How to
use Dashi

Stock

 

There are two ways to prepare Kayanoya stocks. If your dish requires clear stock, infuse the packet in a saucepan with water. If your dish does not require clear stock, empty the contents of the packet directly into the water. Both methods result in a full-flavored stock.

Infusion

One packet per 1 ¾ cups water (400 ml) for regular strength dashi or two packets per 2 cups water (500 ml) for hearty dashi.

  • Step 1.

    Place water and an unopened
    packet in a saucepan.

  • Step 2.

    Bring water to a simmer over medium
    heat, and hold temperature for 2
    minutes.

  • Step 3.

    Remove and discard the packet(s).
    Stock is ready to use.

Alternative Use

You can also tear packet(s) and empty the contents directly into a saucepan with water. Bring water to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, and hold temperature for 2 minutes. Stock is ready to use.

Season

 

You can add dashi powder directly to dishes for a surprising flavor boost. Add dashi directly to stir-fried dishes... use as a rub for meat, poultry or seafood... add to pasta or pasta sauces... use as a seasoning for rice and grains, hamburgers and more... sprinkle on pizza dough before baking.

Instructions

Simply tear open a packet of your favorite Kayanoya Dashi and add extra umami to your traditional favorites. Then use your imagination!

Storage and Tips

Cooking

 
  • One packet of dashi is for 2-3 servings.
  • When using dashi for soup and simmered dishes, add the dashi packet prior to warming up.
  • When using dashi as a seasoning for dishes such as stir-fry, reduce heat and sprinkle dashi after the steam has decreased. The amount of dashi powder used can be adjusted to your taste.

Storage

 
  • Prepared stock stays fresh for 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator.
  • Open the foil bag and remove only the packets you need. Immediately press the bag to remove air, and close as tightly as possible. Store in a cool, dry space. Refrigeration is not recommended.
