Paleo Spices: From Bland to Mouthwatering

Paleo Spices: Kick your paleo cooking up a notch


Now that you have taken the time and effort of Stocking a Paleo Pantry and Stocking a Paleo Fridge, don’t forget to add flavors to your foods by using a broad assortment of paleo spices.  No piece of meat, fish or fowl cannot be made even tastier by including the right paleo spices in your recipes.

 

To save the time of opening multiple spice bottles each time I season a dish, I keep some homemade “blends” on hand, already mixed together in larger bottles.  Here are 3 examples of paleo spices (I use all organic spices):

 


 

MEXICAN SPICE BLEND

 

  2 TBS. each:

  • chili powder
  • paprika
  • cumin
  • onion granules or powder
  • 1 TBS sea salt

Shake all these together and keep in a tightly sealed glass jar. (I recycle small jam jars for this use). Use this blend for things like taco mix, enchilada mix, taco salads, chilies. You can skip buying those unhealthy, chemical filled spice mix packets at the market. Not only are they expensive, but often contain fillers, preservatives and non-organic spices.

 

SAVORY MEAT BLEND

  • 1 TBS. granulated onion,
  • 1 TBS. paprika
  • 1 TBS. sea salt
  • 2 tsp. granulated garlic
  • 2 tsp. ground basil
  • 2 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. marjoram
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. rosemary

Use this blend for roasts, steaks, burgers, game meats, offal, and potatoes.

 


 

ITALIAN BLEND

  • 2 TBS. oregano
  • 2 TBS. basil
  • 2 TBS. ground marjoram
  • 1 TBS. ground rosemary
  • 1 TBS. sea salt
  • 1 TBS. granulated garlic
  • 1 TBS. granulated onion

Use this blend with Italian dishes, salads, gluten-free pastas and potatoes.
