A copycat Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning Blend you can use everyday on literally everything (except maybe ice cream)
This copycat Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning Blend is so good, you will probably want to double or triple the recipe! So I LOVE the everyday seasoning blend from Trader Joe’s. It’s something I used to always have on hand but there is a note on the bottle not to grind over steaming pots, but I would always end up doing that. I couldn’t help it! And so it would always end up getting clogged and I could never get the last bit out. This bothered me so I set out to make my own version of their everyday seasoning blend and here we are. Let’s make it!
Ingredients for Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning
- Garlic powder
- Mustard seed
- Crushed red pepper flakes
- Ground coriander
And for our visual learners:
As you might expect from something called everyday seasoning, the ingredients are pretty basic. You might even have most if not all of these spices already in your cupboard.
How to make trader joes everyday seasoning blend
Umm, put all the spices in a jar and shake. It feels weird not to have more to say but its just that easy.
But a note on grinding spices
You will most likely need to grind the mustard seed. Mustard seed is different than dry or powdered mustard so beware. You can either use a spice grinder or a mortar and pestle to grind it. The rest of the spices are easy to find in an already ground state, enabling you to make this in a flash!
The kind you buy at Trader Joe’s has mostly whole spices, which is why it comes in a grinder. Feel free to use whole versions of these spices wherever possible and grind to your liking. I love the ease of just dumping (most) all of the spices into a jar.
Where to Use it
You can literally use this seasoning blend EVERYDAY on EVERYTHING. Some of my favorite uses include:
- Roasted or grilled veggies
- Fish (I especially love it on salmon with a tiny drizzle of honey)
- Hash browns
- Homemade croutons
- Homemade pizza crust
This would also make a nice homemade gift for the foodies in your life! Just buy some small glass jars and triple or quadruple the recipe depending on how much you need.
