Homemade Vegetable Seasoning
This Homemade Vegetable Seasoning is totally perfect for grilling up all of your favorite vegetables. Flavorful herbs and robust spices come together in a simple blend that elevates everything you sprinkle it on. This rub is made up of ingredients you’ll almost always have on hand, so it comes together quickly and easily.
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.
