[mahr-MEET] Marmite is a cooking pot, typically slightly squat with or without lid and two short little handles. The pot is made of clay and used for cooking soups. The clay imparts a specific flavor to the soup or stew. Marmite is also a brand of "yeast extract". MARMITE is a vegetarian concentrated yeast extract paste, spread on toast for breakfast, in sandwiches at lunchtime, or as an added ingredient in stews and casseroles. The product is very similar to Australian Vegemite.
If you don't have Marmite you can substitute another brand such as Vegemite which is less sweet OR Promite. Alternately you can substitute per tablespoon needed:
1 tablespoon brewers yeast OR> 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes OR> 1 tablespoon miso OR> 1 tablespoon peanut butter (for use on toast)
