In many of my recipes, I call for something called House Spice. This isn’t something you can buy at the store, so I figured I’d include a little explanation – or recipe – for house spice.
In general, when I season vegetables, meat, sauces, pasta, anything really, I begin with a base of a little salt, black pepper, and garlic and then continue on from there. Instead of getting three different containers out and using each of these one at a time, I combine all three into one. I got this idea from a good friend* of mine. Thank you!
Here’s how I put it together:
2 parts salt
1 part ground black pepper
1 part garlic powder
Combine all these into a shaker. It makes seasoning food so much easier and faster, and it’s good on and in everything!
