Create your own herb mix
There are herb mixes in various flavours and for countless dishes. Putting together a herb mix can sometimes take quite some time, so in some cases ready-made is the easiest option. Especially if you are specifically looking for an organic mix of herbs.
Pre-packaged jars of herb mixes in the supermarket are by no means always of organic origin. You can put together the herbs yourself, or order an organic mix from Vehgro.
Mix to suit your tasteDo you make your own mix? Then you can adjust it to your taste. Looking for the perfect combination of curry herbs or burrito herbs? It is handy if you know exactly what has to go in it, but of course you can also let your own taste prevail and choose to add something extra or leave something out. Your herb mix is your party, so live it up.
What is bruschetta?What exactly is bruschetta? The dish consists of grilled bread (multigrain or white), which has been rubbed with garlic and drizzled with olive oil, plus salt and pepper.

What's in a burrito seasoning mix?As with any herb mix, it is important for the burrito herb mix that all herbs are measured correctly. This is something you can be sure of at Vehgro: we know better than anyone that a mix that is not properly measured is not worth the effort. In a good burrito mix, you need a number of spices, including chilli powder and cayenne pepper. Mixing them well is recommended.
