More Herbs, Less Salt Day

basil1

August 29 is officially More Herbs, Less Salt Day. I adore herbs and I wish I’d done a herb garden instead of our vegetable garden. I suppose it’s still not too late for that. I’ve grown rosemary, mint, coriander, basil, parsley, sage, tarragon and thyme. They’re all pretty sad looking at the moment, but hopefully this spring will give them magic beanstalk powers.

My favourite herb is coriander and I can eat that stuff like spinach. The Koala loathes it though so I don’t cook with it but rather, dump it on top of my own plate as a garnish. Luckily it’s the kind of herb that works fine for that.

What is your favourite herb? Are there any herbs you dislike?

In honour of More Herbs, Less Salt Day, here are five of my favourite herb-filled recipes. All of these are particularly simple to prepare. Just click in the images below to be redirected to the recipes. Enjoy!

  1. Herbs are the best! I love basil and coriander the most, though thyme definitely gets a look in for its rustic deliciousness. Recently discovered pineapple sage, which smells like candy, quite the revelation 😀

I love your comments! Your comments are like extra melted cheese on top.
