For as long as I've been cooking, I've always thought a sprinkling of something green and fresh was the perfect way to finish off a dish. Whether it's parsley, cilantro, basil, or something else, that pop of freshness is always a wonderful way to finish off a dish. Herbs are extremely flavourful but did you guys know that they were extremely good for you as well?
I know I've promoted parsley to y'all before as much more than a garnish but the fact is, most herbs are nutritious and full of antioxidants and vitamins beneficial to our bodies. Here's a little breakdown of what you can expect from some of the more popular herbs used in everyday cooking.
As you can see, herbs are so much more than flavourful, pretty garnishes. They contain a variety of body benefitting vitamins, antioxidants, and nutrients. Use as much herbage as you can in the kitchen to add additional nutritional value to your dishes and keep things fresh and flavourful.
