Thyme

The subtle, slightly minty taste of thyme is ideal for seasoning soups, poultry, veal and lamb. For simple sides, try thyme with mashed potatoes, braised carrots or brussels sprouts. We love thinly sliced sautéed brussels sprouts mixed with thyme, lemon, sherry vinegar and Dijon mustard. Thyme's unique, mild flavor also works well in cocktails, such as this refreshing brunch drink that combines muddled sage, breakfast tea–infused vodka, lemon juice and honey.

It’s a tried-and-true pairing with chicken, as well as lemon, and you can get creative with the herb by adding it to shortbreads with tomato paste and Parmigiano-Reggiano for a savory biscuit. Plus, if you haven’t hopped on the herby dessert train yet, thyme works well with sweet flavors, too, which is why Jean-Georges Vongerichten developed a lemon-thyme sorbet with summer berries. (And we’re forever grateful.) Read on for some of our favorite ways to cook with thyme.
