Umami Sauce Recipe (vegan, low-fat, gluten-free, oil-free)

If any of you are familiar with the restaurant True Food Kitchen, you may know they make a sauce for their Brussels sprouts called umami sauce.  Umami is one of the 5 flavors identified by our tastebuds; salty, bitter, sweet, sour, and savory or umami.  Their sauce is AMAZING!  Unfortunately, as is the case with most restaurant food, it’s loaded with fattening oil.  I found the recipe online but tweaked it to significantly reduce the fat and cut the oil.  If you can find oil-free hummus, this would be considered an oil-free dish.  The hummus I had on hand did contain a small amount of oil.

I roasted a mixture of Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, onions and white beans (pictured) to serve with the sauce, but you could use this sauce with any vegetable, bean, grain or even as a salad dressing.  Enjoy!
