12 Days of a THRIVING Christmas - Day 8

Today on Day 8 of  our THRIVING Christmas we are talking about THRIVE Sauces & Seasonings

THRIVE has 4 sauces that can be used to make pretty much any sauce you want.  These sauces make cooking so much easier.  They are all also certified gluten free.  Our sauces include Bachemel,  Espagnole, Veloute, and Tomato.
Sauce Variety 4-Pack
Bachemel is a white sauce you can use to make alfredo, gravy, or creamy potato soup.
Espagnole is a beef flavored sauce you can use again for gravy, or beef stew, or in enchiladas.
Veloute is a chicken flavored sauce you can use for gravy, creamy casseroles, or chicken pot pie.
Tomato is pretty self explanatory and can be used for marinara, tomato bisque, or on pizza.

I really like the convenience of all the sauces but I probably use Bachemel the most.  It is so versatile and so simple to use to make all the dishes I like.

THRIVE has 10 seasonings, including freeze dried herbs, seasoning blends, and extracts.

ChivesChef's ChoicePure Vanilla Powder - Spice Can
Herbs include Basil, Chives, Cilantro, Oregano, and Parsley
Seasoning Blends include Chef's Choice, Italian, Peppercorn, and Salad Seasoning.
Extracts include Pure Vanilla Powder.

My favorite that I use all the time is the Chef's Choice.  It is a fabulous all purpose blend and use have used it in/on just about everything, including pastas, potato dishes, sandwiches, sauces, soups, casseroles, meatloaf, chicken, beef, fish, etc.  It is just a great blend.  I love it.


When cooking with freeze dried herbs, you generally add them towards the end of cooking process, as you would fresh herbs. Regularly dried herbs you generally add towards the beginning of the cooking process.
