Recipe: Meat and vegetables ragout with thyme

Sauces, dressings and dips with herbs
May 14, 2010

Wild thymeEvery winter my thyme dies, so last summer I bought wild thyme instead of regular thyme. It's an harder plant, and now is alive and full of green fresh leaves.

I used the wild thyme for this ragout: you can use it as a pasta seasoning, or as a delicious soup, served with rustic bread slices.
