Good Examples of Herbs in Recipe Dishes

I found a very knowledgeable Auntie Beryl who gives some good ideas on a few recipes dishes where the use of herbs is just as important as the main ingredients. The site is basically as online shop, but the information and general tips on herbs is very good. Well worth a visit to the Plantbox site if you want a quick guide to a particular herb.

It also gives brief, but exacting information on gardening tips for herbs. Again very simple and very easy to understand and take on board.

To give you a taste of some of the recipe ideas, there are three recipes from the site are given here below:

Meet Auntie Beryl!

Bake a whole soft cheese with rind, in it's box (discard any wrapping) in a medium oven for 15 minutes. Take off lift and cut a large cross through the top. Peel back the quarters of rind and sprinkle over a handful of chopped CHIVES, THYME & PARSLEY. Serve with pitta or breadsticks.

Fry chicken breasts or thighs in 1 tbsp of chopped TARRAGON with large knob of butter. Cook for 5 minutes each side until golden. Add small carton of coconut cream and cook, covered over a moderate heat for 5 - 10 minutes (or until cooked), turning once and basting occasionally. Season and add another 1 tbsp of chopped TARRAGON for garnish.


Lay out 2/3 slices of smoked pancetta, slightly overlapping, top with a few SAGE leaves and season. Lie the chicken breast at one end and wrap in the pancetta tightly. Saute in a hot pan until pancetta crispy and chicken cooked in middle.
