I love cooking and when I cook I like to use herbs and seasonings to make my food taste great. When I received some awesome seasonings from Spike Gourmet, I got excited at all the dishes I could make with them. They sent me ten tantalizing different varieties of their gourmet seasonings. I love that some of the seasonings are low salt and salt free. Check out what they sent me.

The first seasoning I used was Vegit® Magic I made a bowl of popcorn and sprinkled on this low sodium seasoning. I remember a health food store that I went to many years ago and they sold popcorn with this seasoning. I just had to experience this memory again of this yummy popcorn. My popcorn tasted awesome. I can also see the Vege- Sal® Magic or Original Magic adding a great taste to popcorn.
I was making baked beans in my slow cooker for dinner, so I decided to use Onion Magic and Garlic Magic in my recipe. I was already using tomato juice and barbecue sauce so I did not want to add any additional sodium to my baked beans. I just wanted to add some extra flavor to my baked beans as I was using plain barbecue sauce. The onion and garlic made my baked beans sing with flavor. The Onion Magic is a great way to add onion flavor to a dish when you don't have a onion or when you have picky eaters who don't like onion pieces in their food.
I will use the 5 Herb Magic in dishes like fish, pizza and any recipes that call for basil, oregano, marjoram, thyme, and rosemary. This spice just smells awesome. When I make spicy Mexican dishes like chili, enchiladas,or breakfast burritos I will use the Hot 'n Spicy Magic to add some heat to those dishes. My husband used this one on his mac and cheese last night and said it gave his food a nice kick of heat. I can see the Lemon Pepper Magic being awesome on my veggies or fish. When I need to cook without salt for friends who are are low sodium diets, the Salt Free Magic will be a good seasoning. I can also add this seasoning to foods like soup and cottage cheese for extra flavor as they are already loaded with sodium. I will be adding great flavor to my cooking with these wonderful seasonings from Spike Gourmet. I can't wait to try them all when I am cooking.
The other day my son was adding spices to our store bought pizza and he opened up the Garlic Magic to sprinkle on the pizza. He said to me "wow that is some strong garlic!" I told him that is Garlic Magic is so much fresher than the garlic powder we had been using. He also put 5 Herb Magic on the pizza and it gave our pizza a wonderful taste with the sweet basil and oregano.
Check out Spike Gourmet on their Facebook page for more information and other great recipes. There is a recipe for Avocado Frittata with Cotija and Mozzarella Cheese that I can't wait to create. I just need to buy the ingredients.
