Italian Seasoning

italian Seasoning

Oh, this is a very basic and simple recipe, if you can call it that, but one that comes in handy when you want to add some mixed herbs to zing up your dish. Especially, when you’ve to rustle up a quick Italian dinner when guests come at short notice. I know that occasion isn’t going to be so frequent (hopefully), still, I find it a useful spice herb mix to stock up on. Agreed, it is easily available in the market, but making your own mix can be a much cheaper option if you have the base herbs on hand.

I use this mix pretty freely for a whole lot of things – in vinaigrette, simple salads, pastas and pizzas to bread and savoury cheese muffins. The latter two get a total makeover with the addition of this simple yet flavour-packed herb mix.


Whole Wheat Loaf with Italian SeasoningTo use this in bread, I’d suggest a basic dinner roll dough embellished with a bit of Italian seasoning mix in the dough itself, as well as to brush on top of the loaf. Once you prepare your dough, roll it out into a nice big rectangle, the breadth being roughly the same length as your bread loaf pan. Smear 1 tbsp of softened butter over it and sprinkle 2 tsp of Italian seasoning. Roll from the shorter side and place into your bread pan. Brush 1 tbsp of milk on the shaped bread and sprinkle ½ tsp of Italian seasoning and bake. Do try it
