Cajun Seasoning – Make Your Own

Cajun Seasoning – Make Your Own

My husband was shopping around for a good cajun seasoning mix.

We read labels.

We found sugar.

We found additives.

We decided to make our own.

I compared a few online recipes and decided to try the one from

Here’s what you need:

  • salt
  • garlic powder
  • paprika
  • ground black pepper
  • onion powder
  • cayenne pepper
  • dried oregano
  • dried thyme
  • red pepper flakes (optional)

Depending on how many servings you want, you can modify the amounts required. I wanted to make approximately one cup, so here are the quantities I used (teaspoons):

  • 8 salt
  • 8 garlic powder
  • 10 paprika
  • 4 ground black pepper
  • 4 onion powder
  • 4 cayenne pepper
  • 5 dried oregano
  • 5 dried thyme
  • 2 red pepper flakes (optional)

Stir all the ingredients together and store in an airtight container.

I have an old blender that I can use with a mason jar in lieu of the original glass jar. I put all of the ingredients into the mason jar and blended the mixture until it became a very fine powder. If you make it, please let me know how it turns out.
