EVERY DAY: AN EASY – FAST – AND CHEAP – RECIPE THAT SUITS EVERYONE
In our kitchen there are several ways to save: in the choice of ingredients, recipes, but also by growing essential herbs on our balcony.
To start to get a little familiar with this procedure, I recommend starting with four plants such as chili, coriander, mint, and thyme.
Let’s now see the different types of herbs and their use in the kitchen:
HERBS FOR EVERYTHING: PARSLEY AND CORIANDER
Choose between parsley, a fresh and simple smell that can go well with any dish, or coriander if you like spicy or curry dishes.
DELICATE HERBS: MINT AND BASIL
Mint and basil have a fresh and pleasant taste that is well suited to Mediterranean cuisine, pasta dishes, light soups and homemade pesto.
STRONG HERBS: THYME, ROSEMARY E SAUGE
Start with thyme, rosemary and sage. Rosemary is very resistant but it takes a long time to prepare it. Sage is deliciously simple and grows by adapting to the pot in which it is found. Thyme gives its best on a sunny windowsill and can be collected and cut into pieces very quickly.
The red pepper plant will give you great satisfaction: even a small pot on your window sill will give you a nice harvest (hundreds in August, when the plant is at it’s maximum of flowering). These chili plants are seasonal and are you can easily find them at a very low price both in supermarkets and in greenhouses.
