Yummy Umami Bombs
If you’re unfamiliar with the term ‘umami’, it’s one of the five basic tastes (the others being sweet, sour, bitter, and salty). Umami can basically be described as a “savory” taste, which definitely sums up this chip recipe perfectly. Not only are you getting the famously distinctive taste of Parmesan cheese, but the use of ingredients like Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper all help to add an unbelievable amount of flavor to these chips as well.
Speaking of the Italian seasoning, while you could just go out and buy some from the grocery store easily enough, I prefer to make my own from scratch at home using a variety of tasty ingredients. Just mix together some oregano, thyme, basil, rosemary, sage, and marjoram and you’ve got everything you need to make your own savory, or rather your own umami Italian seasoning. More importantly, this mixture of culinary herbs also provides you with quite a few impressive health benefits, such as helping to prevent cancer and fighting inflammation. (1)
When it comes to actually making the Parmesan chips, there’s nothing to it. Simply mix the cheese together with the Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper in a bowl and then spoon the mixture out onto a baking sheet, leaving about two inches of space between them. Bake them for between 6-8 minutes and then let them cool completely before you serve them. You’ll be in and out of the kitchen in about 10 minutes.
