I love MSG!

Last night, my wife made a soup that was out of this world -- a vegetarian soup with kale and white beans and sweet potato. Now, my wife is, in general, a decent cook, but there are few things she makes that I rave about. But, as I said, this soup was fabulous, one of the best things she ever made.

Of course, I had to look into the ingredients, and was not all that surprised to learn that the magic ingredient was vegetarian bouillon cubes -- or in other words, MSG. What a difference-maker that stuff is! It's like there's a font of deliciousness in this world, and its name is MSG.

So that's my little paean to MSG. I just wish it didn't feel so much like cheating.

It must be good, considering the sheer number of food items you find it in. Unfortunately, there's a few of us with internal plumbing that's intolerant of MSG. It would give me a perforated duodenal ulcer and I'd be in agony for several days if I ever ate anything with a lot of it in it, like Chinese food. I guess One man's meat is another man's poison and all that.

That soup does sound delicious. Lucky you!

MSG. The single malt of sodium glutamates.

MSG, it's one of my secret ingredients too. My roommate swears her head will explode if she consumes a single molecule of it, but she loves my cooking and I never tell her it's in there. Of course, I wouldn't do that if I hadn't already seen her consume foods I knew contained it. But I swear, 49 out of 50 people who say they're sensitive to it aren't.

Am I the only one who popped in here thinking this was a "Michael Schenker Group" appreciation thread ? ;-)

My immediate thought was "Yeah, it's a nice enough arena, as long as the Knicks aren't stinking the place up..."

MSG hits the fifth sense of taste identified by Japanese researchers, umami (translation: "deliciousness")

Nope. I went "MSG... now why do I recognize that... somewhere in the past... Hey, wait a minute - It's Michael Shenker Group...! Somebody writing a thread about how he/she loves Michael Shenker Group?! That can't be."
And of course, it wasn't.
