How much frozen fenugreek is equivalent to one bunch, fresh? I'm planning to make this:

I'm guessing that like any dried to fresh substitution, it's 1 tablespoon of fresh leaves to 1 teaspoon of dried. I'm not sure what an actual "bunch" of fresh fenugreek looks like. The variables on a bunch are huge. Taste along the way and go with your instincts!

a recipe with such an exact measurement and you're trying to measure it? As TiggyBee says, go with your instincts!

Actually, I'm not looking for exact measurements, but I don't know what a bunch of fresh fenugreek typically looks like, if their is such a thing . . . I agree, though, that I should just add to taste. I've read elsewhere that fenugreek is a somewhat bitter green, so I will certainly be adding judiciously (and salting too, after thawing and before adding, because I don't care much noticeable bitterness). Thanks! ;o)

Is it in cubes? I found one recipe that called for one small bunch (fresh) or two cubes frozen.

AntoniaJames ''what a bunch of fresh fenugreek typically looks like'' will take one picture of fresh fenugreek from our local farmers market and post by today evening .I don't know how the frozen fenugreel look like?

It's pretty much like a bunch of other leafy herbs. Quantity-wise, I'd say more like coriander than something like oregano.
