Italian Seasoning Recipe - A Mix of Herbs
to Capture the Flavours of Italian Cuisine

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.

Italian Seasoning Recipe

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


  • Grind the peppercorns and garlic flakes
  • Add to a bowl and combine thoroughly with the herbs
  • Store in a cool place in an airtight jar and out of direct sunlight. Use within 2-3 months

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.
