PRODUCT USED: Saha Green Seasoning Marinade

ATTRIBUTES: Vegetarian, Comfort Food

PREP TIME: 15-20 minutes; COOKING TIME: 12-15 minutes

SERVES - 8-10


  • 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) yellow corn meal
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) baking powder
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) white sugar
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) salt
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) Saha Green Seasoning Marinade
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) cold butter
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Before beginning, move the butter to the freezer and leave for 15-20 minutes to ensure it's cold when needed. Preheat oven to 450 °F. In a large bowl combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar and salt and mix until well combined.
  2. Using a box grater, grate the cold butter into the flour mixture.
  3. Gently fold the butter into the flour mixture until well combined. Do not knead the dough at this point. The mixture should be crumbly.
  4. In a small bowl combine the buttermilk and the Saha Green Seasoning Marinade and mix until well combined.
  5. Form a well in the centre of the flour and butter mixture and add the buttermilk mixture and grated cheese.
  6. Gradually fold the dry ingredients into the centre of the bowl and gently mix until a dough begins to form. If the mixture is too wet, sprinkle with a touch more flour. The dough should be slightly tacky, but not so much that it sticks to your fingers.
  7. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into six equal portions and form them into flat discs, approximately 1 inch thick.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the biscuits are cooked through and golden brown.
