Cajun Seasoning Mix

This year I’m doing a low-amine Cajun Thanksgiving. For my Cajun seasoning rub, I didn’t want to buy my own. I went and bought the freshest, organic spices I could find (at Whole Foods), and reduced the cayenne by half. I would not necessarily call this Cajun Seasoning Mix “low amine,” since there is a fair amount of paprika, red pepper flakes, and cayenne. However, when used in beans, rice, or as a rub, it’s such a low proportion of base ingredient to spices that I don’t see it causing many problems. Use as your diet will allow.

Cajun Seasoning Mix

Cajun Seasoning Mix

2 tsp salt (I use a half-and-half salt substitute)

2 tsp garlic powder

2 1/2 tsp paprika

1 tsp ground black pepper

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp cayenne powder

1 1/4 tsp oregano

1 1/4 tsp dried thyme

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

  • Mix all together and store in an airtight container.


Very Low Amine: salt, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, thyme

Very High Amine: paprika, cayenne, red pepper flakes
