This is a BBQ seasoning recipe that I have created myself, and personally, I think its perfect! If you’ve been redirected over from another recipe to learn how to make the Healthy Hearty Wholesome BBQ seasoning recipe, your in the right place! It uses blends of smoked paprika, garlic, mustard and pepper, with a hint of salt and of course a not so subtle sweetness that makes BBQ so moreish. Instead of sugar, this recipe uses sweetener making it perfect for all of your low calorie recipes.

This recipe uses a carefully selected blend of :

  • paprika
  • sweetener
  • garlic
  • onion
  • mustard
  • salt
  • pepper

Grab and old or empty herb jar and this recipe should fill it perfectly. Make sure you have washed out the jar really well so that you don’t taint the flavours. Mix together your seasonings in a bowl. Make a quick funnel from some scrap paper to make a funnel and pour the seasonings into the jar so its ready to be sprinkled whatever dish you like, its as easy as 1, 2, 3!

This seasoning will last for many months in a dry dark space like a cupboard but I guarantee you will use it up long before then!

In the future I plan to create many different ‘holy grail’ seasoning blends such as: Cajun seasoning, Chinese BBQ seasoning, Italian seasoning and fajita seasoning. Be sure to let me know what seasonings you love the most in the comments.
