It’s so easy and affordable to make your own Garlic & Herb Seasoning Blend at home.
Chances are you already have most every ingredient on hand in your spice cabinet. And while this blend has quite a few, you can certainly omit or include your favorites.
Speaking of spice cabinets.
During quarantine I organized ours alphabetically. It actually works pretty well for us EXCEPT when someone brings a new spice to the mix. Then there’s a whole lotta shuffling going on!
How do you organize your spices? I’m totally open to a new solution. I’d love for you to leave me a comment below.
I’m working on a new recipe today and reached for the bottle of Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb seasoning. It is without a doubt my go-to blend. It was time to make a big batch at home.
The picture above probably best illustrates why I like to make my own seasoning blends. I included 17 different spices in this one.
We have SOOO many individual jars that it just makes sense. Not only will it help me use up spices we already own (keeping them fresh), but it will save me roughly $3.00. I’ll take it!
I use this blend in soups, on sauteed and roasted veggies, in my chicken rub, and multiple dressings & vinaigrettes. It’s so versatile and easily delivers wonderful layers of flavor.
Here’s how I broke it down!
Spice Blend Ingredients
The main components are dried garlic & onion, as well as garlic & onion powder.
According to the label on a jar of Mrs. Dash the next ingredient is the “Spice” blend which consists of pepper, parsley, fennel, basil, bay marjoram, savory, thyme, cayenne, coriander, cumin, mustard, rosemary, celery seed.
The final ingredients in the blend are carrot, orange peel and spice extracts.
I was pleasantly surprised to find we owned fennel, savory and orange peel. However I also omitted four items: bay, marjoram, carrot and spice extracts.
In a side by side taste comparison this homemade seasoning blend is pretty darn close to the original.
Here are a few other spice blends you might enjoy!
