Baking Keto’s Cajun Seasoning Blend

Baking Keto's Cajun Seasoning Blend

We've tried several brands of cajun seasoning blends and none of them were quite right for our taste or some used regular salt; where we prefer sea salt. So, after a lot of trial and error of proportions and ingredients we came up with, what we feel, is an amazing blend of flavors that can be used for a lot of different dishes but especially those where you hope to achieve a Cajun taste.

Steamed Spinach

Steamed Spinach

The directions for this recipe come from a 1930s Westinghouse oven manual. When purchasing your spinach, be sure to select young, fresh spinach. The cooking time will be longer with older spinach. This dish is lovely tossed with a touch of sea salt and organic, grass-fed butter and served with a lemon slice.
