herbs in little apartment

I am growing something in my apartment! Green fresh herbs for cooking.


I attended a workshop about cooking with herbs where I learned how to take care of these plants. We also had a tasting of foods “cooked” with herbs: fresh fruit salad with mint is amazing. Mint adds a whole new dimension to the already-delicious salad.


I’m getting pretty sick of my bread/rice/beans routine so these herbs are going to be a wonderful supplement to my vegetarian cooking. Also it is pretty fun having a “pet”. These are probably the only kinds of pets I can keep alive in dental school. One day without water won’t kill these little ones…

I have oregano, rosemary, sage, and parsley. Do you have favorite recipes using these herbs? Please share!
