Ten Super Spice Tips

Contributed by: News Canada

(NC) - Spices and herbs are extremely rich in antioxidants, with levels comparable to many fruits and vegetables.

CINNAMON

Adding a touch of cinnamon to fruits, desserts and yogurt will create a delightful flavour and may reduce the temptation for added sugar.

Ten Super Spice Tips
GINGER

Sprinkle into fruit juices or smoothies for an added kick.

OREGANO

For a twist on the typical grilled cheese, prepare sandwich with sliced mozzarella cheese, sliced tomato and 1/4 teaspoon oregano leaves.

CAYENNE PEPPER

Sprinkle a pinch of ground cayenne or chilli pepper flakes into pasta sauces to add heat.

PAPRIKA

Sprinkle hummus, guacamole or baked potatoes with paprika.

ROSEMARY

Rosemary enhances the flavour of cooked vegetables, so sprinkle over boiled or roast potatoes, peas or green beans for added flavour.

PARSLEY

Add to breadcrumbs and cheddar for a delicious stuffing for mushrooms.

THYME

Wake up your taste buds with Herbed Scrambled Eggs. Beat 1/8 teaspoon thyme leaves into 2 eggs before scrambling.

BASIL

For an instant pesto, combine 2 tbsp of McCormick gourmet basil, 1 tbsp of grated Parmesan, 1 tbsp of pine nuts and 3 tbsp of olive oil in a food processer and blend until smooth.

YELLOW CURRY

For a new twist to chicken salad, add a dash of curry powder along with nuts, fruit, or chopped apples.
