Rosemary leaves are used as a flavoring in foods, such as stuffing and roast lamb, pork, chicken, and turkey. Fresh or dried leaves are used in traditional Mediterranean cuisine. They have a bitter, astringent taste and a characteristic aroma which complements many cooked foods. Herbal tea can be made from the leaves. When roasted with meats or vegetables, the leaves impart a mustard-like aroma with an additional fragrance of charred wood that goes well with barbecued foods.
Butternut squash soup is one of the easiest, most flavorful, and creamy soups to make! You can stir in a little coconut oil just before serving, if you enjoy a slight sweet coconut flavor. Feel free to skip it if you are not a fan!
