Spice Blend: Super-Charged

Prep: 0 min
Cook: 5 min
Total: 5 min
Servings: N/A

Similar to Dr. Greger's Special Spice Blend from The How Not to Die Cookbook, this super-charged spice blend boasts the added benefits of cumin, black cumin (nigella seeds), ginger, and black pepper. I always have this seasoning blend on hand to boost flavors or to use in place of salt.
