Recently I have begun cooking more Mediterranean-style food at home, and I have been using Cavender’s Greek Seasoning as a primary flavoring ingredient. Cavender’s Greek Seasoning is a balanced blend of 13 ingredients that are designed to evoke the flavors and aromas of Mediterranean food. I have found that Cavender’s Greek Seasoning is often the only seasoning ingredient I need to make a simple yet flavorful meal.
One of my favorite dishes I made was a slow-cooker lamb stew. Lamb is a traditional Mediterranean meat, and it occurred to me that it would make a delicious lamb and root vegetable stew when combined with vegetable stock and some Cavender’s Greek Seasoning. Although the root vegetables themselves, such as parsnips, turnips, and rutabagas, are quite flavorful, the Cavender’s Greek Seasoning complemented the flavor of the vegetables without overpowering their subtlety of flavor. Although I traditionally use a variety of herbs and spices in my slow-cooker stews, I found that no additional seasoning was necessary once I found the proper amount of Cavender’s Greek Seasoning to use so as not to have a stew that ended too salty or too bland.
It is also possible to use Cavender’s Greek Seasoning as a dry rub on lamb, beef, or chicken directly. The result is a flavorful meat that is simple to prepare by grilling or broiling. Care must be taken to avoid using too much of the Cavender’s Greek Seasoning, as it is quite salty and it is verry easy to use too much. If you use Cavender’s Seasoning as a dry rub, it is better to err on the conservative side unless you enjoy your meats exceptionally salty. Although you should avoid using too much of the Cavender’s Greek Seasoning, the proper amount will go a long way to making a flavorful meat that is recognizably Mediterranean in style.
By no means is Cavender’s Greek Seasoning restricted to meats, however. You can use Cavender’s Greek Seasoning to flavor vegetables of all sorts, and I have even tried using it to lightly season freshly-popped popcorn to make some Greek-style popcorn. The key to cooking with a ready-made spice such as Cavender’s Greek Seasoning is variety and innovation. If you find that you like the taste of Cavender’s Greek seasoning, you should experiment freely with new recipes and new uses for the blend. You may surprise yourself with how easy it is to invent new and delicious recipes when using a high-quality and flavorful seasoning mix such as Cavender’s Greek Seasoning.
In conclusion, Cavender’s Greek Seasoning makes it easy to prepare Mediterranean-style food at home. It can be used on meats, vegetables, and in many types of dishes. You should take care not to use too much due to its high salt content. But if you succeed in finding the proper quantity balance, Cavender’s Greek Seasoning can be a versatile addition to your home Mediterranean cuisine.
