Sebastian (a lady) Posted February 15, 2012 Share Posted February 15, 2012 Here are the recipes I've been using instead of packaged seasonings: Italian Dressing Mix (this is from Allrecipes.com) 1 tablespoon garlic salt 1 tablespoon onion powder 1 tablespoon white sugar 2 tablespoons dried oregano 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme (I think I used tarragon the last time; I'm always out of thyme.) 1 teaspoon dried basil 1 tablespoon dried parsley 1/4 teaspoon celery salt 2 tablespoons salt I dump all of this into a clean jelly jar, then shake to mix it up. To prepare dressing, combine 1/4 cup white vinegar, 2/3 cup light oil, 2 tablespoons water and 2 tablespoons of the dry mix. Shake well or whisk to mix. Chili Powder (I also use this as taco seasoning with ground beef or chicken.) (These measurements are parts. I tend to use tablespoons and jump it into a jar so I have plenty for the next time. But you could also use teaspoons and have about the right enough for one use.) 3 parts ground cumin (I grind from whole seed in an electric coffee grinder. Flavor is poppin' fresh.) 3 parts ground dried oregano 3 parts garlic powder 2 parts cayenne (I've used other dried peppers in a pinch) 2 parts salt Combine and mix well. I probably use about 4 tablespoons in 2 lbs of ground beef for taco meat. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
