Y changing to an E in Lesson 4.2

I am working on lesson 4.2 right now and think I understand when to change the y to e but I have come across this one example and I just don't get it. Can someone explain this to me?

Here is the sentence: Siempre cocina el hígado con ajo y hierbas.

The lesson shows words starting with h you use e because the h is silent.

Yes, however....

The rule is only to prevent the sound of "y" before the sound of "i." The word "hierba" is pronounced "yerba."
