Fajita and Quesadillas spice mixture without onion and garlic for those who are allergic

Do you like Fajitas and Quesadillas but can not have them because you are allergic to onion and garlic? Well, then, this is a recipe for you!

Our youngest son Patrick is fond of Quesadillas. Still, neither he nor his girlfriend can tolerate onions and garlic – mixed this spice mixture myself and I must say that works incredibly well. Super delicious without onions or garlic! You can, of course, add and subtract things in the spice mixture. The mixture lacks salt; I only have a pinch  (1/4 tsp) with celery salt, so you have to season the chicken and vegetables with salt and pepper.

All I had to do was read what is included in the ready-made spice mixture that one can buy in the store and then, based on experience, balance it myself by adding and subtracting spices; it was not more complicated than that.

You need 20 grams of this spice, for 500 grams of chicken or meat,

Ingredients: the batch provides 45 grams of spice.

3 tablespoons pepper (preferably smoked)
1 tablespoon turmeric
0.5 teaspoon dried fenugreek leaves
0.5 tablespoons ground coriander seeds (not the same as coriander!)
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp ground cumin
1 – 2 ml cayenne pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
1 Tbsp of dried lovage
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1 Tbsp dried chives
A pinch or two celery salts

The method, Measure everything and put it in a small mixer. Take a few turns with the mixer – ready!

You can add these spices to get even more flavor:
1/4 of a tsp cinnamon or 1/4 of a tsp dried grated peel of lemon. It is possible to replace dried grated lemon peel with 1/4 of a tsp dried lime (Limo Omani – Persian spice). You can also add a little basil (1/4 of a tsp), or increase the dried parsley amount. Yes, you can mix in what you like quite merely. Start from the base the first time, and then you can increase the different ingredients based on your preferences.
