A luscious and savoury vegetable seasoning blend. Paying homage to Ancient Roman cookery that celebrated the eating of vegetables, it was and still is understood that eating vegetables may help lower the risk of various health problems. A diet high in vegetables can also protect against certain types of cancers. Seasoning vegetables with this delectable blend and making it a part of a healthy diet can add a distinct flavour profile. Try a pinch with smashed avocado on toast or 2 tsp for a whole roast chicken.
Origin
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.
Taste
A smoky base with a mild peppery heat.
Scent
Smoky, lightly spiced with mild citrusy base notes.
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.

Storage
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.
