Great Suggestion!

Thanks to one of our readers for a great suggestion. Gloria asked if we could add a print icon so readers could print content directly from our newsletter. While we can’t accommodate that request yet (we’re working on it), we did add print-ready links for all our recipes. With one click, you’ll now be able to print Simply Organic recipes. Great idea Gloria! Keep those suggestions coming; we’re always looking for ways to improve our newsletter.

Herbs de ProvenceSeasoning Spotlight — Herbes de Provence

Our spotlight this month is on Herbes de Provence. While a new addition to the Simply Organic line-up, this seasoning has been providing delightful flavor for years.

Background
Herbes de Provence adds a splash of Mediterranean to any dish. There’s no specific blend for the mixture; rather it is typically a combination of herbs sourced from the southeastern region of France. It's commonly made up of aromatic herbs such as thyme, rosemary, basil, tarragon, and lavender flowers.

Uses
Uses for this versatile blend are limitless, but of note is that Herbes de Provence should be added early on in the cooking process, to allow the flavors to meld. Rub or sprinkle on meat, poultry, fish, or tofu before grilling, broiling, baking, or frying. Sprinkle on vegetables such as potatoes before roasting. Add to butter for a seasoned spread, or use to make a salad dressing (see our recipe for Herbed Salad Dressing below).

History
Early on, Herbes de Provence was simply a descriptive term referring to a blend of herbs used in Mediterranean cooking. It began to be commercially sold in the early 1970s.

Next month's Seasoning Spotlight will be about Simply Organic Garlic Powder, which received Clean Eating’s Clean Choice award.

Clean EatingClean Eating Awards – Garlic Powder
 
In Clean Eating’s March/April issue, the publication recognized Simply Organic’s Garlic Powder with a Clean Choice award!
They said, “It’s not easy getting your hands on dried herbs and spices that are non-irradiated and free of additives and fillers, but this company has a line full of them. We love the pure, pungent flavor of this garlic powder in everything from guacamole to tomato sauce, and even sprinkled over homemade pita chips.” We (humbly) agree!
