So here we are with another heroic round up of recipes from this months Herbs On Saturday challenge. I am flabbergasted that there are so many – 37 to be exact and each and every one of them is wonderful. You guys sure are a talented lot!
I have been very impressed by all the recipes; lots of you have been out foraging this month and wild garlic has played a big part of many of your entries. There have also been lots of more traditional herbs inventively used in many mouthwatering dishes from Prawn Stuffed Squid to Red Lentil Dosas to name only a couple.
I would just like to say a big thank you to all of you who took the time to enter and all of you who popped by at Delicieux and introduced yourselves. I have enjoyed hosting immensely and I have discovered some wonderful blogs for the first time and I look forward to continuing to enjoy your wonderful creativity and cooking.
June Herbs On Saturday will be back with the lovely Karen from Lavender & Lovage so keep your eyes peeled over there for more information on that. She will also be announcing the winner of this months challenge and the prize will be The Little Book Of Herb Tips by William Fortt.
So, without further ado, I shall begin my epic round up for the month of May:
