About

Paprika is a spice made from fruits of the chilli pepper family. Although paprika is often associated with Hungarian cuisine, the chillies from which it is made are native to Spain and Portugal. Spanish pimenton, as it is known there, is often smoked giving it a unique, earthy flavour and a very read colour. Paprika is used to add colour, flavour and a little heat to many types of dishes. Paprika is very nutrient dense, particularly rich in vitamins and essential minerals.

Uses

Paprika is a key spice for flavouring Spanish and Mexican dishes, soups, stews and sauces. It has been used for centuries in traditional paella recipes and is now also commonly used to make Mexican chilli mixes, like this Black Bean Chilli w Cashew Cream. It can be used alongside other herbs, spices, salt and pepper to coat meat, fish and vegetables before cooking, or it can be sprinkled raw on foods as a garnish. Paprika is a delicious base flavour in dressings, dips and hummus, such as this Smoked Paprika Hummus. It is also super tasty when sprinkled over vegetables or chickpeas before roasting them in the oven, like in these Chickpea Lettuce Cups or this Sorghum Roast Vege Salad.  Paprika is also commonly used in Moroccan-inspired dishes to provide depth of flavour and a little warming spice. This Moroccan Spiced Millet bowl is a quick weeknight dinner that’ll warm your soul. The flavour and spice of paprika is further enhanced when it is heated. For a very unique use of paprika, try this recipe for Coconut Bacon, which is a magical plant-based creation that tastes very similar to the real deal.
