What's One Ingredient You Swear by - That People Should Use More Often?

Whether it's for nutritional value, taste, or other...

I've recently fallen in love with toasted sesame seed oil. Pouring a little bit on veggies or stir fries goes a long way.

    I recently discovered Harissa seasoning. Good on veggies. Olives. Fries. Popcorn.

    Sour cream. I feel like in a lot of dishes it can substitute for cheese (and/or salad dressing) without my even noticing there's no cheese. A dollop in most soups, lentils, beans, makes it creamy and delicious. I like full fat or light sour cream, either one.

    My cousin and I both claim that sour cream should have it's own special food group because it's so good.

    Ground Golden Flaxseed. Nice flavor, all the Omegas of fish oil without the smell, ALA to help fight inflammation & they help control hunger. I add this stuff to at least half of my meals.

    Interesting, will have to look into this!!

    If I have to pick just one, it's probably Penzey's Fox Point/Justice. They're the same spice blend, except Fox Point has salt and Justice doesn't. I put it in and on everything; notable examples include scrambled eggs, pizza, pasta, and beans.

    If I can list more than one, let me know :)
