Goriana - for that mix I would most definitely use garlic, sage, oregano or tarragon or even rosemary, crushed mustard seeds (or some coarse grain mustard, but that usually has loads of sugar and some salt), some good dark balsamic vinegar, maybe some good soy sauce (there shouldn't be any ingredients other than water, soy beans, wheat, salt, at the very most). It's a mix that needs some spice as well as herbs. Also maybe some fresh lemon or fresh lime juice (or a grating of zest). If you like pepper, which I don't, then a good fresh grinding of black pepper (or be decadent and use the pink or the green peppercorns that can be bought now). If you like a spiciness, add freshly (finely) diced chilli pepper, or a dash of Tabasco, or a sprinkle of powdered cayenne.
I also like to use a stock cube - but then, I don't use salt as a seasoning. and it depends on how much, if any, soy sauce I use.
Ring the changes - the same meal can be changed just by using different seasonings. Experiment and have fun.
