Greek Seasoning Blend Recipe - A Mix of
Herbs and Spices For Fab Greek Flavours

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)

What You'll Need: (makes about 10 tablespoons)

3 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 salt
1 x 3 inch cinnamon stick (or 1 tablespoon ground)

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Break up the cinnamon stick 
  • Grind the cinnamon pieces along with the salt, peppercorns, celery seeds, garlic and onion flakes
  • Once ground add to a bowl 
  • Add the nutmeg, and, add the cinnamon now if you used ground instead of whole
  • Finally crumble in the dried oregano, parsley and rhyme and combine thoroughly

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

Salt Note: You could use any salt for this recipe, however, I do recommend using a good quality salt: sea/rock/kosher etc as these are a bit less processed and I think add better flavours to your seasonings and therefore your home cooking. However you can use good old table salt (as I sometimes do) if that's all you have available.

Ingredient 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 and stir in with the other ingredients.
