Recipe: Chervil Coulis

Yet another recipe for our spring star herb: chervil.

A coulis is simply a thin fruit or vegetable puree used as a sauce. Maybe you’ve heard of a raspberry coulis, drizzled over a summertime treat? A coulis can be sweet or savory, drizzled over fruit and ice cream or meats and vegetables.

Our recipe for a chervil coulis is especially good on fish filet, chicken, and roasted vegetables, like asparagus, carrots and potatoes.

Super quick to whip up (~15 minutes) and incredibly versatile. You can substitute the chervil for any flavorful herb or green (think basil or arugula).
