...It is easy!!! When you need a little something extra, but are not quite sure what that is, then just grab some Oomph and your instincts. I am a Southern Belle and make black eyed peas every New Year’s and this year I added No.3 Sofrito Blend. They were fantastic!

I added the Shiitake Umami blend to a tofu stir-fry, used the Sofrito blend in minestrone at lunch time, and sprinkled Refogado on home fries this morning for a breakfast win. Later I'll be snacking on popcorn drizzled with Three Star blend bloomed in butter. I don't normally go in for seasoning or spice blends, but Oomph is different, they are vegetable-based flavor dusts that meld seamlessly into anything you add them to!"
