Soups with aromatic herbs
October 16, 2013

Mediterranean Aromatic MixtureFor this soup I used my homemade mediterranean aromatic mixture, similar to italian seasoning, with rosemary, sage, marjoram, thyme, oregano, mint and several other herbs.

I also added some fresh chives and a touch of allspice.
