Lovage recipes?

I planted one small lovage (Liebstöckel - Thanks CG! ) plant in my herb garden... and now I'm drowning in the stuff!

I've made soups (potato, tomato, minestrone, variations of veggies with chicken, with duck, and the ever popular clean-out-the-fridge soup), I've made potato salad, lentil salad, mixed grain salads. I've used it pretty much wherever I'd use celery in soups or side-dish salads. I've even frozen bags of the leaves for use later.

Still the plant keeps growing and growing and growing - and I'm running out of ideas.

So I need help from all you creative cooks - what else can I do with lovage?


Many thanks...

Re: Lovage recipes?

Actually it's Liebstöckel in German. Funny enough, both words, Englisch and German, come from Latin Levisticum / Ligusticum, meaning Ligurian, which has nothing to do with love, but both ended up with love in their modern versions.
