Greek Seasoning Recipe - A Pleasing Mix of
Traditional Dried Herbs and Spices

A typical Greek seasoning recipe will usually consist of whatever happens to be growing in the garden at the time and which part of the country you are dining in. And though the Greeks will often use fresh ingredients, this blend of dried herbs and spices will allow you to recreate the fab flavours of their cuisine. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my homemade recipes)

What You'll Need: (makes about 8-9 tablespoons)

3 tbsp dried Greek oregano (or any variety)
2 tbsp dried mint
1 tbsp dried basil
1 tbsp dried rosemary
6-8 dried bay leaves
2 tsp onion flakes
1 tsp garlic flakes
2 inch piece of cinnamon
1 whole nutmeg

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon

Directions:

  • Grate about a teaspoons worth of nutmeg
  • Break up the cinnamon stick and crumble the bay leaves
  • Grind the cinnamon and bay pieces along with the dried rosemary, onion and garlic flakes
  • Once ground add to a bowl
  • Stir in the grated nutmeg
  • Crumble in the dried mint, basil and oregano. Combine well

Store in a cool place in an airtight jar and out of direct sunlight. Use within 2-3 months.

If using herb-based blends, crumble them through your fingers when adding to your cooking. This will help to release more flavours.



Ingredient Note: If you don't have garlic or onion flakes, just use garlic and onion powders but reduce the amount the recipe says by half and stir in with the grated nutmeg.



Here's a slideshow of how I made the above. The amounts used are a little lower but the ingredients and process are the same...


Using Your Flavour-Packed Greek Seasoning Recipe

For authenticity, a nice idea when making this blend is to try and get hold of some Greek oregano. If you can't, regular oregano will suffice.

My favourite way of using it is to cover some meat with oil before covering with the seasoning and barbecuing.

You can also do this with sliced vegetables.

It also works well added to stews and soups, or mix it with olive oil and drizzle over a simple salad.
