There's not really one single Greek seasoning blend recipe used throughout the country. What you'll get will depend on the season of the year and which part of the country you're in. This is a combination of tasty dried herbs and spices that will add superb flavours to many traditional dishes. (See the bottom of the page for other recipes)
Note: If you don't have all the whole ingredients available, use pre-ground powders and reduce the amount it says in the recipe by half. For example 1 tablespoon of peppercorns equals about 2 teaspoon pre-ground pepper. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well.
What You'll Need: (makes about 10 tablespoons)
tbsp dried oregano
2 tbsp dried parsley
1 tbsp onion flakes
1 tbsp garlic flakes
1 tbsp black peppercorns
4 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp grated nutmeg
1 tsp celery seeds
1 tsp sea salt
1 x 3 inch cinnamon stick (or 1 tablespoon ground)
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
Store your homemade Greek seasoning blend in a cool place out of direct sunlight and in an
airtight jar. Use within 2-3 months.
There are any number of ways you can use this...
... as a general seasoning for adding to soups and stews, or the famous moussaka.
Or oil some kebabs or pork chops before rubbing in the mix prior to barbecuing or grilling.
You can also do this with sliced eggplant (aubergine) and courgettes and grill these.
Or simply add to olive oil and use as dressing and drizzle over steamed vegetables or a salad.
