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)

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
  • Once ground add to a bowl
  • Finally, crumble in the dried oregano, basil, thyme and sage and combine

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

When using, it's a good idea to crumble the blend between your fingertips. This will break down the herbs releasing their oils and more of their flavour.

Ingredient 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 pepper and garlic and stir in when making.
