Lawry's Roasted Garlic Salt was simply the best spice I've ever had. And had I known it was discontinued I would've bought a few cases.

If you're familiar with it can you recommend something similar.

    The ingredient list from the back of the bottle, in order: Salt, sugar, modified corn starch, roasted garlic, spices (including oregano and basil), natural flavor, extractives of carrots. – Cindy May 14 '18 at 13:56

    This was flagged for closure because this site doesn't do recipe requests. However, since you're trying to mimic an existing recipe, it might be acceptable. Have you tried duplicating it yourself? What were the particular flavor components of it that you find lacking in other spice blends? – Erica May 14 '18 at 15:42

    And that means the law is not effective because all it does is leave a sour taste. – Randy Zeitman May 15 '18 at 22:45

    Restaurant mimicry has been considered on topic since the early days of this site, as you have a specific goal that other people would be familiar with, and this would be similar (Although it might get iffy if you asked some hole in the wall restaurant unless you also tell what you’ve tried and how it differed from the restaurant) – Joe May 21 '18 at 16:47

We know that:

"Natural flavor" and "carrot extract" are really hard to find and are the ingredients with the least amount of weight in this recipe so I'll leave them out of this for the moment.

If we would mix 5 teaspoons of the above ingredients we'd come to a total of 0.8795g, which is too low so let's increase the cheapest and heaviest ingredient:

  • 1.4 teaspoons of salt + 1 teaspoon sugar + 1 teaspoon of corn starch + 1 teaspoon of garlic +1 of spices is 1.09 g

That leaves you to play with 0.01g of natural flavor and carrot extract to get it just right, but the above should be 99% correct.

    Great answer! I would be very interested to know the results from anyone who tries this. – Cindy Jun 7 '18 at 9:12
  • @Cindy I don't know what the original tastes like as I've never used it, so I just took a best shot at recreating a recipe from best estimates but if you know what it tastes like, it'l take just 5 teaspoons of ingredients you already have in the house to test it out... – Fabby Jun 7 '18 at 13:44

    Sorry, I've never used it. I'm hoping that someone who is familiar with it will try your recipe and let us know. – Cindy Jun 7 '18 at 13:48
  • Looking at those ingredients I'm going to go out on a limb and say it tastes mostly like salt. – Sobachatina Jun 7 '18 at 14:23
  • And I cook without salt and with a ton of herbs... 0:-) @Sobachatina – Fabby Jun 7 '18 at 14:48
