What is In Hello Fresh Fry Seasoning?
Although there is much speculation about the ingredients in Hello Fresh fry seasoning, the back of the meal kit package reveals the original blend contains only garlic powder, paprika, and onion powder. However, the ratios of these ingredients are not disclosed, leaving the question of how to achieve the signature flavor. After hours of mixing and testing, we found the ultimate combination of these three ingredients, saving you the effort of figuring it out yourself.
How To Make Hello Fresh Fry Seasoning
Making your own Hello Fresh fry seasoning is easy! Simply combine paprika, garlic powder and onion powder. If you want the freshest flavor, consider making your own garlic and onion powder at home by dehydrating sliced pieces and pulverizing them in a blender. Homemade spices are less processed, have better flavor, and don't contain artificial additives.
Here are a few variations of the Hello Fresh Fry Seasoning recipe:
- Spicy: Add some heat by mixing in ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes.
- Smoky: For a smoky flavor, swap out the regular paprika for smoked paprika.
- Herbed: Mix in some dried herbs like rosemary or thyme for a more complex flavor.
- Cheesy: For a cheesy twist, add in some grated parmesan cheese to the seasoning blend.
How To Use This Fry Seasoning
According to Hello Fresh, 1 tablespoon of fry seasoning is recommended for every 1 ½ pounds of ingredients, whether it's meat, vegetables, or anything else you're making. In other words, use one teaspoon of seasoning for every half pound of ingredients.
At first, we thought that using only a tablespoon of fry seasoning may not be enough to make a difference. However, after some experimentation, we discovered that this spice blend is actually quite potent and a little goes a long way.
This seasoning can be used on a variety of vegetables, such as sweet potatoes, potatoes, pumpkin, butternut squash, carrots, Brussels sprouts, and beans.
