This recipe has been added to the shopping list.

Instructions

Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  1. Thoroughly mix together all the spices and pour into a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
  2. If you use whole seeds, grind in a grinder either in advance or when cooking.
  3. Keep the spices in a dark, dry and cool place. Small tin cans are great.
  4. Make a big batch to last for 4–6 months, after this the spices will lose some flavor and color. They won't go bad, but will be less powerful.

Tip!

If you don't have all the herbs above, you can either skip them or exchange for something else. Marjoram works well instead of parsley for example. We used dried garlic flakes, but you can also use garlic powder. Adding salt, or not, to your spice mix is a matter of choice.

    If a food such as the italian seasoning which has 13g, does that mean a serving or teaspoon is 13g? If a dish is 8g, would that mean for each serving?

    This whole batch (over 1 cup) is 13g carbs. Most recipes would only call for using 1-2t at a time.

    The garlic powder (about 6 carbs per tbsp) and the onion powder (about 1.6 per tsp) are just two examples. All of the herbs will have carbs as well and they add up.
