What are the benefits of herbs ?
Most of us are familiar with herbs; in fact, they are used sparingly in many staple dishes to add flavour and depth. But what many people do not realise is that they also add nutritional goodness.
Herbs are the leaf part of a plant which can be added to cooking either in fresh or dried form. Any other part of the plant is referred to as a spice.
