Savory pies and pizza with herbs
September 10, 2012

Returning from vacation, I found a rich harvest of aromatic herbs, chillies, peppers and cucumbers waiting for me.

Savory Pie with Sorrel and Basil PestoWith a bunch of sorrel, chives and various types of basil (a mixture of cinnamon basil, broad leaf basil and lemon basil) I made a pesto for this quiche.
