Oftentimes we think that less salt equals less flavor. With the right seasonings, however, it’s actually possible to increase flavor without salt. Before adding salt to your meal, try some of these flavor-enhancing, salt substitutes.

 

Vinegar:

Not only can vinegar be a salt substitute, but it provides more flavor and is available in many different varieties. Vinegar also is a key ingredient in oil-free, plant-based salad dressings.

 

Garlic, Pepper, Lemon, or Lime Juice:

Using these flavorings together, or individually, adds significant flavor to a dish and decreases the need for salt. Fresh or dried herbs, like cilantro, basil, thyme, and parsley, among others, are also useful as flavor enhancers.  

 

Kelp Granules:

This sea vegetable brings out the flavor in dishes and is full of B vitamins.  

 

Nutritional Yeast:

Nutritional yeast adds a “cheesy” or nutty flavor to dishes and can offset the need for more salt.

 

If you want something ready made, try Benson’s Table Tasty, which is a popular salt replacer, made from dehydrated lemon peel.

From Plants to Politics

I try not to be overly dramatic in my writing, but I think most of us would agree we live in troubled times. We might define these troubles differently, but most of us have this sense. Most distressing in my view, however, are not the actual problems we face, but our inability to work together to find their solutions.
