In this guide, I’m going to be talking about some home-made seasoning blend. These will be some DIY recipes that will add some amazing flavour to your food, and it will also end up saving you a lot of money. These are very simple home-made seasoning recipes that are in huge demand, they also have low sodium content, and they are gluten-free. They make for great gift ideas as well. I absolutely love to have these blends on hand, for adding some flavour to some of my favourite recipes. Making your own plants is an amazing way to control your sodium intake and also to save a lot of money. A lot of store-bought brands include additives and MSG content. Even a small bottle can cost you almost 5 to $10. I love these recipes because they’re very clean, and they are completely controlled by me.
You will be saving a lot of money, when compared to store-bought prices. I love the fact that they are so convenient, because they are pre-mixed blends that are on hand. It does save a lot of money, time and hassle. It even encourages a creative way of spicing up all the generic foods like roasted vegetables or even chicken. I can easily create a very different flavour profile, which is completely based on what sounds good or smells good, when I am cooking.
Every single home-made seasoning recipe will approximately take you 7 to 8 tablespoons of mix, but you need to keep in mind that it can be reduced or even doubled. I usually replenish my stock, after considering what I am planning for the menu for the week.
The spices will settle, and sometimes they will clamp slightly, but you just have to give it a mix and stir it every single time you refresh the mix.
You can make use of the best spice grinders to get the right consistency and mix.
Here are some suggestions for your home-made seasoning blends.
- For cajun blend: They can be used on burgers, salmon, chicken and pork as well. You will need 2 1/2 tablespoons of sea salt, 1 tablespoon of oregano, 1 tablespoon of paprika, 1 tablespoon of black pepper, 1 tablespoon of onion powder, 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of cayenne pepper.
- For a chilly seasoning blend, you will need 2 and a half tablespoons of chilli powder, 1tablespoon of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of cumin, 1 tablespoon of onion powder, 1 tablespoon of oregano, 1 tablespoon of sea salt, 1 tablespoon of black pepper and 1 tablespoon of paprika or even smoked paprika.
These are some of the best ones that I make use of all the time.b
