Origin

The name comes from a Latin word meaning to enliven and invigorate, this is a blend inspired by ancient Rome cookery flavours.

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.
