Growing Herbs in Your Kitchen
For some of us, we might not have plenty of space to grow anything in our own home. We might live in apartment or tiny houses with no garden or backyard and sometimes not even a space for massive plant pots.
If you have a free corner in your kitchen, chances are you will be able to grow some herbs there since herbs don’t need much space. And most importantly, you don’t really need green fingers to grow herbs at home!
There are some herbs that we recommend you to grow in the kitchen. You can use these herbs for your cooking, as a garnish or to bring great scent to your space. Let’s have a look at the herbs that you can grow in your kitchen.
Basil is one of those versatile herbs you can incorporate into many dishes in cooking. Especially favoured in Italian cooking, the fresh anise-like flavor and intense clove-like aroma is suited for those meaty pizzas or tomato based pasta. On top of that, basil contains great vitamins from A, K and C as well as magnesium, iron, potassium and calcium.
Rosemary is another favourite of ours for its pungent aroma. Insects and mosquitos hate it, thus it is very useful as a natural repellant! We grow some in our kitchen and put a row of rosemary plant in front of our front door just to keep those insects and mosquitos away. Apart from its benefit as a natural repellant, rosemary is also believed to relieve indigestion, neutralizing bad breath and relieving pain. When used as aromatherapy, it can help to clear the mind, reduce anxiety and relieve stress from the traffic jam!
This next herb has a distinct aroma that some people love, yet some totally hate. Which one are you? If you ask us, we are definitely the lover. Everything from its seeds to its leaves can be used for cooking and it does bring a memorable flavour when eaten. Coriander is especially high in antioxidant and vitamin C as well as other vitamins. Most of the time we love to put it in our cooking to freshen up dishes like tacos and salsas. Yum!
