I need my food to be seasoned well… us Puerto Ricans love savory dishes. Not to be confused with spicy. We do not typically use chilies or hot spicy peppers in our cooking, but we do season our food well with adobo – a mixture of spices, herbs and salt that give Puerto Rican food is unique flair.
I mentioned you how to make your own adobo mixture here… but if you’re too lazy ( like I have been known to be) or you feel you want to try things before investing in making your own mix, there are a few natural and vegetarian alternatives you can try from your local health food store.
Both Spike and Herbamare can be found in your local health food… these are made from natural ingredients, sea salt and without adding any chemical preservatives. I have been using both for a number of years now. I use them to season stews, rices, mushrooms, veggie burgers, etc. Give these seasonings a try… you’ll see how your food will bring you even more enjoyment… Bon Appétit!!!
