What is the one spice/herb in your cupboard that you reach for most often when cooking? (Salt is NOT a spice/herb)

I could not live without the holy trinity of garlic, ginger and chilli.

Does chili powder count?

Absolutely

It's a too close to call between black pepper and minced garlic.

I end up using a chili powder blend the most.

Curry

Garlic powder and onion powder.
They are tied.

Pepper

Black/ white pepper is a must!

Lemon pepper.

@Storybook I use lemon pepper for fish a LOT. I also enjoy it on sauteed spinach, but just a dash!!

@Storybook You got me thinking - it's awesome on strong flavored veggies in general like asparagus. Experiment as it can overpower weaker flavors! 😛

@poetdi56 Mmmmmm.....I like the idea of lemon pepper on spinach.

Oh, yes! On salmon it's amazingly good.

@Donotbelieve On salmon it's da bomb!!!!

@Storybook I use it on fish, chicken, vegetables, and potatoes. Gives wonderful flavor without overpowering. Sometimes I don't need anything else.

Only one? In that case, it's garlic powder.

Garlic is my first choice as well, usually fresh, but I started using garlic powder when my daughter was young and suspicious of anything in her food. Onion powder as well. They season without leaving a trace to be found. 🙂

Roasted garlic.

Brown Sugar, Paprika, chili powder, cumin, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, mustard powder, salt and pepper - There's your BBQ rub.

Oregano. I chop fresh garlic

black pepper.

I almost wrote that! Then I guessed it wouldn't fit the bill. But, I do use it more than any other seasoning, not including salt.

@BlueWave gotta put the pepper to it!

3

Cumin or curry

3

I can't say one becuase I use a combo a lot.

Oregano, basil, parsley, garlic, onion.
I seen to put these 5 in almost everything. Meatloaf, breading, even my pancake batter.

Angus Level 5 July 13, 2018

Pancake batter? Please tell me you don't put syrup on herb and spice pancakes.

@BlueWave
Nope, just a little butter.

3

Basil and garlic

3

I use a variety of distinct combinations of about 14 spices and seasonings depending on what I'm cooking but the ones that almost always crop up are:

Garlic
White/Black/Cayenne Pepper
Paprika
Cooking sherry

3

Cinnamon.
