For savory dishes, I would also vote for paprika, onion and garlic powder. Also, red pepper flakes - although it is pepper, it adds a whole new dimension to a dish.

Lawry's Seasoned Salt helps in most situations where savory food is bland. I also use a lot of Mural of Flavor, a salt-free Mediterranean-inspired herb blend from Penzeys that contains dried shallots, onion, garlic, thyme, rosemary, basil, coriander, lemon peel, citric acid, black pepper, chives, green peppercorns, dill weed, and orange peel, as well as their Arizona Dreaming blend (involves ancho chili pepper, black pepper, onion, garlic, paprika, spices, cumin, citric acid, Mexican oregano, cilantro, lemon peel, chipotle pepper, red pepper, jalapeño, cocoa).

Cinnamon and nutmeg can be used on both sweet and savory dishes, but they won't necessarily be good on everything. And they're often best used to complement other spices.

Garlic and cinnamon. That just might do it. Thanks to the OP for the question and thanks to AnonChick for an answer. Now all I have to do is see how garlic tastes on these absolutely tasteless pureed baby food veggies. I know some of you know what I mean. :-)

Yes, I am serious. I know an elderly gentleman who is limited to pureed foods and tries to eat those baby foods. Fruits are fine; veggies, not.

I'm betting it helps a lot, as long as he is a garlic fan. Some vegies might taste better with onion powder.

And, did you know that garlic or garlic powder is used in a lot of dog foods? When we have had to get our dog to eat plain rice, garlic powder did the trick.

It's an idea I am going to pass on. Again, thanks.

I keep a couple of Michelina's Entrees in the freezer and nearly always add garlic powder and often 4 or 5 shrimp.

I've found that cayenne goes well with nearly everything. I even sprinkle it on sliced green apples!

A can of Tony Cacheres Creole Seasoning says right on the label, "Great on Everything!" It's actually become a joke between me and my husband, because he does put it on almost everything. I'll jokingly ask him, "Do you think it will be good on that?" and he'll point to the label and say, "It's great on EVERYTHING!"
