Mixing two teaspoons each of dried savory and thyme, one teaspoon each of dried marjoram and lavender, 1/2 teaspoon each of fennel seeds and dried rosemary, and one crushed bay leaf makes a substitute for Herbes de Provence. The exact blend of ingredients in Herbes of Provence varies among manufacturers.
Herbes de Provence is a multipurpose seasoning blend consisting of herbs that grow in the Provence region of France. Mint is a possible substitution for the rosemary, and both the lavender and bay leaf are optional. Oregano, tarragon and dried Italian parsley are optional additions. Orange zest is another option included by some cooks.
