Sprinkle a little of this mushroom powder on just about anything for instant umami. We think of it as magic powder, because it has all the earthy power of porcini mushrooms. It can be used in spice rubs, dredges, sautés, creamy dips, sauces and anywhere you want a little oomph. And it’s available year-round, which fresh porcinis certainly are not.
Any mixture of spices can use a bit of porcini powder, whether destined to be rubbed on a turkey, beef, lamb or game bird. Soups, creamy or brothy, as well as stews, can benefit from a soupçon of this precious porcini powder.
