The Best Fruit and Vegetable Seasonings
Many people have become so accustomed to familiar food and flavor combinations that they completely forget that there are many delicious ways to season even the most humble foods. For example, many vegetables are often just tossed with butter, seasoned with salt and pepper and served. Such a shame, when the flavor of most vegetables can be greatly enhanced by using a fresh perspective on seasoning.
While the number of vegetable and seasoning combinations are infinite, here are some suggestions to help you look at these staples in a fresh new way. Try any of these spices to complement the vegetable or fruit for which it is recommended. This way you can just choose which spices you like and stay away from those that you don't.
We always recommending seasoning with less spices rather than more as it is fairly easy to overwhelm your taste buds. Think of it this way - you can always add more but you can never take it back!
This list is a great reference whether you like to grill, roast or steam your vegetables.
Fruit has it even worse than vegetables when it comes to seasoning. Typically them may be tossed with a little sugar and served. Hopefully these suggestions will help you think beyond granulated sugar. Some may be familiar and others a surprise, but all of them sound delicious. No reason that fruits can't be a bit more on the savory side which also helps balance the natural sugars fond in fruits.
