Herb Recipes

Herb recipes will help you add taste to your food without adding salt.

Scientists destroy whole rain forests writing about the evils of salt and fats - by using herbs as a condiment, you can cut down on salt and fats to add flavour to your food.

Many fresh herbs contain valuable vitamins as well, so we're doing ourselves no end of good - personally, I subscribe to the 80/20 rule - if I eat healthily for 80% of the time, I give myself carte blanche to eat and drink what I like for the rest of the time:-)

There are over 60 recipes on this page - scroll down to see the photos and click where you like :-)

You will find that I use dried herbs as well as fresh - not in all recipes though, you can't make pesto with dried basil for instance - but I do not subscribe to the snob element that think you should only use fresh.

Companies spend millions on researching the best methods of drying herbs - our ancestors used drying as a method of preservation for all sorts of things - we haven't all got the time to grow or the money to buy fresh plants - dried is better than nothing.

You can preserve herbs or their flavour in many ways - freeze, dry (traditionally or in the microwave) add to oils or butters - The Herb Guide will tell you how to do all those things.
