Herbs de Provence Recipe - A Classic French
Blend of Fresh or Dried Ingredients

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)

Ingredients: (makes about 10 tablespoons)

3 tbsp dried thyme
2 tbsp dried chervil
2 tbsp dried marjoram
2 tbsp dried basil
1 tbsp lavender (optional)
4 tsp dried rosemary

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Simply add the herbs to a bowl and stir together

Store in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight and use within 2-3 months

Note: When using in your cooking, crush or crumble the herbs into your dish. This will help release their essential oils and flavours.

Lavender Note:
 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.
