What's Sprout & Spice?
From the start, the seasoning of a meal has been an integral part of my cooking process. It began with an old, probably expired canister of Herbes de Provence that I used to sprinkle on everything that went on the frying pan. Through random experimentation, I discovered spices & herbs paired more beautifully with certain ingredients over others.
Amid cooking, I'd catch myself wanting to sprinkle a little of this here and a dash there. I longed for a simple and accessible online guide that unearthed the magical food pairing possibilities.

So began Sprout & Spice, a consciously curated collection of plant-based food pairings drawn from a variety of references, recipes and in-the-frying pan trial & error.
In the spirit of plant-based cooking, the current collection predominantly focuses on fruits, vegetables, spices, herbs & garnishes with few ingredients that fall outside of those categories. Our intention is to empower you to use plant-based ingredients as the nourishing base of a meal and incorporate spices & herbs to elevate your dish, all done without the use of a recipe.
