Looking to spice up your mealtimes? Dried herbs and spices add a ton of flavor to any meal. They are also easy to store, which means you can always have them on hand. Here are two examples of ways to incorporate dried herbs and spices into your next meal!
Start with a raw chicken breast, thigh, or leg. Toss it in olive or vegetable oil. Sprinkle any of the herbs below on the chicken. Bake or grill the chicken until the internal temperature is 165° Fahrenheit. Enjoy!
Looking for a delicious meatless meal? Black beans are an excellent plant-based alternative to meat. Start by either:
With your beans ready to cook, add them to a stove pot to start heating them up. Add ground cumin or garlic powder (or both!) for savory beans. Add red pepper flakes if you want some heat in your beans!
Looking for more ideas? Try using dried oregano with this white bean and sausage ragu or this homemade veggie pizza. Try cumin with our black bean & quinoa bowl or garlic powder with our Italian eggplant sliders!
