How to Make Homemade Italian Seasoning at Home

Most typical Italian seasoning blends combine dried basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, and onion powder. From there, each Italian cook’s signature blend is slightly different and can even include dried vegetables.

Our favorite blend includes dried red bell pepper which you can find already dried on Amazon, or you could dehydrate the peppers yourself at home. We like the addition of dried red bell pepper because when rehydrated in a dressing or other recipe, it provides a little extra sweetness.

This is a versatile seasoning for which you’ll find many uses in various dishes, ranging from pasta sauces, pizzas, and marinades to salads, soups, and for seasoning roasted vegetables.

YOUR OWN NOTES

KITCHEN NOTES

Tips for making homemade Italian seasoning:
  • Experiment with different ratios of herbs to find a blend that suits your taste preferences.
  • Use the freshest dried herbs whenever possible. Remember that fresh-cut, dried herbs will tend to have a more vibrant flavor than dried herbs that have sat in your cupboard for a long time.
  • Store the seasoning in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and moisture. This will ensure that the spices remain fresh and potent for a lengthier period.
  • If desired, add red pepper flakes to the seasoning for a bit of heat. Of course, this is optional and can be omitted if you don't like spicy food.
  • Some recipes call for salt in their homemade Italian seasoning. However, we feel it's best to leave out the salt and season your dish accordingly to whatever you're making.

Meet Kymberley [Upson] Pekrul

A professional writer and self-taught Gfree lifestyle expert on [most] gluten-free things, I’ve always loved cooking and creating delicious foods from scratch for myself and those I love.

My journey began when everything I thought I knew about cooking and eating suddenly changed one day when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

I live in what’s known as the Holylands of Central Wisconsin. All the recipes you’ll find here are gluten-free and inspired by the people and places I love most. Whenever possible, I cook with seasonal ingredients using whole foods – Making dishes suitable for everyday life and all food lovers gathered at the same table.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!
