SPIKE® MAGIC! Seasonings Review, Recipe & Reader Giveaway

SPIKE® MAGIC! Seasonings make it easy to season your favorite recipes. Created by world-renowned pioneer nutritionist, author and speaker GAYELORD HAUSER in his beautiful test kitchen in Taormina, Sicily, the line now includes 10 varieties.

The original Spike Original Magic! is comprised of 39 different herbs, spices and vegetables all lovingly blended with just the right amount of salt. Sprinkle it on salads, meats, poultry, fish, eggs, cottage cheese, pizza, popcorn, stews, dressings – just about anything. And it’s a natural product. Unlike many seasonings it contains to chemical free flowing agents. (Which means you need to keep it in a cool, dry place – but more than worth the effort to keep it natural!)

Other varieties include Hot’n Spicy, Garlic, 5 Herb, and more. There is even Spike ® Salt-Free Magic! that seasons food deliciously without any added salt.

Dr. Oz recently featured Spike Seasoning Magics! on his show as an alternative to table salt. He also lists them as a great resource to help fight bloating and belly bulge.

I recently tried several flavors to try.  While I usually like to create my own seasonings while cooking, sometimes its a lot easier to grab something that’s “ready to use”.  The Spike seasonings are perfect for that.  Lots of flavor and all you have to do is sprinkle it on or mix it in.

One of the flavors I love using is the Spike ® Lemon Peper Magic! and I used it in this Greek Kamut Salad Recipe.  You can also substitute wheatberries or other whole grains for the kamut (or even brown rice).  Kamut can be found in the natural foods section of your grocery store or local health food store:

1 C. Kamut (or use another whole grain as described above)
3 C. water*
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 small red onion, diced
1/2 red pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
2 tsp Spike ® Lemon Peper Magic!
2 oz. crumbled feta cheese

Cook Kamut according to package directions (if no directions, bring water to boil in a saucepan, add Kamut, reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 45 minutes. Drain excess water.)  I like to just place the kamut and water in a rice cooker and set to cook.

While Kamut is cooking, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Add onion and red pepper and cook until transluscent. Add garlic and Spike® Lemon Peper Magic!  Cook 45 seconds, stirring steadily. Add in spinach and stir until wilted.

Add all to the Kamut and stir to combine. Stir in feta. If you don’t want the feta to melt, you can wait until kamut and veggies are cooled and then stir in the cheese.

*If the Kamut does not soften enough with cooking, add up to 1 cup of additional water and simmer until absorbed.
