Spice & Herb Blend

  • Ground cinnamon
  • Dried kelp
  • Garlic powder
  • Ground mustard seed
  • Red chili pepper
  • Cayenne
  • Ground cumin seed

You can easily mix this tasty spice blend yourself. Fresh is best; when possible, grind your own spices from the original dry source (think cinnamon sticks, mustard seeds, an actual dried cayenne pepper). If a mortar and pestle is not your thing, use a coffee grinder and blend the spices together to taste. Store in a glass jar for up to a month.

To use, simply add the spice blend to your meals just as you are finishing cooking the dish – about 1 minute before you turn off the heat. Add to your soups, stir-frys, fish and veggie dishes, and bean and grain dishes.
