Vegetable Seasoning

I created this homemade vegetable seasoning specifically for grilled vegetables but to be honest with you, this makes some unbelievable grilled chicken and fish as well. It is really versatile and simple to use on anything you want to add a little extra zing to. Simply drizzle whatever you’re grilling with a little avocado or olive oil and liberally sprinkle on the homemade vegetable seasoning.

This spice blend only makes enough for 1 large batch of grilled veggies. If you want to make a bunch to store, I recommend multiplying the recipe and storing the seasoning in glass airtight containers (spice bottles or even a mason jar are good options). I like to save my old spice jars and wash them out, that way when I have homemade rubs prepared I can store them easily.

Once stored nice and secure, this mixture will last several months in your pantry. It is a great one to make and keep on hand.

Ingredients for Grilled Vegetable Seasoning

Here’s what you’ll need to grab from your pantry to make this seasoning.

  • Coarse kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Dried parsley
  • Dried dill
  • Ground mustard
  • Whole celery seeds
  • Crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Quick Tip: For homemade spice mixtures, I always try to use coarse ground kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Neither of these things are required, but they will elevate your rubs to a more gourmet flavor and appearance.

    I had my Intro. to Culinary students make this rub to use with the vegetables they cook in class. Now they are asking, where is the vegetable rub. This recipe is Tony the Tiger GRRReatttt!

  2. Cat says:

    Can this work for instant ramen

    1. Hey Grill Hey says:

      I don’t see why not!

  3. Steve says:

    Think this would work with sweet potatoes?

  4. Albert says:

    Very tasty seasoning. Used it in the buffalo chicken dip recipe, then took some and made a veggie dip by mixing the entire recipe’s worth into 16 oz of sour cream. In the future I will reduce the salt amount by half when making the dip, but otherwise it worked really well. Next up, putting this on some zucchini and summer squash!

    Looking for something different for seasoning mixed vegetables that I’m getting ready to pickle/can. What do you think? This sounds good. Would you try this? Thanks

  6. Candace Franz says:

    Some of your rubs and seasoning recipes have a short shelf life of 1 – 3 months. The shelf life of the ingredients to make them is typically 1- 3 years. If my ingredients are well within their shelf life is the actual mix shelf stable for longer than the recommended 1 – 3 months? Thanks – I love making your rubs and plan to give some as Christmas treats.

      You are correct!
