When a simple and natural blend can make a dish a true masterpiece, it is hard to resist its simplicity of it. In order to make a perfect BBQ meal, accurate seasoning is a must.
For starters, use herbal mixes, that suit veggies well, since it’s an irreplaceable part of the dish. Since the spice mix is rich & herbal (for example “Veggie star”), you can never go wrong with using it. Add it to your stews, soups, salads, side dishes, and/or meat. The ingredients make it extremely versatile, so this would make a great grilling start-up kit.
A true secret, that releases aromas of the spices- toasting them in a dry skillet over low heat.
This way you can achieve the best flavors your seasonings can bring you. You never know until you try, right?
A great dish always comes with compatible spices. Here are some side-dish pairings, you should keep in mind, while rock-starring in the kitchen: Potatoes + chives, dill, coriander, parsley, rosemary, thyme. Bread + garlic, onion, parsley, sage, thyme. Green vegetables + savory, chives, bay, rice vinegar, dill, basil, nutmeg. And we can’t forget the beans, rice, and other grains, that pair excellent with chilies, cumin seeds, garlic, saffron, mint & parsley.
Finally, know the difference between the varieties of salts you are using. While kosher salt goes with pretty much everything, table salt is far finer, which means a little could go a long way. Meals are often finished with coarse sea salt crystals, for an added crunch, but are not used in prepping, as it is too big to dissolve evenly in the cooking process.
