Are you tired of the same old salt and pepper seasonings? Wondering how to add more flavor to your food while still limiting salt. Here are some fun ideas for adding a little zest to your meals!
We love using fresh and dry herbs and spices as rubs and marinades, or as a finisher on a cooked meal. What we may not realize is that just a sprinkle of some fresh herbs or citrus does the same job that salt would do - or better! Simple Seasonings:
Here are a few spice mixes you can try that have mostly the same ingredients, but with a few tweaks:
Herbs De Provence - Thyme, rosemary, basil, mint, lavender, tarragon
Zaatar - sesame seed, thyme, sumac, aleppo chili flakes (optional)
Garam Masala - Cumin, coriander, fennel, green cardamom, black pepper, cinnamon, ginger
Jamaican Jerk Seasoning - Thyme, allspice, parsley, paprika, onion and garlic powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cumin.
Not only do all of these wonderful herbs and spices help make our food more flavorful and delicious without adding extra salt, they have wonderful health benefits as well (helping with digestion and immunity). Have fun experimenting in the kitchen!
