Homemade Spice Mixes

Hey everyone. Recently on my Instagram, I shared a couple of spice mixes that I love to keep around my busy kitchen. Feeding a family of 6 plant-based food usually always has me running out of something. That's where my spice mixes really pay off. I can "fudge" specific ingredients with a good spice mix, many times creating something even better! 

That got me to thinking about the times that I ran out of specific spice mixes and had to create some of my own from what I had around. Not everyone knows how to season for a spicy dish or create taco seasoning off the top of their head.

I want to share with everyone a couple of my homemade spice mixes that not only save money but I think taste even better than store bought. These are just bases so get creative! 

Homemade Cajun Seasoning 

1 small mason jar with lid

3 Tablespoons Paprika 

2 Tablespoons Salt

2 Tablespoons Garlic Powder

2 Tablespoons Black Pepper (or one of black and one of white or rainbow)

1 Tablespoon Onion powder

1 Tablespoon dried Oregano

1 Tablespoon Cayenne

1/2 Tablespoon dried Thyme

Put all ingredients in jar.

Close lid super tight!
