When it comes to Latin American cooking adobo is the not-so-secret seasoning you can never go wrong with. It’s a dry rub that is used in a majority of dishes. While it is traditionally used to flavor meat, you can apply it to tofu, tempeh, seitan, and even vegetables — and because it’s made from a blend of common household spices, you can easily make your own with this No-Salt Adobo Seasoning, without the salt!
