Salt Free Seasoning - Sodium Free
But Still Packed With Flavour

If you're after a salt free seasoning then making one yourself is the way to go. As you have complete control over what ingredients you use you can enjoy a tasty mix completely free of salt but still packed with flavour. Below is an all-purpose recipe suitable for all your home cooking. (See the bottom of the page for other recipes)

What You'll Need: (makes about 8-9 tablespoons)

4 tbsp coriander seeds
2 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp dried parsley
2 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp black peppercorns
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
8 dried bay leaves

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Crumble the bay
  • Grind the bay with the coriander, cumin and peppercorns
  • Add to a bowl
  • Stir in the chili, paprika, turmeric, onion and garlic powders
  • Finally, crumble in the oregano and parsley. Combine thoroughly

Store in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.

Note: If you'd like to extract even more flavours from the ingredients then dry toasting the coriander, cumin and peppercorns before grinding and combining is worth doing. Click here for tips and photos on toasting and grinding ingredients. (Link opens in new window)

Ingredient Note: I use a few whole spices for this recipe, however, if you don't have them whole just use pre-ground powders and reduce the amount the recipe requires by half. So, for 4 tablespoons of coriander seeds you use 2 tablespoons of pre-ground coriander. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with any other powders when making.
