The Power of Herbs

Herbs – any part of a plant used for culinary, medicinal, or spiritual usage. But here, like talk about the culinary usage. Walking down the supermarket aisle or at your local greenmarket, there are so many varieties of herbs – basil, rosemary, cliantro, mint, sage…Some are bitter, sweet, or tart. We can use herbs for marinating food to bring out natural flavors (calorie free!) and they also have nutritional values that are often overlooked. Depending on the herb, some should be added towards the end of the cooking process (like basil) because they wilt quite quickly, whereas others should be added early, such as woodsy herbs like rosemary. My favorite herb is cliantro, which can be found in many Asian cooking. What’s yours? 🙂
