I’ve mentioned before my love of Italian food that started when I married my husband (his family is originally from Sicily) and I started learning to make his favorite dishes.
Our transition to a grain free diet necessitated some substitutions and I started making recipes like chicken cacciatore with cabbage noodles, Meatza crustless pizza, one-pan vegetable spaghetti, eggplant parmesan, chicken Parmesan, zucchini lasagna, and others.
Homemade Italian Seasoning
I found myself buying jar after jar of organic Italian seasoning and it was getting expensive. Plus, I was having to buy a tiny new jar every couple of weeks because we went through it so quickly.
I was already ordering teas and lotion ingredients in bulk, so I decided to start ordering my Italian seasoning ingredients as well. I store this and all of my homemade herbal blends in half pint jars with marked lids for easy use and they stack in the cabinet for easy storage.
- Basil leaf
- Garlic powder (optional, especially if you cook with fresh garlic)
Homemade Italian Seasoning Recipe
Yield 2 cups
Homemade Italian seasoning with dried herbs like basil, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, thyme, and garlic is a cost effective alternative to store bought pre-mixed seasonings.
- If your rosemary is whole, rather than cut, simply chop it in a food processor or with a mortar and pestle.
- Combine all herbs in a jar and shake well to mix.
All spices called for in this recipe are dried.
Great in any Italian recipes such as eggplant Parmesan, chicken Parmesan, Meatza, grain free spaghetti, zucchini lasagna, etc.
