Les Herbes de Provence, a Recipe for Herbs for Health

Updated: Jul 1

herbes de provence health recipe

Experience the essence of France's Provence with the captivating blend of Herbes de Provence. This classic French seasoning is an enchanting fusion of dried herbs such as thyme, rosemary, oregano and summer savoury. And it is one that you can make yourself, using fresh or dry herbs.

Herbes de Provence add a delightful herbal touch whether used in a marinade, sprinkled over roasted meats, infused into olive oil or to enhance grilled vegetables. This aromatic medley effortlessly elevates the flavours of your culinary creations.

To understand the essence of producing Herbes de Provence, we feel that this video (in French, with sub-titles) gets it right.

While Herbes de Provence are sold dry, there is no reason not to indulge in using fresh herbs if you have them. Chop and crush with a little salt and olive oil, perhaps add some garlic, and use as a marinade.

As part of a nutritionally rich, whole health lifestyle, at The Whole Health Practice we advocate enjoying herbs (and spices) as a regular part of one’s diet. While some herbs (and their polyphenols) have shown positive results for specific health outcomes, enjoy a variety of herbs that work in synergy to promote maximum health. And taste! That's one reason why the Mediterranean diet is so effective at promoting long-term health.

Allow the essence of Herbes de Provence to breathe the intoxicating scents of the French maquis into every dish.
