If people with a typical diet think of vegetarians, they again and again reach the question of how to veggies season their food.

The answer is simple - they use herbs. Below you’ll find some examples of herbs and foods to use them for.

  • For flour dishes: cumin, aniseed, ginger, pepperwort, orange peel, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, mustard flour, almonds, coriander, nuts, cardamom.
  • For legumes: sage, mint, pine nut flour, and spruce and pine seeds.
  • For mushrooms: acorns, chestnuts, dill, spice, pepper, laurel leaves. 
  • For fruit: nutmeg, cranberries, lemon.
  • For roots and vegetables: dill, calamus, celery, thyme, paprika, curry, onion, garlic, chive, leontodon.
Don't think of these tips as rules. Always season your food according to taste. Use ground salt, celery salt or other flavored salts. Try raw cane sugar instead of usual sugar. Replace vinegar with lemon, cranberries, rhubarb, and mustard with horseradish.
