Herb blend for Instant flavour

A wooden board with a jar of Bec's herb blend on it's side and spilling out over the board.

Here’s a cheeky little herb blend I’ve been playing with a fair bit lately.  I think the traditional Italian Herb blend is a little too heavy on oregano for anything but Italian food.

I was making this in bulk for my Persian Feta.   One night I was feeling a bit lazy.  It was wet and I couldn’t be bothered going down to the cooking school to fill some of my empty herb jars.  So, I grabbed a Persian Feta herb blend jar and sprinkled it over lamb chops.  Now I’m using it in all sorts of recipes.

Classes if you are local (Melbourne) or Zooms from anywhere šŸ™‚

I’ve added the herb blend to the recipe card below. 

What can you use it in? You can use it in your Persian Feta (we have an online course for this) or consider it with these other tasty recipes;

I could go on, but where could YOU use this versatile herb blend?

Where to get Bell Pepper Flakes?

Ok, so it seems that some of you may have had trouble finding these. They truly contribute a delightful fruity sweetness to the mix, so omitting them will make this blend somewhat ordinary, like a typical Italian blend. You could try drying some capsicum at home. Select a red one, slice it thinly, and dry it at a very low temperature in your oven if you don’t have a dehydrator. Once it’s fully dried (yes, completely dry to avoid mould), blitz it in your Thermomix until it reaches the desired size and texture. TaDa! easy peasy.
