This is seasoning mix from "The Gumbo Pages", one of my favorite web places to be. Southern delight and good story telling. The recipe is how he wrote it!
- 2 tablespoons onion powder
- 2 tablespoons garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons dried oregano leaves
- 2 tablespoons dried sweet basil leaves
- 1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon white pepper
- 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon celery seed
- 5 tablespoons sweet paprika
- A very versatile seasoning blend. Use this as a base seasoning, and build upon it in your dish.
- Some versions of Creole seasoning blend contain salt -- I don't do that, because I like to control salt content separately. If you insist on this blend being salty, á la Tony Chachere's "when it's salty enough, it's perfectly seasoned!" rationale, start with 2 tablespoons salt in the blend, increasing up to 4 tablespoons depending on your sodium tolerance level.
- Combine in food processor and pulse until well-blended, or mix thoroughly in a large bowl. The recipe doubles or triples well. Give lots of it away as gifts to your family and friends.
Fabulous! I will be using this a lot... a fantastic flavor blend without the salt. I recently used this with April's White Bean Dip #38866 and WOW. Thanks!
I use this spice blend exclusively when I am making my family Cajun recipes. It allows me to adjust the salt and the heat to fit our personal preferences. It is an authentic Creole/Cajun seasoning mix. I highly recommend it.
