Looking to spice-up your greens? Well, this blend – developed in collaboration with Guardian columnist Meera Sodha and Tenderstem® – is designed to boost your broccoli, cauliflower and shaved sprouts, transforming standard side dishes into something spectacular.
Simply cut your brassicas into florets or bite-sized pieces, toss in a little olive oil, sprinkle over a teaspoon of our Brassica Blend and a pinch of salt, then roast at 200C for 10 minutes. Or if you're stirfrying shaved sprouts then add a dash of Brassica Blend one minute before the end of cooking.
ALSO KNOWN AS: Broccoli Blend, Cauliflower Blend, Brussels Sprouts Blend
This Brassica Blend should be stored in the dark, airtight tin, to prevent it from drying out and to keep it as potent as possible.
Spice blends are a far purer way of adding flavour to dishes than sauces or salt-enhanced seasonings. Fennel and cumin have both historically been used as a digestive aid, chilli is great for the metabolism and Nigella Seeds are often referred to as a 'Miracle Herb' such are its wide-ranging therapeutic properties – making this spice blend a great ingredient to incorporate into your daily cooking.
