Stick to your resolutions this year with a little help from Tia Mowry… and your spice cabinet.
After a hectic holiday season, Tia likes to take a step back to refocus on wellness goals and embrace a “whole you” approach for the body and soul. Tia believes, “Making better food choices can really make a new you. When I eat powerful food, I feel powerful.”
For Tia, these recipes are all about finding the joy in cooking through simple techniques, wholesome ingredients and big flavors. Good food doesn’t have to taste bland -- she makes sure her pantry is stocked with McCormick spices and herbs to give her favorite foods a big boost of taste while sticking to her wellness goals. Tia says, “Some of my favorite herbs and spices are basil, parsley, garlic and black pepper. These are my go-to seasonings to make everything taste great.”
Tia’s Crispy Roasted Chickpeas
“I love crispy chickpeas for great party food or just for snacking.” – Tia
Totally snackable by the handful or ready for adding craveable crunch to your favorite salad, you can make crispy (baked, not fried) chickpeas right at home. Seasoned in McCormick® Chili Powder and Crushed Red Pepper, they roast up tangy, savory and irresistible.
Tia’s Turkey Meatballs
“My son loves meatballs and so do I. To create a lightened-up version, I swapped the meat to turkey and added parsley, one of the most versatile herbs, and nutmeg for a kick.” – Tia
Served over zoodles (zucchini noodles), these meatballs are made with dairy-free milk and oatmeal to keep them moist and delicious. Seasoned with McCormick® Garlic Powder and Nutmeg, they have a savory warm taste that pairs perfectly with Tia’s Roasted Marinara Sauce.
Tia’s Roasted Marinara Sauce
“You can store the sauce in the freezer for up to two months – perfect to have on-hand for busy families.” – Tia
Homemade tomato sauce made easy. The robust Italian flavor comes from aromatic herbs and spices like McCormick® Garlic Powder, Parsley and Basil. Enjoy with Turkey Meatballs.
Tia’s Non-Dairy Parmesan “Cheese”
Whip up a quick, cheese-less Parmesan style topping for all your pasta, pizza and meatball-topping needs. Cashews and nutritional yeast serve as the non-dairy stand-in, giving this topping a just-like-cheese texture and taste. Best of all? It’s made with just four simple ingredients, including McCormick® Garlic Powder.
