Greek Seasonings - A Traditional Mix of
Dried Herbs and Spices For Classic Flavours

Greek seasonings are a blend of traditional herbs and spices and are so easy-to-make with many uses. You could add a tablespoon to some olive oil to make a dressing and drizzle over steamed vegetables or a salad. Or rub this dressing on your pork before grilling. Or just use as a  general seasoning for your stews, soups and moussakas. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)

Homemade Greek Seasonings

What You'll Need: (makes about 7-8 tablespoons)

3 tbsp dried oregano 
2 tbsp dried thyme
1 tbsp dried rosemary
1 tbsp dried basil
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp black peppercorns
2 inch cinnamon stick
1 whole nutmeg
2 tsp sea salt

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Break up the cinnamon stick and grate a teaspoons worth of nutmeg
  • Grind the cinnamon pieces along with the peppercorns and salt
  • Sieve into a bowl
  • Stir in the grated nutmeg, onion and garlic powders
  • Finally, crumble in the oregano, thyme, rosemary and basil and thoroughly combine

Store your Greek blend in an airtight container out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.

Note: This recipe uses whole peppercorns. If you don't have them, just use ground and halve the amount you add to the mix. So for 2 teaspoons of whole peppercorns you use 1 teaspoon of pre-ground pepper and stir in with the other powders. Likewise, if you don't have whole cinnamon sticks, use 2 teaspoons of pre-ground cinnamon and stir in.
