Ever wanted to create your own spice mix? Just us?! Dried herbs and powdered spice mixes are a great way of adding flavour to the most humblest of dishes and as you can buy herbs and spices in large packs, they’re also a cheap and efficient way of packing your food with flavour without mounting up the costs of fresh ingredients.
This spice mix is created mainly by Dan, Rivkie’s fiancé, although Rivkie will claim she helped with inspiration, detailing the kind of flavours she wanted and showing Dan some of the spice blends that she likes to use on everything from chicken to roast potatoes.
This spice mix really and truly is an EVERYTHING spice mix. We’ve used it to marinade red meat, sprinkled on white fish, rubbed into roast chicken and definitely try it with roast potatoes too!
It’s a spice mix that you’ll find featured in several recipes on The Style Life – wherever it is mentioned we will link back to this page too as a reminder.
The amounts below give you approximately 40g – which is the size of one of those standard small dried spice jars you’ll have from the supermarket. So next time you finish off your dried basil etc, save the pot, wipe out with some dry kitchen towel and save as a method of storing your Everything spice mix.
The mix is made from a lot of pretty common store cupboard spices, so hopefully, you’ll already have the majority of these in your larder.
5 tsp garlic granules
4 tsp paprika
2 and 1/2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp Herbs de Provance
2 tsp celery salt
2tsp (caster) sugar – can use other sugars, but this is preferable as it is also the finest.
1 tsp dried coriander
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp all spice
1/4 tsp turmeric
Preparation time: 10mins
- Mix all ingredients together, blitz in a food processor or spice grinder. You could use a pestle and mortar here, but if you have a Nutri Bullet, use the grinder blade to whizz up this concoction.
- Store in an airtight container
- Use on nearly everything.
Like we said, this works brilliantly on roasties, chicken, red meat, fried onions, sprinkled on baked fish! But we will link to dedicated recipes below as we do them!
