SO HOW'D IT GO?

This is definitely quick. I used 2 tsp. of an Italian seasoning blend in place of the Spike, but will probably use 1.5 tsp. if I make it again. I pureed it and served it over veggie pasta.

Two cans or two cups? This prepares a large amount then! Enough work leftovers for a week!

This is lovelyy.  I used red split lentils and boiled them for 10 minutes beforehand; plus bouillon powder in place of spike.

thanks!

Hi,
Spike! is a "Gourmet Natural Seasoning" that has just about every kind of spice on the planet in it... to name just a few, sea salt, toasted onion, orange powder, celery leaf powder, garlic powder, dill, kelp, Indian curry, and a lot more. I'm sure if you have a basic all=-purpose seasoning it would do the same thing. I use Spike! because it's got a lot of kick and personality. You can find it at the "House of Nutrition" web-site if you want to try it.

Enjoy!
