Absolutely. Gourmet Garden can be substituted in any recipe where fresh or dried herb or spice is part of the cooking/flavouring process. Gourmet Garden provides the taste of fresh herbs and spices with all the convenience of dried herbs and spices. Just add according to your own taste.
Just squeeze! Flavours are a very individual choice so go ahead and squeeze a little, taste recipe and then add more. Just like fresh herbs, add according to your own taste.
Use Gourmet Garden Stir-In Pastes the same way you would use fresh herbs and spices, as much or as little to taste. When following a recipe, replace the named herb or spice by just the stir-in paste instead! There is no picking, chopping, or washing! Generally spices are added at the beginning of the cooking process and herbs towards the end and we encourage you to add according to your own taste. Check out our range of delicious, quick & easy weekday meal ideas.
