I´m looking for more flavor in my low salt diet, what can I use?

Cajun Mix

5 Tablespoons paprika
2 Tablespoons granulated garlic
2 Tablespoons dried onion flakes
1&1/2 Teaspoons dried oregano
1&1/2 Teaspoons dried basil
1 Teaspoon cayenne powder
1&1/2 Teaspoons ground black pepper

Mix well. As you can see this is a no-salt recipe,
but salt may be added, of course, for flavoring.

Use for grilling meats, hearty fish such as swordfish,
tuna or salmon, or add to sour cream, yogurt, or mayonnaise
to make a spicy dip for chips or vegetables.

   
Which herbs should I grow?

NoSalt Salt

Here's a good recipe for a salt substitute.
It does use kelp, which has trace amounts of sodium
chloride, much less than table salt.

3 Tablespoons dried basil
2 Tablespoons dried savory
2 Tablespoons celery seed
1 & 1/2 Tablespoons dried sage
1 Tablespoon dried thyme
1 Teaspoon powdered kelp (obtained at most health food stores)
1 Tablespoon dried marjoram

Powder the herbs in a grinder or blender. Store in
airtight container away from heat and light.

Use in soups, stews, eggs, meats, any recipes to
replace salt.

   
Does Basil really add flavor to tomatoes in a garden?

Homemade Basil Pesto

Make your own pesto at home and taste the true flavor
of this easy and delicious mix.

4 cups fresh basil leaves
4 - 6 cloves garlic
3/4 cup toasted pine nuts
1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves
1 Teaspoon salt (optional)
1 cup olive oil
3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Place all ingredients except the oil and cheese in
a blender or food processor. Slowly, while blender or
processor is running, add the oil and process or blend
to a chunky paste. Do not overblend; you want this
to be chunky, not smooth. Add more oil if needed. Fold
in the cheese and store this up to a week in the
refrigerator, or for several months in the freezer, in
an airtight container.

Use as a spread on tomato halves or slices, and broil.
Mix with oil and vinegar for an instant and tasty salad dressing.
Mix with bread crumbs to use as a filling for chicken.
Stuff mushrooms with the bread crumb mixture.
Serve over pasta.

as opposed to mixes that may have sat for years at
the market.

Why read labels?

* Please Read First

These are not the only blends in this category that
use no salt; but they are the only ones created solely
to be used to replace salt in a recipe.

These recipes will need to be ground finely, so that
the mix can be shaken through either small or wide-holed
shakers/jars. Use a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle
if your arms need a workout.

Please Note! If you are on a No Salt Diet, as opposed to a Low Salt Diet, a few of these
recipes use sea vegetables that contain sodium chloride.
The amount of sodium chloride in the total recipe is
much less than regular table or sea salt, and it also
holds many valuable trace minerals the body needs.
