Tuscan Herb Spice Mix

Tuscan Spice Herb Mix

Since Thanksgiving is now just a memory and another major holiday is just around the bend, you could probably use something easy in your life. This perfect blend of Italian spices to rub on a juicy roast or steaming medley of sautéed vegetables is just what you need, and will make preparing a warm wintertime meal all that much easier!

Italian Blend Spice Mix

This blend of herbs includes dried basil, dried marjoram, garlic powder, oregano, thyme, rosemary, and crushed red pepper flakes. I’ve found it gives just the right amount of full-bodied, robust flavor when added to pasta sauces, gravy, homemade breads, roasted vegetables, sprinkled over pizza, and when used to make a marinade for chicken breasts and other meats. It also makes a delicious dipping oil when combined with olive oil and freshly grated Parmesan!

Italian Herb Mix

I know you’ll find just as many uses for this very versatile and flavorful blend of Tuscan spices as I have, and enjoy all the ways it can make your weeknight meal preparations and special dinners simple and absolutely scrumptious!

    I have been really excited to make my own spice blends lately and this recipe looks great. I am going to try it later today. The flavor of home made blends is much better and fresher.

    I love spice blends too and this one sounds perfect, although I’m still mourning the loss of my fresh herb pots.

    Ohhh on pizza sounds great! I also love the idea of dipping oil. How do you think it would go on fish??

    Hi Melissa – Personally, I prefer lighter, less hearty seasonings for fish, but I see no reason why this wouldn’t be delicious on a thicker fish if that’s your taste. Enjoy!

    Did you ever try Kraft’s Tuscan Herb seasoning blend? I’m wondering if this is a good substitute. Have you tried it on chicken?

    • Georgia — May 13th, 2013 @ 5:00 pm

      Never tried the Kraft seasoning blend, but I can guarantee you’ll love this one on chicken! Along with a little olive oil, it makes a nice marinade.

    Just made the blend and getting ready to try it in turkey meatballs with some parm cheese. Any suggestions?

      Sounds good to me! What exactly are you looking for suggestions on?

    This is my go-to Italian seasoning! I have a big jar of this on the counter next to the stove, perfect for pasta and for a sprinkling on top of scrambled eggs! My jar is running a little bit low, so it’s time to make a new batch, the only flaw with this blend is the garlic powder just stuck to the bottom of the jar, so this time I’m going to use dried garlic/ garlic granules instead. Thanks for a great blend!
