My new favorite herb in my garden is lovage. It is a robust perennial that can be used in place of celery in any recipe. It has a hollow stem, so try it as a straw for your bloody marys this summer! I love it in smoothies, as around here it is much easier than celery to grow, and during the summer I can have a steady supply on hand. Tonight I am going to whip up some potato and lovage soup, I've adapted this recipe here, replacing the milk with coconut milk.
