I toasted a piece of Fabulous Flats™ Whole-Grain Tandoori Naan, slathered some Tribe Lemon Hummus on it, then sprinkled over just a bit of Smoky Black T-Dust to play up the “grilled” flavor of the charred bits on the (really good for prepackaged) naan.
I’m also drinking a V-8, and it occurs to me this would be good over that instead of just pepper… or on tomato soup… or on a bloody mary…
I was right! A couple sprinkles makes a bowl of (store-bought) tomato soup much better. It added a surprising amount of depth to the soup, which seemed a bit too sweet at first. It doesn’t really make it taste smoky, just more rounded out. I guess it’s kind of like the difference between plain tomatoes and “fire roasted” ones…?
Guess what – It’s good on popcorn too! I was pouring a mini bag of microwave butter popcorn into a bowl, but it didn’t all fit. I decided to add 1 shake of Smoky Black T dust to the large handful (about 20 pcs) that was left in the bag just to try it. I liked it enough that when I went back to eating the plain bowl it felt boring, so I ended up shaking some over it too (About 4 shakes). Use sparingly though because the “campfire” scent/flavor is strong. You can always add more!
I suspect the chili rooibos T dust might be better on popcorn, but I didn’t buy that one, or the green. I will probably cave soon though!
Mashed up 1/2 an avocado with lime juice, salt, pepper, and a dash of this, for a healthy dip/spread. GOod on crackers, chips, cucumber slices or in place of mayo on a sandwich.
I think this would be great sprinkled over store-bought (or homemade!) guacamole or salsa to add a slight smokiness and depth!
Can’t drink V-8 without it anymore!
A dash of this makes low sodium V-8 much more flavorful!
