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!
There’s nothing wrong with store bought spice blends. They’re easy and convenient, and reasonably inexpensive (for the most part), but I really enjoy making my own where possible. Especially since it means I can control what does and doesn’t go in. I like the flexibility of it all – being able to amp up the basil if I want to, or dial back the salt.
This Tuscan Seasoning is a much tweaked blend that I like to use on pretty much everything. I leave out the sun dried tomatoes, and replace it with lemon zest – which makes a yummy addition to fish, or I add crushed red peppers to add a little kick.Have a recipe that calls for Tuscan Seasoning, and can't find it in the store, or don't know what it is?
