Easy, Healthy Recipes with Herbs
Those of us with herb gardens are eager to start trying easy, healthy recipes that include herbs! Cooking with herbs can add great health benefits to your meals as well as make them even more tasty, so check out these delicious herb recipes.
Whether you’re looking for savory rosemary recipes or a mint dish to keep your breath fresh on date night, we’ve got the herb recipes you’re looking for! Even if you simply want to spice up a typical dish like omelets or a salad, try these recipes for an herbal twist. And if you don’t have all the herbs the recipes call for, don’t worry—try a bit of experimenting! Once you get the hang of cooking with herbs, you’ll know which herbs work perfectly together (and which you might want to put aside for next time!).
When using delicate herbs such as cilantro, parsley, and chives, add them 1 to 2 minutes before the end of cooking or sprinkle on top when a dish is served. Hardy herbs, including marjoram, thyme, and rosemary, can be added during cooking, without fear that they will lose flavor or become chewy.
