21 Recipes to Make With All Those Herbs You Grew

At-home herb gardens are truly wonderful. Fresh herbs on-hand for anything you could possibly imagine? It’s pretty great, guys. But the problem that comes along with (successfully) growing herbs or just, you know, buying more than you needed for a recipe, is that you oftentimes will find that you have many, many more herbs than you know what to do with. So how do you keep your herbs from going bad (or from taking over the garden)? That’s right, you cook with them.

If you’re not used to cooking with a lot of fresh herbs, it can take a minute to figure out how they can be used. But, luckily, this isn’t something you have to do on your own. Whether you have copious amounts of basil, dill, mint, or more on your hands, one of these 21 recipes we’ve rounded up will help you make the most of your abundance of herbs.
