Spice Blend, tastes like Barbecue Shapes

 Katrina Meynink is one of my favourite recipes developers. I never miss one of her recipes in Goof Food as they are inspirational.  I also have her cook book.  I have adapted this recipe to TMX. I also have made the basic Spice Mix for storage and add the Parmesan just before use. I have doubled the spice mix as I have added it to home made Trail mix  and roasted, and on roast pumpkin. I have also topped bread rolls with it. 


2 teaspoons sumac

2 teaspoons onion powder

3 teaspoons sweet smoked paprika

3 teaspoons of chipotle powder ( I used 1 teaspoon of chilli flakes)

3 teaspoons brown sugar

5 tablespoons of Italian spice mix ( I used 1/2 this amount of Tuscan mix as this is what I had)

8 tablespoons of finely grated Parmesan. I keep this separate. 

Extra, if available, 1 tablespoon of dehydrated tomato powder. 


Mix all the spices together, in TMX , blender etc. NOT THE PARMESAN. Set aside in a lidded container. 

Grate the Parmesan and store in a glass container in freezer. 

1/8 th of the spice mix, plus 1 tablespoon of Parmesan is I mix.  Mix the spice mixture with the Parmesan. 


The original recipe was for Roast potatoes with spice  mix.  Delicious.

I have added the spice mix without the Parmesan to roasted nuts, first sprayed with a little oil.
