This one’s got a fun ingredient… glycine. It’s an amino acid (the building blocks of protein) and typically used as a nutritional supplement. In this case we are using it to bring some umami to the party in the same way MSG does without using MSG. It’s not mandatory for the recipe to taste great but it definitely makes a difference. Get some and give it a try!
