A typical Italian seasoning recipe will generally contain what happens to be growing in the garden at the time of cooking. Just in case you don't have fresh, this blend is based on dried versions of herbs that typically you'll find in any garden. (See the bottom of the page for other recipes)
Note: If you don't have whole peppercorns or garlic flakes for this Italian herb recipe you can use pre-ground pepper and garlic powders. Just reduce the amounts you use by half. So for 2 teaspoons of peppercorns and garlic flakes, you would use 1 teaspoon of pre-ground.
What You'll Need: (makes about 10 tablespoons)
3 tbsp dried oregano
3 tbsp dried basil
3 tbsp dried thyme
2 tbsp dried sage
2 tsp garlic flakes
2 tsp black peppercorns
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
That's all there is to it!
When using, crumble the herbs between your fingertips. This will release the oils and more of their flavours.
Note: Get the best quality herbs you can. Some, especially at the cheaper end of the market, may not have much flavour. So go for ones that look bright and vibrant.
