Vegetable Seasoning Recipe - An Easy-to-Make
Mix For Steamed, Roasted and Boiled Veg

Whilst it's convenient to buy a commercial blend, making a vegetable seasoning recipe yourself is super easy! And the flavours and aromas that you'll add to your steamed, roasted or boiled veg will be far better and healthier as you don't have the "extra" ingredients you find in shop-bought mixes.

Note: I use whole peppercorns and cumin which I then grind for this recipe. If you don't happen to have whole, just use pre-ground cumin and pepper instead and reduce the amounts by half. So instead of 2 tablespoons of cumin seeds you use 1 tablespoon of ground cumin. Reduce the peppercorns likewise.
