Herbes de Provence
If you checked out EcoRicoTV this week, you saw the “Caramelized Brussels Sprouts” video. Super delish vegan goodness seasoned with a blend of herbs called Herbes de Provence. My mouth is watering, as I write. One of our viewers asked a great question: “What is Herbes de Provence?” So, inspired, I wrote this column.
Herbes de Provence… is a mixture of dried herbs, which are typically used in Southern French cooking. Hence, the name meaning “herbs from Provence, France”. Of course, one can add whatever one wants to the blend, but typical herbs used in the region include thyme, basil, savory, marjoram and fennel.
