Once you read about helpful herbs, you might be unsure of how to make them tasty additions to your meals. How would parsley taste with peas? How do you use peppermint for something other than tea? These unanswered questions can leave us shrugging our shoulders and returning to our herbless meals. This is unacceptable.
To solve this frustrating problem, here are 10 herbs and some foods that go really well with them.
Tip: If you find yourself coughing up phlegm, rosemary can loosen chest congestion, making phlegm easier to expel. Rosemary can also soothe a sore throat, a common result from coughing spells.
So what pairs up well with rosemary? Any meal with white beans, potatoes, polenta (a paste or dough made from cornmeal,) and apples!
Tip: You only need two teaspoons of fresh oregano during menstruation to reduce or eliminate cramps by relaxing uterine muscles to prevent painful contractions.
You can make any Italian dish more awesome with this herb. It goes great with mushrooms, tomatoes, olives and squash.
Tip: This herb is very effective in killing harmful intestinal bacteria such as E. coli.
Dill is a great addition to any salad as an easy pairing with cucumbers, beets, carrots and greens.
Tip: Spice up your life with cayenne to relieve sinus congestion and pressure. This is a great herb for spring allergies.
Cayenne goes well with soups, and many ingredients that go in soups like leafy greens, beans, and rice. You could probably even add it to chili.
Tip: We don’t always wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Sometimes we wake up with the wrong substances in our body. Cilantro can help to remove heavy metal build up in your body that causes fatigue, joint pain and depression.
Cilantro is a nice addition to South American dishes because it pairs nicely with avocados, corn and black beans. It even goes well with curries.
Tip: Tummy troubles are naturally remedied by 40% with peppermint.
Surprisingly, adding peppermint to eggplant, tomatoes, melon and green peas can really enhance your eating experience. Give it a try!
7. Curry Powder
Tip: Consuming curry powder can reduce joint and muscle pain as effectively as prescription medications.
Curry powder can give bland food some character, so don’t hesitate to add them to lentils, rice cauliflower and spinach.
Tip: Parsley will relieve a bloated stomach by preventing salt from being reabsorbed into your bodily tissue.
Parsley is a good pair up with carbs like pasta and grains. It is also a great herb to use with tomatoes and onions. Try adding parsley to your next spaghetti dish.
Tip: This little leaf has properties that can improve your mood in as little as three days.
Basil, like oregano and even parsley, is a great addition to Italian inspired dishes. Don’t hesitate to include basil with tomatoes, pizza, pasta and olives.
Tip: Nausea is naturally cured with a dose of ginger. It works better than motion-sickness drugs.
Ginger is great with potatoes, miso soup, rice and pears.
