Eggs work well with soft leaf herbs like basil, sage, tarragon, chervil, dill, chives, parsley and coriander with the last three examples being a fantastic garnish. Dried herbs that work well with eggs include rosemary, thyme, oregano, marjoram and fennel and coriander seed.
You have options when adding herbs to salads, from using fresh soft leafed herbs like basil, lemon balm, mint and sage in the salads. To creating an herb infused oil drizzle, using herby croutons, micro greens, edible flowers or even a compound butter on a potato salad.
Thyme is a Mediterranean herb that has a lot to offer a dish in terms of gentle warmth and an herbaceous aroma. Both dried thyme and fresh can really make the difference between a bit of a boring dish or one with real depth of flavor.
There are some really easy replacements and alternatives for rosemary in your cooking. Some aren’t perfect alternatives, some are just sort of better than nothing flavors. It is better to add something than have a bland meal!
Mint is closely related to basil and therefore basil makes a slightly more peppery and anise replacement. Dried mint works well to replace fresh, with a little bit of adjustment to ratios. Lemon balm is a nice citrus like version of mint and can be tasty in drinks or recipes.
When we replace oregano we can choose to use fresh or dried herbs. Best substitute is marjoram, followed by thyme, rosemary, sage and even dried basil. Often a mix is a good idea with mixed herbs or Italian Seasoning being great.
