Creole seasoning is commonly used in New Orleans. It is a combination of spices that livens up any dish and it can be used in everyday cooking. Some Cajun dishes also have a similar seasoning mix.
You can make this seasoning for future use or you can bottle it up nicely and give it away as gifts.
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons dried oregano leaves
2 tablespoons dried sweet basil
1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon white pepper
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon celery seed
5 tablespoons sweet paprika
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. You can also blend it in a food processor to make the seasoning finer and to allow the ingredients to blend well. Place the seasoning in a bottle or air tight container.
