BBQ spice mix

Way back when I was given this recipe to put on shrimp but guess what, its great on everything. You can use it dry to make like a blackening spice or toss it and veggies or tofu with a little oil and grill or saute. I just keep a bottle around and sprinkle on all sorts of things. I really like it on sweet potatoes.

This recipe is good for about 2 blocks off large diced tofu as an example.

Makes about 2 ounces of dry mix


1 Tbs Mild chili powder

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp sugar- I use coconut sugar

1 tsp salt- I used himalayan pink this time

1/2 tsp dry mustard

1/2 tsp dried thyme

1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper

1/2 tsp curry powder

1/4 tsp cayenne.


1. Mix all together well and use or store in an airtight container. If using all of mixture use mix with 2 Tbs olive oil
