Easy! Used fresh basil from our CSA box and also used a fresh bunch of small organic carrots which were steamed whole. Very sweet carrots with the intense flavor of fresh basil. I did not stir the herbs into the mixture but also garnished on top. Very little salt and freshly grated black pepper. Reviewed for Veg Tag/May.

This was delicious! We used fresh tarragon. We didn't have any parsley, so we added a bit more tarragon than it called for. The tarragon added a wonderful, delicate taste. I don't know that I would add parsley next time I make it. I liked it so much without, and tarragon has such a delicate flavor, that I think I'll just stick with the tarragon.

I cut into long match sticks. So it didn`t take long to cook. For the herbs I used only fresh parsley. Didn`t need the salt and pepper. Thanks for a delish side.
