Autumn recipes

Cooking with Aromatic Herbs
November 09, 2011

Someone sees autumn like a sad season, but there are those who appreciate its quiet melancholy and the beautiful colors of nature.

AutumnAlthough summer is my favourite season, I think that autumn is sweet, temperatures are not too cold and... I must confess that I love the rich and hearty autumnal meals.

There are many recipes already published here on Erbe in Cucina - Cooking with Herbs that I prepare often for my family, and there are others that I think to prepare again with all the autumn ingredients: pumpkin, broccoli, cauliflower, pineapple, nuts… I was reading this blog looking for inspiration, and I decided to publish in one post all the typical autumn recipes.

Sage and rosemary

Autumn aromatic herbs

During autumn you can use aromatic herbs stored in the summer, or still harvest some sage, rosemary, thyme, mint, marjoram and chives.
In addition, parsley, garden cress and fresh coriander from the autumn sowings can already be harvested.
