Spices & herbs jazz any meal. Lately I’ve been adding this savory spice & herb mix to eggplant, garlic, pasta, grilled cheese, and potatoes–the results are pretty amazing. As with most things, these spices may be adjusted, substituted, or swapped out as desired. I like to use organic or locally loved and grown ingredients when possible.
The amount of each spice I use depends on my mood and the dish. I follow what I like.
Savory Spice & Herb Mix (amount of spice or herb to be determined per usage)
- Cayenne Pepper Powder (or ground Black Pepper if a more mild taste is desired)
- Sea Salt
- Onion Powder
- Garlic Powder
- Dried Rosemary
- Dried Oregano
- Dried Basil
- Dried Thyme
- Dried Parsley
On these six sliced potatoes below I sprinkled the spices & herbs on along with three slabs of butter, diced up, all mixed on a rimmed baking sheet. The oven was 375 degrees Fahrenheit; I placed the tray in, stirred the potatoes every fifteen minutes, checking for the desired crispness. The cooking time was forty-five minutes.
