This simple homemade Greek seasoning recipe makes a small amount, about 4 tablespoons of spice blend. But, I like to cut the recipe in half and make around 2 tablespoons of greek seasoning, since I don’t use it often and can make it quickly if needed.
I first discovered Greek seasoning in the old non-vegan days, when we would grill, we would use it on meats. Sometimes you miss certain flavors, so I wanted to see how I could use it as a vegan. Of course, it’s great on veggies! I had a suspicion it might be.
You’ll likely have on hand most of the ingredients needed to make Greek seasoning. This recipe is based on those I found at allrecipes and No Spoon Necessary. There are many variations of this seasoning mix, you can do like I did – look at a lot of them and just pick and choose which classic blends of the herbs and spices you wish to use!
Greek seasoning recipes call for Greek oregano. But, I didn’t have any on hand, nor could I find it at my local grocery store. So, I used regular dried oregano.
Some recipes also call for a small amount of cornstarch, usually 1 teaspoon, to keep the herbs and spices from clumping. Since I make such a small amount of this blend, I don’t add the cornstarch. I have, however, included it in the recipe as an optional ingredient.
You might enjoy using this herb & spice blend in my Greek Zucchini & Yellow Squash recipe. You could also add it to this Oil Free Hummus recipe, to replace the za’atar.
I love making my own spice mixes. You can find some other mixes I make regularly and always have on hand in my Spice Mixes section.
