Love that Lovage!

Lovage is a Mediterranean herb, its name derived from “love ache” (it was once used in

love potion and aphrodisiac concoctions). When cooking with lovage you can use it as a

substitute for recipes that call for celery or celery seed.

Make lovage tea by steeping 1 tsp of finely chopped leaves in boiling water for 5 minutes.

Toss lovage in your summer salad, roast with your fish or chicken or make Lovage Soup!

Lovage Soup (


1 T butter, 1 chopped green onion (all parts), 1 chopped yellow onion, 2 quarts bone broth,

3 medium (peeled and chopped) russet potatoes, 1 bunch (chopped) lovage leaves, heavy

cream (to serve)


• Melt butter in heavy bottomed stock pot until it froths, reduce heat to medium and

stir in green and yellow onions, fry until fragrant (approx. 5 minutes)

• Add bone broth and chopped potatoes. Cover and simmer approx.

30 minutes until potatoes are tender. Stir in lovage and simmer another 5 minutes.

• Remove from heat. Blend until smooth. Season with sea salt and pepper.

Stir in a spoonful of heavy cream. Serve.
