Thyme to Savor Some Herbs!
Posted on July 25, 2017 | General News
Want to add oomph to your cooking? Herbs are the answer! Whether you have a planter full of herb plantings from our DCFM nursery growers or you pick up a bunch at Wednesday Market, a sprinkling of chopped fresh herbs can inspire and transform your dishes and beverages. Here are some of our favorite uses:
CILANTRO: Cilantro calls to mind salsa, salsa, salsa! Whether you love a classic pico de gallo or you want to mix it up with a roasted tomato salsa, salsa makes a quesadilla a meal, adds flavor to grilled meats, and can be used the next day in fried egg-topped chilaquiles.
MINT: There is no substitute for fresh mint! Freshly chopped mint is the key to the 'best' mint chocolate chip ice cream, roasted beets with fresh mint and lemon, and Israeli couscous salad with mint and scallions.
