This no salt seasoning recipe is a tasty replacement for salt.
When my mom was sick, she couldn’t have salt. So I had to come up with some way to season her food without added salt.
I learned to combine spices in ways that helped. Mind you, they were never an exact replacement, but they sure did help.
This seasoning recipe was one she enjoyed.
What Can I Use Instead Of Salt To Season Food?
The truth is, salt is sort of a stand alone ingredient. It’s very difficult to replace. That being said, there are ways to come close. Typically, by adding much stronger herbs and spices to whatever you are cooking.
Is No Salt Seasoning Healthy?
It definitely is if you make it at home. I can’t vouch for the store-bought varieties because I’ve never used them. But if you make it at home, it’s a simple blend of spices. And spices are good for us!
