this was ok. Nothing special in my book, so maybe others would want to halve the recipe the first time they make it so as to not have a lot of spices go to waste if you don't really enjoy it.-15 Sep 2008

What is Blackened Seasoning?

Blackened seasoning is a spice blend that is typically used in Cajun Cookin’ and runs a bit spicy. It is very similar to either Cajun or Creole seasoning and it can be used in a variety of recipes. Tony’s Creole Seasoning used to be one of my favorite main go-to spices. But sadly that had to go, as it packs a whopping 350 mg of sodium per ¼ teaspoon. I had to look twice to make sure I was reading that right. Wow!

Turkey Chili Without Salt

With the holiday season fast approaching, here is a fantastic turkey recipe which is flavorful and the whole family can truly enjoy. This recipe will serve about 8 people, so if you have fewer persons then change the quantity of ingredients accordingly. Also, the seasoning and spice mixes, mentioned in this recipe, do contain very low quantities of sodium.

Ingredients
• 1 to 1 ⅓ pounds extra lean ground white turkey
• 1 large Portobello mushroom (sliced or chopped)
• 4 8-ounce cans of no salt added tomato sauce
• 1 12-ounce can of Del Monte diced tomatoes (50 mg per serving)
• ¼ large red onion
• ¼ green bell pepper
• ½ bag of Bird’s eye pepper mix
• 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
• 1 packet Williams Original chili seasoning
• 1 can of red kidney beans (rinsed and drained to remove sodium)
• ¼ tablespoon each, paprika, salt substitute, Tabasco sauce (eliminate, if you don’t like a kick)
• 2 tablespoons liquid smoke
• 1 tablespoon chili powder
• 2 tablespoons brown sugar (optional)

Procedure
Brown the turkey meat with peppers, onions, mushrooms, can of diced tomatoes and garlic till the tomatoes start to soften. Add the liquid smoke and cook till the turkey has turned white and is cooked. There should be no need to drain any grease since it is extra lean turkey meat. After the turkey is cooked, pour the packet of Williams seasoning and mix together. Add your other seasonings (chili powder, hot sauce, brown sugar and salt substitute). Also add your rinsed kidney beans and Birds Eye pepper mix to the mixture and begin adding your tomato sauce. Bring to a boil then reduce to low medium heat and let your chili simmer for at least 30 minutes. Enjoy this variation of turkey with homemade mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie.

Here the absence of salt during preparation was substituted by certain foods containing salts. Garlic and minced onion or onion paste are foods containing salts and hence can be used as a substitute for salt. These ingredients give the required salty taste to the preparation. Celery beets and spinach can also be included in your low sodium recipes. Macaroni, noodles, pasta, fresh beef, lamb and egg are some of the other no salt foods. The options are plenty, you just need to try out different combinations to get the desired taste. Don’t fret if your physician has asked you to go on a low sodium diet. Nature has gifted us plentifully to abide by the doctor’s advice, yet enjoy our food to the fullest.


Use in any recipes calling for a specific seasoning blend, like these 8 Easy Healthy Chicken Marinade Recipes.

Cajun Blend – on burgers, pork, salmon, chicken, and Cajun Sausage & Veggie Kabobs

Chili Blend – in soups/chili, on ground beef, sloppy joes, Whole30 Crockpot Chili

Jerk Blend – excellent on grilled pork, chicken, steak, and fish

Johnny’s Seasoning Salt Recipe

  • 1 cup salt
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 8 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 4 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 8 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons pepper

Measure all ingredients into a pint sized canning jar or other air-tight container. Put the lid on the container and shake to combine. Use as you would store-bought seasoning salt.

What I love about this seasoning salt is how much flavor it has. The smoked paprika really adds a lot of flavor to it.

Another added bonus is that it doesn’t contain any MSG! Great for people who are trying to avoid artificial additives and preservatives. If you love Johnny’s Seasoning Salt, then give this recipe a try!

Note: This recipe contains no MSG, but it does contain a lot of salt. So if you are watching your salt intake, use this seasoning sparingly.


The $10 Costco Item Every New Southern Cook Needs in Her Pantry

When it comes to our food (and everything else, for that matter), the South doesn&apost shy away from flavor. We&aposre the birthplace of Old Bay (Maryland is part of the South, like it or not), Tabasco (made on Avery Island, Louisiana, for 150 years), and Tony Chachere&aposs Original Creole Seasoning (another Louisiana favorite). We take our seasonings, marinades, and rubs seriously when it comes to seasoning, quantity is just as important as quality, no bones about it. And the easiest way to insult your Mama (besides forgetting to say "ma&aposam") is to salt her food before you take a bite. You best believe she made that Hoppin&apos John the way the good Lord intended—with lots of salt. Of course, as we know, it&aposs often healthier to skip the salt, but we&aposre not about to sacrifice flavor just to go easy on the sodium intake.

But good news! We&aposve recently discovered a no-salt seasoning that&aposs changing the game.

Costco, the land of inexpensive outerwear and $5 rotisserie chicken, is also home to one of our very favorite private labels, Kirkland Signature. From razors to pure vanilla extract, Kirkland Signature makes just about everything you could ever need or want, and we&aposre rarely disappointed. So we have a pretty good feeling about their Organic No-Salt Seasoning, which boasts "a blend of 21 organic spices and ingredients from around the world."

The Costco website recommends using the no-salt seasoning on burgers, steaks, ribs, chicken, and turkey but we&aposd imagine the seasoning, which includes garlic, carrot, bay leaves, cayenne pepper, and lemon and orange peels (to name a few), would taste pretty good sprinkled on just about anything. And because it&aposs sodium-free, you can shake, shake, shake with reckless abandon𠅊ll the flavor, no guilt.

Plus, it comes in a 14.5-oz. container for just $9.49. Quality and quantity. That&aposs our kind of seasoning.

How to Make a Flavorful Salt Substitute

  • Store. Either use the salt immediately or transfer to a container until ready to use.

2 Big Reasons Why You Might Want to Cut Back on Your Sodium Intake

Sodium can be a funny thing. Some people should be including more of it in their diets, while other people are better off by reducing their sodium intake. Here are a few reasons why you might want to consider cutting back on sodium:

  • Hypertension. High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, can be exacerbated by sodium. Left unchecked, hypertension is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. (1)
  • High risk categories. Studies have shown that certain demographics (individuals aged 51 or older, and individuals with diabetes, chronic kidney issues, or hypertension) are at an increased risk of heart disease. If you’re 51 or older with any of the aforementioned conditions, then you should speak to your family doctor about your sodium intake. (2)

Are No-Salt Seasoning Mixes Bland?

It will only take one quick taste of this homemade seasoning blend to be able to tell that it’s anything but bland tasting. With that being said, if you’re looking to make it even more flavorful, here are a couple of quick tips you can try:

  • Spice it up. Try adding even spicier ingredients like red pepper flakes, ground cumin, or turmeric powder in if you want to give your seasoning more of a spicy kick.
  • Don’t be afraid to incorporate fresh herbs. Adding a bit of fresh cilantro, parsley, dill, or even mint can have a dramatic impact on the taste of your seasoning mix.
  • Be generous with your dry rub. Don’t skimp! Coat every nook and cranny, taking into account that during cooking, some might rub off due to moisture.

How Long Will This Spice Mix Stay Fresh?

One of the best things about making your own homemade spice mixes is the fact that they have a lot of staying power as far as shelf life goes. Most ground spices will keep for between 2-3 years, so you can reasonably expect this salt substitute to last for the same amount of time.

As for storing it, you can simply keep it in a mason jar or some other type of airtight container and then keep it stored in your kitchen pantry.


No-Salt Seasoning “Salt”

Mix everything together. Place in a small shaker or container.

Use with meats and vegetables.
