They’re a great way to add flavour to simple ingredients
Dried lentils, split peas and beans are really cheap and keep for ages. Delicious added to soups stews and casseroles (note that some need to be soaked first).
Great for added zing in salads and baked goods. These are one to enjoy only occasionally, as they are quite a concentrated source of sugar, and the stickiness is bad for teeth.
Garlic and onion powder
These deliver a powerful flavour punch and are especially good in vegetarian dishes to give a big “meaty” flavour
These pops of flavour are great in salads, pasta sauces and sandwiches and are a lovely addition to cheese boards.
