You’ll never miss the salt when there are other great spices to take its place! Herbs and spices are a great way to add flavor without overdoing it on the salt. Using cheese as a topping at the end creates both flavor and texture, but you don’t need a lot! Make sure to measure and divide ½ cup cheese among the 4 bowls.
