Hi, Rhubarbarians! Sharing ten of my all time fave fresh dill recipes that aren't pickles!
Dill is one of my go-to herbs when I want to make something that tastes fresh, bright, and really flavorful. It's one of the most underrated herbs, in my opinion!
Although dill is usually associated with pickles, it can be used in many dishes. Soups, salads, sandwiches, dips, even drinks!
Why you'll love these
If you're a dill lover like me, then you know how dill adds a bright, fresh flavor to a dish. It's unique flavor is somewhat tarragon, somewhat anise, somewhat grassy.
All of these recipes are elevated thanks to that unique flavor of dill. Even a bowl of hearty soup can be transformed into a brightly flavored soup with the addition of fresh dill!
So, if you've got a lot of dill to use up and don't want to make pickles, give these fresh dill recipes a try!
When is dill in season? Dill is in season during the warm summer months when the fern like leaves are growing. However, it is available year round at most grocery stores.
How to substitute dried dill
Fresh dill is far superior in flavor to dried dill, so it isn't recommended to substitute it. Especially because fresh dill is available year round at most grocery stores.
If you've got dried dill that you'd like to use, the ratio for most herbs is 1 Tablespoon fresh = 1 teaspoon dried.
Here are ten vegetarian and vegan fresh dill recipes!
This is a fabulous vegan version of Danish split pea soup. The addition of dill adds brightness, while the crispy onion topping adds richness. The result is a soup loaded with flavor.
