Gumbo Seasoning Mix


When I left for college,one of the first recipes my mother gave me over the phone was for Gumbo...but... she didn't use this variety of seasonings and spices. These have only made her recipe taste more like itself.


* 2 whole bay leaves
* 1½ tablespoon salt
* 2 teaspoons paprika
* 1½ teaspoons white pepper
* 1½ teaspoons garlic powder
* 1 teaspoon onion powder
* ½ teaspoon ground red pepper
* ¾ teaspoon dry mustard
* ¾ teaspoon black pepper
* ½ teaspoon dried thyme leaves
* ¼ teaspoon dried oregano leaves
* 1 tablespoon Tabasco Sauce
* 3 tablespoons gumbo file
* 1 tablespoon minced garlic
* 2 teaspoons dried basil
*2 cups onions (minced in food processor)
*2 cups finely diced celery
*2 cups finely diced bell pepper


Mix all dry ingredients together for use in gumbo recipe. Bell pepper, celery and onions can also be combined in a small bowl prior to use.
