Herbs and How to Use Them

Use herbs to enhance your meals and give you an extra boost of vitamins and minerals.

Would you like to use herbs but are not exactly sure how to go about it. If so, I am going to tell you all you need to know to make tasty herb flavored dishes. Dried herbs are more pungent so use less than fresh.

  1. Basil:

    Tastes of mint, anise, pepper and cloves, Use it for pesto, any vegetable, eggs, cheese, salad or soup.

  2. Oregano:

    Tastes of pepper and marigold, Use in tomato sauce, pizza, fish and anything that takes garlic.

  3. Parsley:

    Green grassy taste, Use in boiled potatoes, rice, pasta, eggs, salads. Try it on different dishes.

  4. Mint:

    Refreshing cool taste, Use it with Lamb, eggs, fruit salad, green peas and iced tea.

  5. Dill:

    Lemony taste, Salmon, potato dishes, mayonnaise based salads.

  6. Rosemary:

    Tastes piney, bittersweet. Use on lamb, beans, poultry and pork.

  7. Tarragon:

    Tastes bitter sweet and peppery, Use it in chicken, fish, sea food and mayonnaise based salads.

  8. Thyme:

    Pungent lemony taste, Use in soups. poultry, soups, beans, and stuffing.

  9. Cilantro:

    Tastes grassy, citrus, Use in Tex Mex dishes, Thai curry, Asian soups, chimichurri sauces.

  10. Chives:

    Mild delicate member of the onion family. Use in in eggs, salads, sauces.

  11. Sage:

    Strong earthy flavor, Use in poultry, stuffing, cheese, breads.

You can use herbs for many other foods than I have listed here. Experiment and find the flavors you like best. I use basil in almost everything I cook, and I use sage in all my stuffing. I sprinkle parsley on vegetables and salads. I put oregano and basil in my sauces. Those are the herbs I use most, but I use herbs at every meal I cook. Herbs will enhance all your meals, and also give you an extra boost of vitamins and minerals.
