Herb(ie) Fully Loaded
Basil, Cilantro, and Dill loaded into 2 little loaves.
#38 Herb Bread
My hands smell all herb-y. My new obsession is fresh herbs. Holy cow, these things are amazing! I have always loved cooking with dried herbs, but using fresh herbs has opened up a whole new world of flavor. Ok, enough gushing...
This bread was super-easy. And DAIRY-FREE!
As with any recipe with mix-ins. I had a little fight with the dough and herbs to get them to be friends. The most time-consuming part of this bread was de-stemming and ripping up the herbs.
I used about half the amount of herbs that were called for. I added them a little bit at a time so that when the inevitable happened and the full amount would stay with the dough I wouldn't have wasted organic fresh herbs. Note: This was the first time I have used dill in anything. Unsurprisingly, it kind of smells like pickles.
As you can see, I got close to burning these cuties even though I took them out 3 or 4 minutes early.
It tastes so good that I did a little dance while I was chewing. Of course that may have had a little to do with the fact that the "I Dream of Jeannie" theme was playing on the TV. Then I had hiccups for a few minutes.
I couldn't find any cool videos from Herbie movies. I found clips from Herbie Fully Loaded, but I really didn't like that movie and I didn't want to torture you.
Now I'm gonna go work off some of these tasty, tasty carbs!
