I read about Marmite, and was curious what all the fuss was about. I Googled it, and found people are very passionate about it. It seems it´s either a love or hate situation.  Then, one day I saw a shelf of little Marmite jars, of all places, in an ethnic Indian store. Of course, I purchased it. Cool

 

I really didn´t know exactly to do with it. I ate it plain, and found it was a little too strong for my taste. I ended up mixing it with tahini and eating it that way. Now I´m addicted to it. I like it mixed with the tahini a few sprigs of something green, then spread on toast, or mixed in a grain. It reminds me of miso, but the texture is different.

 

If you eat Marmite, how do you use it?  It´s not that easy to find here. I guess I´ll have to go back to that Indian store for more.

Marmite

 

Love it!!  Most usual way is on toast but marmite and cucumber sandwiches are nice. SmileDid you know it gets its name from the French word ´marmit´ which is a kind of earthenware pot because - apparently - Marmite was first sold in an earthenware pot.  It is made from yeast and is suitable for vegetarians although it looks ´meaty´ and the Australian version is called ´Vegemite´.

Marmite is one thing I always ask anyone visiting us from the UK to bring out with them!

The advertising slogan for Marmite in the UK is ´Love it or Hate it´!

Hmmm cucumbers, I hadn´t thought of that. I have been putting it with cilantro. Mix the Marmite with tehini, put on toast or flat bread and place a few sprigs of celantro on it. Yummy! I love that umani flavor. I also put it in quinoa with the tehini.

I think some people have a definite taste for umani type flavors, mayabe they have more need for protien?  Here is an interesting article on umani

 

Maybe now that so many have read about your love of Marmite, you will get more...{#emotions_dlg.yes}

My mother-in-law always used it as the basis for stock when cooking with red meat. 

I love marmite too. Only a thin scraping is needed. I like it on toast, topped with cheese then grilled. 

I also love Twiglets

Ahahahaha, alameda made ma laugh. She is so funny.

Marmite of course I tasted when I first came to England. I suppose it is mainly british invention despite the french rootes, I dont know, mainly due its popularity. No where else it is as popular as in here. Although it will definitely be loved in Poland. Whenever I travel to Poland I have to grab 5-10 big jars of marmite. Most of my friends love it.

I kinda liked it at the beginning. I liked it with main sunday meal, roast chicken and I loved mixing it with hot potatoes. I dont like it with sandwiches. For sandwiches I use pickles.
