  • 1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt (optional; see note)

Notes

This recipe makes enough to season 1 lb of meat or any dish that will serve 4 people. Want to make a big batch? Use the handy slider next to “servings” above to customize the measurements.
Storage: A glass or plastic container saved from store-bought spices works great for storing your own seasoning blends. I have been using 4-oz mason jars for all of my spices and seasoning blends for nearly a decade. It’s inexpensive and looks super organized.
Salt: It’s up to you if you’d like to add salt to this seasoning mix. If you prefer, you can make and store the seasoning without salt - just be sure to add it later when you use the seasoning in a recipe.
