Ingredient Notes

  • Paprika: I use plain paprika and not smoked.
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Salt: I use fine salt. If you use coarse salt, you may need to add more to taste. If you want a salt-free version, simply omit this ingredient. 
  • Black pepper
  • Parsley
  • Oregano
  • Sugar: I like to use monk fruit sweetener or coconut sugar instead of refined granulated sugar. 

Recipe Step-by-Step

  1. Add your dried herbs and spices to a jar or small bowl and mix.

Mac’s Pro Tips

  1. Make it Fine: If you want a fine blend, add to a blender and blend for 10-15 seconds. 
  2. Give it a Kick: If you love cooking with a little extra spice, feel free to add red pepper flakes or a little cayenne pepper to taste. 
  3. Make a Big Batch: If you want to make a big batch, simply double or triple the recipe. 

Storage Tips

  • Store in a container with a lid in a cool, dry place like your pantry or spice cabinet for the life span of the seasoning. It will keep for at least 6 months.
