When Nguyen was developing her rendition of the cult condiment Kewpie, her husband saw how easy it was to make and dubbed it “quick prep” mayo, hence the homonym-acronym name “QP.” Use it in Nguyen’s Char Siu Tofu Bao Sliders or any dish that could use a swipe of mayo. The MSG gives it savory depth, but you can use 1 tsp. fish sauce or Marmite instead of the MSG or mushroom seasoning. The flavor will not be equal, but you’ll still get an umami boost.
*Raw egg is not recommended for infants, the elderly, pregnant women, people with weakened immune systems…or people who don’t like raw eggs.
