Chive Recipes

If I had to choose just one herb to use, it would be a tough battle between chives, basil, and thyme, but I think I would go with chives, the most diminutive of the alliums. Most chives have a mild, herbal, onion flavor. Garlic chives have flatter leaves and, not surprisingly, a garlic flavor. Use either as a garnish anytime you want to impart a mild garlic or onion flavor. They're especially good in spring and summer soups, stir-fries, soufflés panini, eggs, and crepes. A list of some favorite ways to use chives are listed below.

Hazelnut & Chard Ravioli Salad

Hazelnut & Chard Ravioli Salad

Plump raviolis tossed with toasted hazelnuts, lemony chard, and caramelized onions are at the heart of this ravioli salad recipe. The colorful platter is finished off with a dusting of cheese, snipped chives, and lemon zest. You can prepare most of the components ahead of time.

How to Dry Herbs

How to Dry Herbs

This is the time of year I find myself drying herbs. In part, it is because I tend to come across special, unusual varietals in the spring and summer - caraway thyme, pineapple sage, fresh coriander. Some will appear for a week or two, then aren't seen again for another year...

Inspired by a loaf of 100% einkorn bread passed to me by a friend (and the cookbook by Silvena Rowe I had in my bag at the time) - a beet caviar. Perfect for slathering - sweet earthiness of roasted beets accented with toasted walnuts, chives, dates, and a swirl of creme fraiche.
