Just made a fresh batch of my Everything Bagel spice blend. Next time you bake low-carb bagels, baguettes or dinner rolls, try my mock version of this popular spice/seed blend. It’s great on top of my low-carb dinner rolls https://wordpress.com/post/buttoni.wordpress.com/25406 or sprinkled atop your favorite low-carb loaf breads. Though not quite the same, it’s real close to the taste of the well-known proprietary blend, considering I’m just guessing on the amounts of each spice/seed that appear in the ingredients listed on the commercial spice bottles. It works for me anyway. If you’d like to try a more aromatic blend, you might also like to try my 8-Seed Blend sometime! It’s got a wider variety of spices and is very good in its own right.
3 T. dried minced onion flakes
2 T. dried minced garlic granules (I find at Sam’s)
3 T. white sesame seeds
4 T. toasted white sesame seed
1 T. coarse black pepper
1 tsp. sea salt (I used Himalayan pink)
4 T. black sesame seeds (I order on-line)
DIRECTIONS: In your broiler, toast the 4 T. sesame seeds on a small baking sheet until lightly browned. Please do not get distracted as they can burn in the blink of an eye! Been there myself a time or two. Remove and cool. Pour them onto a paper plate. Measure out remaining ingredients and stir well. Fold the paper plate to pour them up into an awaiting lidded jar. I always keep my old spice jars when emptied as they are so convenient to have when I make a new homemade spice blend such as this one. This blend will keep for months, as the only real perishable thing in the blend are the sesame seeds, with their high oil content. As with all spices, store in a dark cabinet or closed spice rack.
