Here is a multi-purpose spice rub that can be used for anything from oven fries, vegetable dishes, to any kind of meat that you can think of. I think it's really useful to make your own spice mix and keep it in a jar. All you need is a generous sprinkle and magically dinner tastes wonderful. This spice mix can keep up to 6 months in a jar.

Yields: around 1/4 cup

  • 2 tbsp smoked sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp coarse salt

Take a spice jar and add in all of the spices listed. Pop the lid back on and give it a good shake, and it's ready to use.
