I have a question about the recipe "Zucchini with Basil, Mint, and Honey" from amanda.
If I wanted to substitute dried Basil and Mint for the fresh leaves, how much would I use? I thought about 1/2 teaspoon of each, does that seem right/not enough/too much??

It seems like not enough to me--but you could try it and add more if you like. This recipe is wonderful with fresh herbs--I hope it works well with dried.

I'd start with a 1/2 teaspoon each and then add more if you like.
