    Herbs de Provence is a French dried herbs mix

    Herbs de Provence comprises dried rosemary, basil, thyme, savory, marjoram. I imported some from France, but it might present a fun challenge to make it from scratch! It’s a savory dried herbs mix which is lovely on pizzas, chicken, grilled food and barbeques.

    Herbs de Provence roasted vegetables recipe

    I was very pleased with the veg haul from my garden this week, so thought I’d roast some.

    Ingredients

    Tomatoes
    Courgettes
    Garlic
    Oil
    Herbs de Provence
    Salt & pepper

    (I held back the French beans in the photo for a risotto)

    Method

    Halve the tomatoes and slice the courgettes – I had roughly equal quantities of each, and enough to cover the bottom of a large oiled baking tray in a single layer.
    Cut a couple of garlic cloves in half and poke them in amongst the veg, then sprinkle on more oil, a generous sprinkle of Herbs de Provence dried herbs, and seasoning.

    I served mine up on the side of a cheesy French bean risotto. The following day I heated it through with tomato passata and made a great pasta sauce. It’s also great stirred through couscous.

    Variation – roast aubergine and peppers with the tomatoes and courgettes and you’ve got a version of ratatouille!
