MY BLEND: 1 teaspoon thyme, basil, oregano, marjoram, plus 1/2 teaspoon sage, fennel seed and rosemary.

Experiment to make your own herbes de provence blend.

I chose an easy roasted asparagus recipe and made three batches using the different blends. (I really love asparagus!).
Roasted Asparagus with Herbes de Provence 
• 1 bunch trimmed, fresh asparagus
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 tablespoon dried herbes de Provence
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
2. Toss asparagus with olive oil, herbes de Provence and spread on baking sheet in a single layer.
3. Roast at 400 degrees until tender and lightly browned, about 12 minutes.

Flavorful herb blends make this simple asparagus recipe delicious.

They were all delicious. Roasting brought out the subtle, sweet/smoky flavors of the herbs without overpowering the taste of the asparagus. I prefer the blends with fennel seeds, but that’s a personal preference. 
Further investigation showed herbes de Provence to be very versatile. It can season grilled meats and veggies, be mixed into sauces, soups or stews, or sprinkled into salads.
Still, there doesn’t seem to be a general consensus on what does or does not constitute herbes de Provence. I asked Bird Mangels, an herbalist in southeast Texas for her opinion. “. . . most lovers of herbs develop their own proportions for herbes de Provence,” she explained.  “For me, a lot depends on what is in my garden.” 
Bird likes to toss her mixture on popcorn, mix it into dips or mac and cheese. Whatever the blend, I’m a convert. Spring will find me humming “Alouette” and tending an herbes de Provence bed.
