Here are some simple and quick ways to use your herbs.
- Chop fresh rosemary leaves, garlic, squeeze a lemon and drizzle some
olive oil to marinate chicken, steaks, pork chops, tenderloin, or lamb
before grilling or roasting for amazing flavor.
- Mix fresh herbs with cream cheese or goat cheese for a quick, elegant
snack spread. Use lighter herbs such as parsley, basil, chives, dill or
marjoram. Add zesty sun-dried tomatoes for more flavor.
- Add fresh herbs to a blender or food processor with shallots, 2 tbsp.
vinegar or lemon juice, 1 tsp. dijon mustard. While blender is running
drizzle 1/2 - 3/4 cup olive oil until well emulsified for a fresh dressing
for grilled vegetables or salads.
- Bundle fresh herbs such as rosemary, thyme, oregano, parsley and
marjoram with kitchen string and simmer in canned chicken stock with a
peeled onion and garlic clove for quick flavorful soup bases. Add
vegetables, chicken, pasta or rice for a healthy low cal meal.
