So simple, quick and inexpensive. Homemade Vegetable Sea Salts can add ‘zip’ and nutrition to your meals.
With about 10 minutes of prep time and 30 minutes of drying in the oven, almost any vegetable can be dehydrated and ground up to add to your favorite salt to enhance the nutrition, add a burst of flavor and plus: they just look pretty sprinkled on foods.
My latest variety is a dehydrated Red Bell Pepper, ground and mixed at a 50 X 50 ratio with some Himalayan Sea Salt.
If you’re worried about your salt intake, this is a great way to stretch your salt use while adding in the flavors and nutrients found in which ever veggies you dry out and grind up with your salts. Store them just like any other seasoning in a dry sealed container for months and months of uses.
Other ideas I have on my list to try are Lemon Pepper, Orange Peel Pepper, Basil Sea Salt, Broccoli Salt….you get the idea.
These homemade goodies can make a great, inexpensive gift for friends, family or someone you may not know what to give.
Find a cool container (this small jar was just a dollar!) and fill it up ♥
Any time you have some vegetables past their prime you can dry them out….grind them up in a coffee grinder and mix them into salt.
