Creole Seasoning

Let your imagination run wild with this creole seasoning – don’t feel limited by its traditional uses!

I’ll be using this in some future recipes, but in case you’re feeling a bit stumped in the meantime, this can be used as a dry rub, to flavour soups and various other dishes (even scrambled tofu!) and to make sauces. The most recent sauce I made with this included tomato paste, fresh chopped tomatoes, balsamic vinegar and water blended together with some of the seasoning. It was an impressive, quick throw together, but unfortunately I don’t have any quantities for you.

The vegetable “holy trinity” of creole cuisine is considered to be onion, capsicum (bell pepper) and celery – those veggies are a good place to start with this if you’re feeling unsure.
