Introducing Vegeto - Great Taste Award winner - 2023. Vegeto is a smokey all-purpose seasoning mix, with a whisper of bitterness from celery salt, and a hint of heat from ground chilli flakes. All natural, low sodium and vegan. This heritage spice mix pays homage to the ancient Romans' love of vegetables and pulses - inspired by the oldest collection of Roman cookery recipes by Marcus Gavius Apicius. 

Endless culinary adventures With highlights of garlic, paprika and basil, Vegeto is a perfect way to add flavour to roast vegetables, mashed potato, soups and salads. Try a pinch over smashed avocado on toast, or 2 tsp for a roast chicken marinade with some olive oil. 

At Cameler Spice Co., we take pride in milling and blending our spices in-house. We do our utmost to use the freshest cooking spices within one year from field to jar. Our main objective is to minimize our supply chain by sourcing ingredients directly from regenerative farms. Indulge in the rich flavours of Vegeto for up to two years, meticulously handwritten on the lid for a personal touch.

The name comes from a Latin word meaning to enliven and invigorate, this is a blend inspired by ancient Rome cookery flavours. Many Romans would have eaten a largely vegetarian diet by default with osteological discoveries showing gladiators largely eating vegetables, grains and pulses. The great Roman gourmet, Marcus Gavius Apicius, who compiled what is the only surviving cookbook of the Roman empire, De Re Coquinaria (The Art of Cooking), lists numerous recipes that encompasses the flavours found in this blend.

How to use
With a base smokiness to the blend and a mild heat, use 1-2 teaspoons on roasted or stir-fry vegetables by adding before, during or after cooking. Adding it to a good quality olive oil and balsamic vinegar would also make a beautifully seasoned salad dressing. Vegetō is a perfect match for beans on toast, lentil-based dishes and all things vegetarian, like vegetable pizza. Try it on a roast vegetable tart with a puff pastry base. It will add that extra “je ne sai quoi” to your lunch or dinner options, even with plenty of enjoyment for all those cold left overs.

Some of our blends will be gluten free, but it is important to note that some spices and herbs naturally contain gluten.

It is also important to note that these have been packaged in a facility that handles, stores, and processes tree nuts and celery. This product may contain traces of celery, gluten, mustard, sesame, soy and nuts.

Always store in a dry place. A pantry, press or cupboard will suffice. We have made that easy by housing our blends in dark amber mason jars under an aluminium lid. Aluminium reflects both heat and light, making it the perfect material for food preservation under its closing. Spice and herb blends typically have a use by date, in our case, 24 months from manufacture.
