Gyro Seasoning


Because I cook a lot I am always looking for interesting blends for different dishes but I just can’t always find what I need at the grocery store. Most of the time I already have what I need in the cupboard but I just have to put it together.

I probably don’t cook Greek inspired foods as often as I should with its wonderful Mediterranean use of nuts and honey but at the very least with this blend I am now ready to take it on.

This spice blend is full of all my favourite flavours like oregano, garlic and cinnamon. All I needed was my handy dandy coffee/spice grinder to make the magic happen.

  • 1½ tablespoons dried oregano
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1½ tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper (note: freshly ground black pepper is less volume than non-freshly ground, if using non-freshly ground use half the amount)
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1½ tablespoons sweet paprika powder
  • ¼ inch cinnamon stick
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Combine all spices together and grind to a fine powder. Store in an air tight container till needed.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
