Herbes de Provence

These are the herbs I grew to make my own herbes de Provence: mint, oregano, marjoram, lavender, rosemary, summer savory, tarragon, fennel, bay leaves and thyme. I didn't have any chervil, which has a mild licorice flavour. Basic Recipe:

Ingredients: 1 tablespoon thyme 1 tablespoon chervil 1 tablespoon rosemary 1 tablespoon summer savory 1 teaspoon lavender 1 teaspoon tarragon 1 teaspoon marjoram 1/2 teaspoon oregano 1/2 teaspoon mint 2 powdered or chopped bay leaves

Preparation: Mix together all of the ingredients and store in a tightly sealed container. Makes about 1/3 cup herb mix.

The herbs are so good on sauteed mushrooms!

and in vegetarian lentil soup, chili, salad dressing, potato salads, omelets, roasted garlic pizza, and vegetarian cassoulet:

Have fun experimenting in recipes using herbes de provence, you can't go wrong!
