Meals with home-grown herbs

This Spring, Ken convinced me to plant herbs rather than flowers in the window boxes of our flat. I was dubious – I didn’t think they would do well in that position. But I was wrong and our window box herbs have been growing like crazy. We have chives, mint, oregano, rosemary, sage, parsley, coriander and thyme.

So this weekend, we decided to start cooking with the herbs. For dinner we made:

  • Chicken with herbs
  • Carrots with chives
  • Garlic and parsley potatoes

For lunch the next day, we made:

  • Carrot and coriander soup

Chicken breasts covered in olive oil, salt and pepper and chopped herbs (oregano, thyme, and sage) and baked in the oven at about 180 C for 20-25 minutes

Fried in butter and tossed with chives

Cubed potatoes, rinsed in water, dried, then fried in a little oil until crisp. Toss with garlic and parsley chopped together
