What spices are used in Greek food?
Greek cuisine primarily uses oregano, mint, garlic, onion, dill, and bay leaf, along with the addition of basil, thyme, fennel seeds, and parsley.
What are Greek herbs?
There is an abundant amount of Greek herbs, as it is a country located in the Mediterranean. The most notable herbs include basil, bay leaf, dill, fennel, marjoram, mint, oregano, parsley, purslane, rosemary, sage, savory, tarragon, and thyme.
What are some spices from the Middle East?
Middle Eastern spice blends frequently include allspice, black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, cumin, nutmeg, and dried chili peppers. Since Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine are closely related, we are adding a little warmth to our Greek seasoning recipe with the addition of some of these spices.
What can be used instead of marjoram?
If you don't have marjoram, oregano is the best substitute since the two come from the same family of herbs and are closely related in flavor. You can also replace marjoram with the same amount of dried sage, thyme, summer savory, or basil.
Greek oregano vs oregano?
Greek oregano, a member of the mint family, tends to be the tastiest and earthiest, compared to milder Italian oregano or spicier Turkish when comparing Mediterranean varieties. There is also Mexican oregano that has notes of citrus and mild licorice, as it is a relative of lemon verbena. But of course, use the variety of oregano that suits your needs!
