Creating a homemade Herbs de Provence recipe couldn't be easier! Simply mix together a few fresh or dried ingredients and you're set. And this famous blend, hailing from the Provence region of France, is great when added to many dishes such as grilled meat and fish, stews and casseroles. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)
The lavender is optional as it's one of those ingredients that you either love or hate, so it's up to you if you use it.
Ingredients: (makes about 10 tablespoons)
3 tbsp dried thyme
2 tbsp dried chervil
2 tbsp dried marjoram
2 tbsp dried basil
4 tsp rosemary
2 tbsp lavender (optional)
tbsp = tablespoon
Note: When using in your cooking, crush or crumble the herbs into your dish. This will help release their essential oils and flavours.
