Who can believe we have less than a week left in Vegan MoFo? September has flown by!
Today’s MoFo prompt encourages us to tell you about our favorite herb or spice. This was a super easy decision for me. Mine is actually an spice/herb mixture called Capitol Hill Seasoning from Savory Spice Shop.
It’s a perfectly savory mixture of dried shallots, salt, pepper, dill, parsley and chives. As you can see from the photo below, my bottle is well-loved.
My first use of it was on a cashew and asparagus dish, that Savory Spice Shop adapted and shared on their website.
A couple years later, I’m still finding good ways to use it. I like it stirred into Earth Balance for an herbed “butter.” It’s good cold for spreading and good melted for pouring on popcorn. It’s a good mixture to encrust on tofu (for me, it’s the original variety of Living Harvest’s Hemp Tofu).
One of my newest and favorite ways to use it is to make a quick ranch dressing/dip. I realized that is everything in it that I added to my homemade ranch except for garlic. So now, I make up an individual serving of dressing by taking a spoonful of soy-free Vegenaise, adding Capitol Hill Seasoning and a little garlic powder to taste, then thin it with water or non-dairy milk. Quick and easy.
In my spice cabinet, aside from the salt and pepper, this has the most accessible spot. I don’t foresee it being kicked out anytime soon. If you haven’t got it in your spice cabinet yet, you might need to remedy that.
