Scatter some snipped chives
Fresh... simple... subtly flavoured
One of the most versatile herbs in the kitchen, chives will transform your summer cooking. Toss them into potato salad, sprinkle into mash, scatter over soup, and fold into omelettes and scrambled eggs for a zip of mild onion flavour. You can also add to mayo or use to garnish dips. When cooking with them, add at the last minute to maintain the flavour and texture. Chives are perfect with cheese – everything from soufflés and savoury scones to toasties and tarts. For a quick sourdough toast topper, mix soft goat’s cheese with a little natural yogurt, a pinch of sea salt and a grind of black pepper, then stir in a handful of chopped chives.
