Have a recipe that calls for Tuscan Seasoning, and can’t find it in the store, or don’t know what it is? I’ve got you covered. Make your own using this easy recipe.
Tuscan Seasoning is similar in content to Italian Seasoning, but with a few added ingredients! We combine dried basil, oregano,rosemary, marjoram and them, then add fennel seeds and garlic powder. Grind it up in a spice grinder or mortar and pestle, and you’re done!
There’s nothing wrong with store-bought spice blends. They’re easy and convenient, and reasonably inexpensive (for the most part). However, I really enjoy making my own where possible. Especially since it means I can control what does and doesn’t go in. Being able to amp up the basil if I want to or dial back the salt. This blend does not include salt or pepper – so you can add as much or as little as you prefer.
This Tuscan Seasoning is a much-tweaked blend that I like to use on pretty much everything. I leave out the sun-dried tomatoes or replace it with lemon zest – which makes a yummy addition to fish, or I add crushed red peppers to add a little kick.
Another way to use this is with olive oil and vinegar, to make a delicious vinaigrette. Use some fresh garlic and you’ll lick your (salad) bowl clean!
However it is that you roll, I’m providing the basis of the blend. The rest is up to you! It couldn’t be easier – see below!
Why this recipe works:
- Simple. Uses ingredients you probably already have in the pantry.
- Budget Friendly. No need to make an extra purchase!
- Adaptable. You can make this your own by adding salt, pepper, lemon zest or sun-dried tomatoes.
