Posted On: June 11, 2019

Few things make us as happy as fresh herbs and vegetables. We can’t get enough! What’s best is when these two worlds collide. We see that magic happen every day in our line of work.

A common question we get here at Beetnik is, “What are the best spices for vegetables?” We have a few go-to ideas we’d like to share. Veggie and herb pairings do not have to be complicated. We’ll make it simple with our guide below. (You might want to bookmark this page now for easy access later in the kitchen!)

7 Best Combinations of Herbs and Vegetables to Try

Lucky number 7! You’re going to love these suggestions regarding spices and herbs for vegetables. We just know it.

You don’t have to leave the produce aisle or your garden to look for seasoning. Keep it all fresh and organic. And don’t miss another important guide on our blog: read our article about how to eat organic on a budget. We think you’ll learn a thing or two.

But, onto our herbs for vegetables! We’ll give you four herb options for every veggie below. But we strongly encourage you to taste the freshness with maybe a little salt and pepper at first. You may cherish the vegetables’ core flavor above all. Then begin adding herbs for extra flair, if needed.

Can’t forget herbs for cabbage, right? Give these a whirl:

  • Bay leaf
  • Fennel
  • Ginger
  • Chives

Tip: Cabbage is so versatile. Eat it raw in slaws. Have it stuffed and steamed. Or enjoy it braised with another beloved veggie. We sometimes like it with our stir-fry in the place of rice.

4. Herbs that Go with Cauliflower

Get down with some herbs for cauliflower:

  • Carraway
  • Tarragon
  • Cumin
  • Coriander

Tip: Because of its super mild flavor, cauliflower can be a variety of things. Whether you’re in the mood for spicy, sweet and sour, or earthy, cauliflower won’t disappoint.

If you haven’t had cauliflower rice, make some. All it takes is a food processor and a little love. We dig its couscous texture. It also makes great pizza crust. Season it based on your appetite. It works well with just about anything!
