Take a shortcut this Easter with Little’s Cuisine
A few years ago, I went to dinner at a friend’s house, where she served a delicious dip that had such complex flavor, yet she swore it was a simple (but top secret) family recipe. She’s a great cook, but she’s never been the type to make all her food completely from scratch (she’s a very busy person) so I had a hunch she was using a shortcut and just didn’t want to tell me. Some people mistake me for a foodie because I write a food blog, but I love all kinds of food and I’m definitely not a food snob! I not only appreciate shortcuts, I love using them regularly. I mean, this blog is called SIMPLY Gluten Free, after all!
So, when I’m looking for complex flavor that’s as simple as opening a packet and mixing it into a dish, I use one of my favorite shortcuts: Little’s Cuisine seasonings.
Little’s Cuisine may be a great shortcut for cooks, but the company takes no shortcuts when it comes to quality of product. For one, it’s gluten free, which is not always the case with spice mixes. And secondly, it contains no fillers, flours, or artificial additives. Instead, it’s made with real ingredients that deliver a robust flavor for all sorts of dishes.
The most recent seasoning I’ve fallen in love with is their Chili Lime Seasoning Blend. This is great on chicken, salmon, potatoes, vegetables, mixed with sour cream for a zesty sauce for tacos, and so much more. It’s a versatile blend that you can keep on hand for last minute guests or when you need to whip up something tasty in a hurry.
Since Easter is right around the corner, I figure you may be in need for some quick and simple ideas for side dishes. Give this Roasted Chili Lime Carrots recipe from Little’s Cuisine a try, using their delicious Chili Lime Seasoning Blend and save some time and hassle in the kitchen.
- 1 pound baby carrots
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 lime juiced
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon Little’s Cuisine Chili Lime Seasoning Blend
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Clean and trim the carrots and pat dry with a towel. If using thicker baby carrots, slice them in half lengthwise.
In a bowl, toss carrots with olive oil, lime juice, honey, and Chili Lime Seasoning Blend and transfer to a nonstick baking sheet.
Roast carrots for about 20 minutes, depending on size, or until tender. Transfer to a serving plate and serve hot.
