Cooking Corner- Herbaceous Falafel

Written By: Ellen Kleven  |  Posted: Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Just last week I planted some seeds in hopes of starting some plants for this year's garden. Among the seeds planted are some common herbs:  Basil, parsley, oregano, sage, thyme, and dill. I will probably buy a few more herbs from a local nursery to augment the selection I already have, as well as bringing up the potted perennials that are currently hibernating in the basement. Not only do I enjoy watching plants grow, I enjoy freshly picked sprigs of mint or parsley and the savory pesto made from basil gathered just minutes before use. I would like to expand my cooking repertoire this summer to include more dishes that require large amounts of various herbs and spices. They not only taste wonderful, they are good for our health!

            Let me encourage you to try your hand at a few herbs too. Find a good book at your local library about growing herbs, choose the herbs that interest you most and either set aside a place to plant them in-ground or buy a few medium-sized pots in which to grow them. You'll find the price unbeatable (check out the supermarket price for fresh sage or rosemary next time you go) and the flavor and quality is superior. They can add so much to various dishes.
