Tips for cooking with Fresh Herbs
- Add some of your favorites on top of a salad, pasta or rice bowl! We recommend trying cilantro, basil, or, arugula!
- Add fresh herbs to dishes with shorter cooking time, or towards the end of cooking for the most flavor.
- Cut, chop, or grind leaves for a great and more potent flavor.
- Dry herbs are stronger than fresh herbs. For longer-lasting herbs, dry out your own.
