WHAT IS GREEK SEASONING?
Greek seasoning is a blend of spices and herbs common to the Mediterranean region. This includes marjoram, oregano, basil, dill and thyme. Many of these ingredients have actually been documented as being used by Ancient Greeks to add flavor to their food.
WHY MAKE GREEK SEASONING FROM SCRATCH?
Making seasoning blends on your own is always a better idea than purchasing them pre-made at the store. By doing this, you can truly customize the blend to your liking. Plus, this Greek seasoning is made out of a variety of common spices, so you probably already have all of these ingredients at home and will save money by making it versus buying it!
WHAT SPICES ARE IN GREEK SEASONING?
My Greek seasoning is made up of 12 simple spices that you probably already have on hand. It is a perfect mixture of common Greek flavors, savory dried herbs, and aromatic spices.
Here’s what you will need to make it:
- Garlic powder
- Greek oregano
- Dried basil
- Dried onion
- Black pepper
- Dried parsley
- Dried dill
- Dried marjoram
HOW TO MAKE GREEK SEASONING
You can make it as simply as combining all the above ingredients together in a bowl and storing it in an airtight container for up to one month. It’s perfect and ready to go in 5 minutes.
However, if you prefer a smoother texture, you can use a food processor or spice grinder to blend all the ingredients together for 30-45 seconds. Blending all the ingredients together in a grinder will create a finer texture of the seasonings. This can help the seasoning stick to food better, but is not necessary.
HOW TO USE GREEK SEASONING
This Greek seasoning blend is so versatile. It can be used on vegetables, chicken, fish, grains, or even in dips! It is definitely something you’ll want to keep around to try it on different things.
A good rule of thumb is to use 2 tablespoons of seasoning per pound of meat, and 1 tablespoon per cup of uncooked grains or vegetables.
If you choose to add it to yogurt to make a vegetable dip, start with 1 teaspoon per cup of dip, and taste to see if more is needed. Same rule applies if using it with olive oil to create a dip.
HOW TO STORE
Store your homemade greek seasoning in an airtight container in a cool, dark, dry place for up to one month. That’s if you don’t use it all up before then!
This is a simple and easy recipe to make your own Greek Seasoning at home. Save your money and use the ingredients you already have in your pantry instead of going out and buying another jar of seasoning!
