Perhaps you’ve noticed that “Everything Bagel Seasoning” seems to be the hot spice blend of the moment. People are literally putting it on All.The.Things… and I’m not any different. It was love at first taste for me too!
My addiction to Everything Bagel Started out buying THIS version but quickly I noticed that it’s so incredibly salty! Like WAAAAY too much salt. Ouch.
Which lead me to creating my own, even better, less salty version!
But wait, I’m not saying salt is bad, ok processed salt we should avoid, but naturally derived sea salts are extremely beneficial and we shouldn’t fear using sea salt liberally. I’m just talking about the too-salty flavor of THIS store bought blend. K?
Confused about salt and if it’s truly healthy? I recommend reading THIS amazing book before you shy away from salt.
Feel free to use this spice combination as in inspiration to create your own unique blend which suits your tastes perfectly – or using what ingredients you already have on hand.
I do feel it’s necessary to use minced dried onion and garlic and NOT granulated or powdered versions. You want your Everything Bagel Seasoning to be chunky, not powdery.
