Our Northern Italian Seasoning is delicious on anything Italian-- we're talking about pasta, chicken, bolognese sauce, bread, pizza! Every good Italian dish needs a good "mama's spice" blend and we have the perfect one for you that's made with organic spices such as basil, oregano, and rosemary.

Crushed Red Chili Pepper is one of the most used peppers in the Western world. It has a unique spiciness to it that is adored in various dishes, usually in dried and crushed forms. It was discovered ages ago in French Guinea, and has since spread across the Western continents. The peppers reach their true spice potential when they are deep red. They can be easily picked but are usually cut to avoid uprooting the whole plant.


After the quinoa is cooked, stir in some fresh spinach leaves, cranberry, and lima beans. The heat will soften the spinach but won't overcook it. Sprinkle some of our organic red chili to bring a bit of heat. It's a great dish served at any temperature!
