Cajun herb-mix

  • 2 ts of garlic powder
  • 2,5 ts of powdered paprika (I used the smoked paprika)
  • 1 ts of union powder
  • 1 ts of grounded black pepper
  • 1 ts of cayenne pepper
  • 1,25 ts of dried oregano
  • 1,25 ts of dried thyme
  • 1 ts of chili powder

mix it all up and you have a beautiful Cajun like spice mix. Love it.

Paella herbs (home made)

The ingredients are simple, but be aware of some serious yellow fingers after this 😉

  • 4 parts of sweetened paprika powder
  • 4 parts of union powder
  • 2 parts of garlic powder
  • 2 parts of whole black pepper grains
  • 1 part of clove buds
  • 1 part of rosemary (dried)
  • 1 part of safran or kurkuma herbs. ( I used a mix, about half of both)

grill up the pepper grains and the clove buds slightly and put them in a grinder (I have an electric one, but a manual based mortar would work as well….), also include the dried rosemary and the safran wires.

Grind them down until a powder and add and stir in all other powders. There. You’re done. Easy, but very colouring, and strong in taste. Great mix for paella!
