How to Substitute Dried Herbs for Fresh Herbs



How to Substitute Dried Herbs for Fresh

If a recipe calls for fresh herbs, but you only have dried herbs on hand (or you don't want to spring for fresh), just replace the fresh herbs in your recipe with one third as much of the dried equivalent.

Example: Your recipe calls for a Tablespoon of fresh thyme, so you would use 1 teaspoon of dried thyme in its place.
