Do you use "native" ingredients outside of their cuisine
So ... Is that like Italians using tomatoes and peppers in their cuisine, neither of which are native to Europe?

No, of course not. Are you even reading the same thread?

Oh, I totally forgot! I have been getting so much kale in my CSA box lately, and I really just like sautéed kale the best. But I do like to mix up the ways I make it.

My old default was sautée some sliced onions in olive oil or reserved bacon fat and chili flakes. And then add the kale with some chicken broth or concentrate if they are available. This way is pretty good.

But the other day, I decided to use miso paste as a booster - I have a chicken stock paste that is good from a "health" perspective, but doesn't always boost the umami as much as I want. So I decided to throw in a teaspoon of miso. It was delicious, and I think I will do this all the time. I great way to add a fermented food!

Soy sauce makes wonders for grilled veggies. Mashooms, Onion, Pepper. garlic. Delish!

You can not tell it is in there but it brings them to the next level.

Do you even know where tomatoes and peppers originated?

I always find it fascinating, that the Italians are now known for tomato based dishes & in the UK & Ireland, it is potatoes. None of which they would have had 700 years ago.

Yes. Potatoes too.

However that clearly is a different question than what this thread is getting at, which is where the commonly associated ingredients are used in other cuisines. Come on, the OP's comment mentioned a Trader Joe's Japanese sauce.

So are you really interested in whether the gist of this thread, or more interested in demonstrating your knowledge of food history?
