  • An essential ingredient in Thai and Vietnamese dishes
  • A punchy, citrus flavour that goes well in curries and soups
  • The woody stems make a fantastic, refreshing tea
  • A quick growing herb which can be grown indoors or outside in the summer

Lemon grass is widely used as a culinary herb in Asian cuisines, and more and more in the UK. In India, it's used as a medicinal herb. It brings a subtle citrus flavour, that feels clean and palate-cleansing. It can be dried and powdered, or used fresh depending on your preference.

There are so many really delicious and creative recipes for making homemade teas, soups and curries, it's just about being able to choose what to cook. It's also worth trying lemon grass poultry, fish, beef and seafood dishes too.
