5 Recipes That Give Dill The Attention It SO Deserves February 12, 2018
About time the unsung hero of the herb world took center stage, don’t ya think? Kick off the dill lovin’ by selecting next week’s Creamy Dill Chicken with Roasted Potatoes and Green Beans.
Fragrant basil, sturdy rosemary, and tender tarragon will always hold a coveted spot in our herb-loving hearts, but today we’d like to talk dill. As part of the celery family, this humble herb is prized for its nutrients (hello, vitamins A and C), medicinal uses (helps digestion and prevents insomnia), and unparalleled flavor (deliciously tangy). In fact, 1st century Romans hailed it as a good luck symbol.
And if these five drool-worthy recipes with dill are any indication, your taste buds are in for a treat.
This dish features the key to a crowd-pleasing dinner: sauce! Who could turn down a drizzly dill and Dijon concoction, especially one that’s draped across pan-seared chicken, roasted potatoes, and green beans? No one, we say. At least not anyone we’ve met. So get ready for the creamiest, most showstopping sauce celebration, which you can order now. But in the meantime, get the red carpet-worthy recipe here and watch it all come to life below in the spirit of awards season.
All hail the pita! It holds pretty much anything you put in its roomy pockets, making it among the most spacious of breads. So if you’re going to make a pita sandwich, it better be fully loaded. This one does not disappoint: in addition to rounds of roasted sweet potato, it’s packed with slices of creamy avocado, an herby cucumber salad, pine nuts, and a spicy harissa mayo.

When we want a meal that’s satisfying but still full of wholesome ingredients that we can feel good about, we turn to salmon. The fish is not only nice, firm, and meaty, it’s packed with heart-healthy omega-3s. Add some thoughtfully chosen veggies to the side (we’ve opted for green beans and tomatoes this time), along with a smattering of fresh dill for pizazz, and you’ve got the perfect equation for keeping it quick and easy on hectic weeknights.

Roasting the cauliflower crown whole allows the exterior to develop a deliciously golden brown crust. Similarly, chickpeas become crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside when oven-roasted. A generous drizzle of dilled yogurt sauce completes this plant-based, Mediterranean-inspired plate that even the most loyal meat lovers will love. Get the recipe here.
This recipe proves, yet again, that cauliflower is destined for more than just side dish status. Roasting the creamy white vegetable transforms it into the star of the meal. In this recipe, it’s nestled between a creamy drizzle of dill-speckled tzatziki sauce and a bed of hearty bulgur. And don’t forget that the brassica is packed with calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C, making it as nutritious as it is delicious. Get the recipe here.
