jIQoch.  I see no hint that "vegetation for cooking" means something  
added to improve the taste of food.  It could just as easily refer to  
a wrapper, either edible (like grape leaves) or not (e.g. corn  
husks), and the first thing that comes to my mind is actually fuel  
for heating.  If you want to talk about spices, I think {tlhorgh} is  
a much better word to employ than is {vut}.
