DRIED BASIL LEAVES
Basil Leaves are a highly fragrant plant whose leaves are used as a seasoning herb for many different types of foods. Basil has become one of the most recognizable herbs ever since pesto, the mixture of basil, pine nuts and Parmesan cheese, has become popular. Basil has round leaves that are oftentimes pointed. They are green in color, although some varieties feature hints of red or purple. Basil looks a little like peppermint, which is not surprising since they belong to the same plant family.
You may overlook parsley as a healthy vegetable because you likely consider it a garnish rather than a nutrient-dense food. According to Michael T. Murray, Joseph Pizzorno and Lara Pizzorno, authors of “The Encyclopedia of Healing Foods,” people have been eating parsley as a vegetable for more than 2,500 years, and have used it for medicinal purposes for even longer. Both dried and fresh parsley have a valuable place in your diet, although they contain different nutrients.
DRIED OREGANO FLAKES
Dried oregano has a stronger flavor than fresh ones. The chemicals that give the herb its unique flavor are thymol, carvacrol, ocimene, limonene, pinene, and caryophyllene. Apart from their culinary usage, these herbs have been used in medicines for thousands of years with a number of health benefits.
DRIED THYME LEAVES
Thyme is widely used in Italian cooking – where it is known as “timo, pronounced “tee-mo” – and even more so in French cuisine. When cooking with thyme be sure to add it early in the process so that the oils and flavor have time to be released. Fabulous on poultry! Thyme also is a great complement for many vegetables, including tomatoes and roasted potatoes. Many grilled and oven-roasted fish recipes, such as sea bass, call for thyme.
DRIED DILL WEED
Dill has a slight licorice taste, sweet & delicate. It adds a unique flavor to soups, sauces, pickles, salads and many other dishes. The flavor is especially relished with fish and pickled cucumbers, which gives them an exotic spicy taste
