dining in Greece, the Greek seasoning blend that's added to your food will
depend on what part of the country you're in. Northern cooking will vary from Southern food, East from West. This herby blend uses a mixture of typical dried herbs with a few spices which are often
used in traditional Northern cooking. (See the bottom of the page for other recipes)
Note: For this recipe I use whole garlic and onion flakes. However, if you don't have them, simply use pre-ground and reduce the amounts by about half. So for 2 teaspoons of whole flakes you use 1 teaspoon of pre-ground garlic/onion. Same with the peppercorns.
What You'll Need: (makes about 11-12 tablespoons)
tbsp dried Greek oregano
2 tbsp dried thyme
2 tbsp dried mint
1 tbsp dried marjoram
6-8 dried bay leaves
2 tsp onion flakes
2 tsp garlic flakes
2 tsp peppercorns
1 tsp grated nutmeg
1 x 3 inch piece cinnamon (or 1 tbsp ground)
1-2 tsp sea salt
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
Store in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 2-3 months before making more.
Note: I used Greek oregano for authenticity but you can use regular if that's all you have, though it will add a slightly different taste to your dishes.
