 This easy-to-make Greek spice rub can completely change the flavour meal in a matter of minutes and always has a spot in my pantry.


  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • a 5cm sprig of fresh rosemary of its leaves, chopped finely (approx 1/4 tsp)
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp sea salt flakes
  • 1/2 tsp freshly cracked pepper
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp sumac


  1. Pop all the ingredients in a mortar and pestle and gently grind for 10 seconds.
  2. Job done. Go forth and sprinkle that Greek spice rub everywhere!


 Sprinkle my Greek seasoning mix over roast vegetables, mix it into unsalted butter for an easy roast chicken rub, season a roast lamb leg, or dust the top of a grilled vegetable pizza for a Mediterranean kick.
