Herb Recipes

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 herb recipes on this page - scroll down to see the photos and click where you like :-)


Miracle-Gro Aerogarden with Gourmet Herb Seed Kit

Indoor herb gardening is becoming very much the rage these days. You can just snip a few herbs off the stems, grab a tomato or chop a chilli while you're cooking. 

The indoor gardens look gorgeous in the house too with their lush green foliage and gentle background light.

The most trusted name in the market is Miracle-Gro and their flagship is the 6 (UK) or 7 (US) pod model - click on the flag to find them for your country. 


You will find that I use dried herbs as well as fresh - not in all herb 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.
