Italian Seasoning

Note: All Communal Fire spice recipes are developed using weights. We do this when we are designing seasoning blends to ensure that our clients and blog readers are able to get as close to a specific recipe as possible. It also allows you to use whatever you have on hand. 5 grams of coriander ground is the same amount of 5 grams of coriander whole.

Italian seasoning is a versatile herb blend that encapsulates the flavors of Italian cuisine, adding depth and aroma to various dishes. Typically composed of dried herbs such as basil, oregano, parsley, thyme, and rosemary, Italian seasoning offers a convenient way to infuse dishes with the classic taste of Italy. This fragrant blend can also include garlic powder, onion powder, and red pepper flakes for added complexity. Italian seasoning is widely used in pasta sauces, marinades, salad dressings, and meat rubs, imparting a savory, herbaceous flavor profile that enhances the overall taste of the dish. Whether sprinkled on pizza, stirred into soups, or mixed into homemade bread dough, Italian seasoning adds a touch of Mediterranean flair to any culinary creation.

We leave this out right were we cook. It’s a super versatile seasoning and it’s great to throw in vegetables, potatoes, almost anything. Enjoy.
