Kitchen Favorites: Trader Joe's Herbes de Provence

I have been toying around with the idea of starting a kitchen favorite series on the blog to share my favorite items and how to use them. Here we are with the first kitchen favorite; Trader Joe’s Herbes de Provence! This is a aromatic blend of dried herbs including rosemary, oregano, thyme, basil, savory, sage and lavender. Herbes de Provence is one of my absolute favorite mixes because of its versatility and aroma.

This particular one can only be found at Trader Joe’s. It costs $5.99, which is slightly more than most herb jars but you get more for your money. Trader Joe’s herbes de Provence is bigger in comparison to other herb jars. The jar is super cute and comes with an attached wooden spoon for scooping the dried herbs. It would certainly make an amazing hostess gift. The beautiful aroma of the herbs hits your nose the moment you open the jar. You can tell good quality herbs were used to create this mix.

Ways to use Trader Joe’s Herbes de Provence:

Herbes de Provence is a mixture of dried herbs typically from the Provence region South of France. It similar to but not exactly the same as Italian seasoning which does not include savory. This herb mix is superb with meat, especially roast beef and chicken. It is also great with veggies, fish and lots more.

  • For a quick Provencal style chicken recipe, mix herbes de Provence with garlic, salt, pepper and oil then rub inside and outside a whole chicken. Roast for about an hour and half. Its simple and absolutely delicious!
  • You can also roast potatoes coated with a mixture of herbes de Provence, garlic, salt and oil for the most amazing potato side dish.
  • A good pinch of herbes de Provence will make your scrambled eggs or tofu more special.
  • Herbes de Provence is a great addition to salad dressings too.
  • On bread, with olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, so delicious!

  1. lol, so i’ve never heard of this before but apparently i’m gonna have to wait a little longer, judging my karrie’s comment and the fact that i’m in canada.

  2. I like the little spoon the jar comes with. I always end up adding too much or too little herbs in my dishes. Having a measuring tiny spoon like this would be very useful.

  3. Well done on starting your new kitchen favorites series, so fun! I like the sound of this and I’d never heard of Trader Joe’s herbes before, I wonder if they do it in the uk? I will have to find out now!

  4. This looks absolutely fabulous!!! I love shopping at Trader Joe’s but haven’t been in quite awhile…. heading over this afternoon to pick this up! 🙂

  7. The kitchen favorites series sounds like a really cool idea! I like it! The herbes de provence sounds like is smells and tastes delightful. We have Trader Joe’s here, but it’s kind of out of my way, so I’ve actually never shopped there. I might have to make a trip to pick this up!

  8. I love TJ’s so much! And they have such wonderful deals on seasonings and spices. I love HdP too. It’s really good on a rice dish I make.

  9. Having some good herbs on hand is important. I love adding a little bit of spice to the things I cook. This would be perfect for that.

  10. Love this blend. It is great in ground turkey or pork which I get from a local farm. 1 lb meat, two spoons of this herb blend, 1 clove chopped garlic, salt and it adds a nice seasoning to ground meatballs or patties.
