30 Marmite Recipes

The old adage goes, “You Either Love It or Hate It,” but there’s no way you’ll end up disliking these Marmite recipes. Each of these dishes, from Marmite chicken to Marmite muffins, is bursting with flavorful umami. Here are 30 mouthwatering ways to use Marmite in your cooking.

1. Marmite Roast Potatoes

That I’m a huge admirer of Marmite is no longer a mystery. Even now, Cheese and Marmite Pasta is one of my most-requested dishes, and it’s also the one dish I ever reach for when I’m in a pinch and need some familiarity.

Actually, this is the very first dinner I cooked for Tom, and also the very first meal he cooked for me. We are a Marmite-loving people through and through, so of course the spread would make its way onto our favorite autumn/winter tradition, the Sunday roast.

2. Marmite Popcorn

“It’s like eating Marmite on bread slathered with butter. If you like to smear your Marmite on thick, by all means use two teaspoons, or more if you’re a true addict.

  • Turn the oven temperature up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit (150 degrees Celsius), and turn the gas on. 
  • Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with nonstick paper.
  • Oil should be heated over medium-high heat in a big, heavy-bottomed pan.
  • When the oil is heated, add the corn and shake the pan slightly to coat the kernels evenly.
  • Put a cover on the pan and leave it on the stove, shaking it gently every 30 seconds. When the interval between popping sounds is between two and three seconds, the popcorn is done. Place in a very sizable bowl.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter and Marmite together over low heat, stirring often, until you get a glossy mixture. The popcorn should be thoroughly coated with the Marmite sauce, so pour it over the popcorn and toss it around.
  • Put the popcorn on the prepared baking sheet and bake it for 3–4 minutes to make it a bit crispier.

3. Marmite Chex Mix

This Chex Mix is like the snack worlds of the United States and the United Kingdom getting together and making a gorgeous, crunchy, salty snack agreement that is similar to Twiglets.

Evenly disperse the ingredients on a half-sheet pan. Put it in the oven for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes. The Marmite Chex Mix should cool on the sheet pan. Always keep sealed at room temperature.

Put the ingredients in a big bowl that can go in the microwave. Mix every 2 minutes while microwaving on HIGH for 4–6 minutes. For faster cooling, spread out over paper towels. Keep at room temperature and out of direct light and moisture.

4. Marmite pie

This is not just any regular pie; rather, it is our irresistible Marmite pie. We believe that it is delectable enough to win over even the most ardent opponent.

Turn on the oven to 200 degrees Celsius (fan 180 degrees, gas 6). Apply the remaining beaten egg to the pie. Toasty on the outside and steaming hot in the middle, this dish has to bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Prepare with salad.

5. Marmite Pasta

The world has been missing out on a golden opportunity all along, and that opportunity is Marmite Pasta. No of your feelings about it, it has occurred. To top it all off, it tastes great!

To conclude, yes, Marmite Pasta is a thing. Yes, I’ve been creating this for a long time. The dish has had me completely captivated ever since Nigella Lawson presented us with her Marmite Spaghetti. Get ready to have your tastebuds quiver, since this meal is about to replace your standard method of preparing Marmite.

6. Marmite Sprouts

If you’re following a calorie-restricted diet or a program like Weight Watchers, these Marmite Sprouts are the ideal side dish to serve with a roast dinner. Not only are they delicious, but they’re also wonderful for slimming down.

7. Marmite Chickpeas | Weight Watchers

Anyone who like Marmite will really enjoy these roasted Chickpeas with Marmite seasoning. I make these frequently since they are a great snack and have 0 Smart Points per serving on the Weight Watchers Blue, Purple, and Freestyle plans and just 2 SmartPoints on the Green plan.

You may either roast them or put them in an air fryer. You should definitely try them out. I’m sure you’ll agree that they’re delicious and will quickly become one of your go-to recipes for a satisfying Weight Watchers snack.

8. Marmite bagels

Bagels and Marmite are two of our all-time favorite morning foods, and this recipe for Marmite bagels combines them both into one delicious bake. Smother them with butter or additional Marmite, if you feel up to the challenge, and serve.

9. One Pot Marmite Macaroni and Cheese

If you’re familiar with or a devotee of Nigella’s incredible culinary creations, you’ve probably heard of or even eaten her Marmite spaghetti. If you don’t enjoy the taste of marmite, you probably won’t enjoy this recipe.

It had been a while since I last cooked it, but the thought of a Marmite Macaroni and Cheese kept coming up in my thoughts. If you’ve ever eaten a cheese toastie, you know that a thin layer of marmite smeared across the bread makes for an incredible sandwich.

10. Marmite Buttercream Cake

  • Choc cake: Lightly oil and line 3 x 7-inch round cake pans with parchment paper.
  • Melt the butter over boiling water in a large basin, stirring periodically. Remove dish from heat and stir cocoa powder and chocolate until melted. Mix light brown sugar and vanilla. Whisk in the eggs and egg yolks. Finally, stir flour, baking powder, and salt into the chocolate mixture until just mixed.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the cakes comes out clean. Cool cakes in pans for 10-15 minutes before inverting onto wire racks.
  • Melt butter over low heat for caramel Marmite buttercream. Stir in brown sugar, milk, and Marmite until bubbling. Boil the mixture for 1 minute, then transfer to a bowl. If needed, add more Marmite.
  • Now whisk in half the icing sugar and let cool, stirring periodically. When cold, whisk in the remaining icing sugar until it’s spreadable.
  • To build the cake, spread 14 of the buttercream on one cake, then sandwich it with another, and so on. Cover the cake with buttercream and chocolate flakes. Enjoy!

11. Glazed Marmite & Honey Chicken With Lemony Potatoes

You are in for a real treat if you like chicken that is flavorful and juicy. This dish, which is finished with a delicious glaze and flavored with herbs and spices, is an absolute must to prepare.

15. Vegan Marmite Tofu

Though I don’t regularly cook using Marmite, when I do, this is the dish I always end up making. Marinated and deep-fried (thawed is always my preference) tofu is then mixed in a sweet and salty marmite sauce. It was influenced by the kopitiam’s chicken or pork variant.

Quick and simple to prepare, and if you’re in a pinch for time, you can even forego marinating because the sauce stands on its own. But be forewarned: more rice will be required for this dish.

19. Marmite Chicken

Marmite chicken (), an Asian take on the yeast extract Marmite that is produced in the United Kingdom.

The boundary between liking and disliking Marmite is razor thin. Some people enjoy the robust flavor it provides, while others may find it to be excessively potent.

The Chinese consider the undiluted flavor of Marmite to be too strong to eat, despite the fact that it is commonly used as a spread on bread and toast. So they use Marmite in the rich sauce and on the crunchy coating of the fried chicken that they serve with steamed rice. Thus, the concept of “Marmite chicken” was born.

20. Warm Marmite cake

  • Combine sugar and eggs and beat until fluffy.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl, then sift it and add it to the egg mixture.
  • In a small, heavy-based saucepan, heat the milk and butter. Stir until the butter is melted, but do not boil. Take the mixture away from the heat and incorporate it into the batter.
  • Put the mixture into a prepared 23-centimeter tart pan and bake. Put in an oven that has been set to 180 degrees Celsius and bake for about 40 minutes. Take cake out of the oven. Fork-poke at it.
  • To make the topping, combine the butter and Marmite and pour it over the hot cake while it’s still in the microwave. Serve hot, topped with grated cheese.

22. Cheese & Marmite Pinwheel Biscuits

Cheese is one of my all-time favorite savory meals, and Marmite is one of my all-time favorite spreads. I’ve baked Cheese and Marmite Scones in the past, and I thought that Cheese and Marmite Pinwheel Biscuits would be just as tasty as the scones, in addition to being quite lovely.

24. Marmite Cheese Rolls!

These scrumptious and simple marmite cheese rolls have a marmite and mozzarella cheese filling in the middle and are created using the simplest homemade bread dough.

I combined grated mozzarella with a modest amount of parmesan because of the latter’s intense and salty flavor. The mozzarella really steals the show here by providing the flavor and texture necessary to make the marmite cheese rolls’ luscious gooey cheese center.

It’s up to you whether you want to use cheddar cheese in place of both or just one of these. Attempting to make them dairy-free would be challenging, as dairy-free cheese isn’t nearly as tasty, but it’s not impossible.

26. Cheese & Marmite Scones

  • Place in oven and preheat to 220 degrees Celsius (fan 200 degrees Celsius, gas mark 7). Salt should be added to the flour mixture that also contains baking powder.
  • Butter should be added and the mixture should be worked with fingers until it resembles fine breadcrumbs (or use a food processor). Create a well in the middle and stir in 75g of the cheese.
  • Pour the egg, marmite, and milk combination into the well and stir to form a soft dough that isn’t sticky. If the dough is too dry, add a bit more milk.
  • Upon a floured surface, flip the dough and spread it out to a thickness of about 2 centimeters. Using a round cutter, stamp out 4 scones.
  • Gather the scraps and continue until all the dough is utilized. Place on the baking sheet, sprinkle with the remaining 50g of cheese, and brush with milk. Put it in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until it starts to become brown. Put on a cooling rack.
  • Smother with butter and serve immediately.

It is imperative that you allow these to completely cool before cutting them, since they are quite crumbly just after they come out of the oven.
