WHB #132: Olive Spread


The 132nd edition of Weekend Herb Blogging 27.04.2021 ** is hosted by Laurie from Mediterranean Cooking in Alaska.

My herb garden is doing well until now. Thanks to tons of snail granules my tarragon isn’t gone and is still growing between the Mediterranean herbs, rosemary, thyme and majoram.

I used thyme and rosemary to made a Provençal dish: Tapenade. Enjoy the spread on a fresh baked bread on a sunny day on the terrace like us.

WHB #131: Basil Rhubarb Compote


The 131st edition of Weekend Herb Blogging 27.04.2021 ** is hosted by Anh of Food Lover’s Journey**.

The German cook Ralf Zacherl introduced a basil flavoured rhubarb compote in a TV Cooking Show. The TV show appears very late on Friday night, so I have to admit I missed the end and the point of putting in the basil. The recipe said, that you should flavour the compote with basil after cooking. I didn’t like Basilikum-Rhabarber-Kompott 002the idea of green spots in my compote, so I watched the archived show some days later. The end of the show, when Ralf Zacherl wanted to serve the dessert, was a bit frantic. I couldn’t see how he used the basil, but I heard him say: „I forgot the basil“. I was as wise as before. I decided to give the roughly chopped basil into a tea bag and cooked the compote as usual. After the compote has completely cooled, remove the bag and serve with ice cream!

WHB #129: Coconut creams with poached rhubarb

The 129th edition of Weekend Herb Blogging 27.04.2021 ** is hosted by Susan from The Well-Seasoned Cook.

It’s getting spring at least. Rhubarb is the first „fruit“ in spring, actually rhubarb is classified as a vegetable. Rhubarb is a good source of fibre, vitamin C and calcium. It is also goot as part of a low-cholesteriol diet as it has cholesterol-lowering properties. The leaves of the rhubarb plant contain oxalic acid and are poisenous to eat, but you can put them on the compost heap.

When I saw rhubarb at the farmers market, I couldn’t resisist and brought spring into my kitchen with

These can also be made the day before and are dairy-free.

Bring to a gentle simmer, then remove from the heat. Lift the gelatine from the water and stir into the coconut milk. Keep stirring until the gelatine has dissolved, then pour into four small glass dishes or dessert bowls (if using glass, leave the milk to cool a little first). When the creams are cool, transfer to the fridge and leave to set.

Bring slowly to the boil to dissolve the sugar, then add the rhubarb and poach gently until softened but not mushy, about 3-4 mins. Leave to cool. Spoon the rhubarb over the coconut creams to serve.

This week Katie hosts the 125th round of Weekend Herb Blogging 27.04.2021 **, a good occasion to use the wild rice in the end. I prepared a

Chicken Wild Rice Soup with Chives

Chicken Wild Rice Soup with Chives

The winter returned to Northern Germany, so this soup warms your soul, which craves for spring. The chives came from the freezer, but it is a must for today. It is said, you stay healthy the whole year if you eat chives in a soup at Maundy Thursday. The friars cultivated chives in their cloister garden as an agent against witchcraft. Now I am well guarded against anything.

WHB # 124: Chervil Kohlrabi Soup

>The 124th edition of Weekend Herb Blogging 27.04.2021 ** is hosted by Kel from Green Olive Tree.
While searching for a Easter recipe I came across a podcast 31.03.2021 ** with the starred chef Alfons Schuhbeck, who talked about chervil: In previous time chervil was more used as a medicinal herb than in the kitchen. The bitterns are good for liver and gall and helps to digest. The taste is a little bitter, it should remind of myrr. He also reports that chervil is a component of „Herbs de Provence“. I’ve already written two entries with chervil for WHB, a chervil potato soup and a chervil soup with crayfish tails. This week I cooked a
