3 Essential Ground Spices for Your Collection

When it comes to ground spices, you can never have too many in your spice rack. There are a few spices that will work with just about every meal, however. Having these spice essentials on hand is the best way to season a wide variety of savoury dishes, from pasta to curries, soups, roasts, meats, chicken, seafood, fish, vegetable dishes, stews, and many others. Keep reading to find out which ground spices your spice rack needs.

Must-Have Ground Spices for Every Collection

Some of our favourite versatile ground spices include the following:

1/ Turmeric

With its distinctive yellow colour and subtle flavour, turmeric can be used to enhance any meal. It is loaded with health benefits, too. It can help with digestion, aid weight loss, reduce inflammation, and help to reduce the effect of stress on the body. It can be used to make golden lattes (a unique tea made with turmeric, honey, additional spices and milk), added to smoothies, and added to various other savoury meals from soups to curries.

2/ Coriander

Coriander is one of the most versatile seasonings out there. It is used in three forms - fresh leaf, whole seeds and ground seed powder. Each form has its own flavour profile. The ground version may be more subtle than the seeds and extremely different from the pungent leaves but it still has a lot of flavour. It can enhance various dishes, working well as part of a spice blend.

3/ Paprika

If you are looking for a bit of heat without the burn, paprika is a must-have. This spice is made from peppers, without the seeds. It has a mild spicy flavour that subtly enhances dishes without being overpowering. It can be added to spice mixes, used on its own for pastas, sauces and other dishes or even used as a seasoning along with salt and pepper.
