Home cooks will discover how fresh herbs not only fill the flavour gap but also provide many healing and holistic benefits and will learn to prepare food that contains vitality, is seasonal and indigenous to our environment. Herbs are more than just medicinal plants - they also happen to be delicious! Here you'll find 115 vegetarian recipes - ranging from soups and starters to desserts and beverages.

Sensational recipes include Three-Bean Enchiladas with Green Tomato and Apple Salsa, Fettucine with Fiddleheads in Thyme Vinaigrette, Leek, Onion and Garlic Tart, Autumn Vegetable Paella, and Ginger-Echinacea Jam.
