I’m pretty sure you will find lots of uses.
Here are some interesting facts about Maggi: 1.) It is sold in a dark brown bottle with a yellow label. The colour of the bottle cap changes from country to country: a red cap is used in Switzerland, Germany, Canada and France; a yellow cap is used in China and the Netherlands. Most Americans see the yellow cap. I don’t begin to remember where I got mine but notice it has a red cap and lucky me. 2.) Maggi is a dark, strong, concentrated seasoning sauce, that is produced commercially and sold in bottles and 3.) It is a thin sauce, with the consistency of soy or Worcestershire, which it looks like but definitely doesn’t taste like. Well, who knew? Just took a good look at my bottle and apparently I bought it at Pacific Market here in Portland which specializes in Asian foods. As I said I don’t remember buying it but I would easily have gone there just to look and how ridiculous and since when would I go into any market just to look? If you enlarge the picture it says: Imported From Europe.
It takes very little Maggi seasoning for use in anything and that’s also the case here but my oh my the umami flavor is so good. The only other thing that comes close is Porcini Dust which I use in lots of recipes. I’m feeling long-winded and wait till you see the actual recipe. If nothing else, it should make you laugh at its brevity.
