Fresh Herb Marinade

Prep time 5 mins
Marinate time 15 mins
Yield Makes enough for 2 lbs. vegetables


  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme, rosemary, oregano, or tarragon leaves, or a combination
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup olive oil, vegetable oil, or melted butter

How to Make It

  1. Put all ingredients in a nonreactive bowl and stir to combine. Add vegetables and turn over to coat.

Cook's Notes

If your vegetable is dense--like, say, corn, potato, or a parboiled artichoke--you can marinate for as long as an hour.
