Bay leaves have a unique flavor profile that is slightly floral, sweet, and mildly astringent. Ground bay leaves are much more potent than whole leaves, so it’s recommended to use them in smaller quantities. When you use them sparingly, they can contribute to the depth and complexity of your dish.

Ground bay leaves can be used in a wide range of dishes, from meat dishes and stews to rice dishes and soups. It’s particularly flavorful in tomato-based sauces, such as spaghetti bolognese or lasagna. In Mediterranean cuisine, it’s frequently used in fish and seafood dishes, pilafs, and stews. Ground bay leaves can also be used in pickling and marinades.
