Frozen Herb Cubes
Fresh herbs frozen in olive oil for later use.
Servings 14 cubes
- 2 cups fresh herbs chopped
- Olive oil enough to just barely cover the herbs in the ice cube tray
Chop fresh herbs of choice (basil, parsley, oregano, thyme, mint, rosemary, etc). Fill each section of an ice cube tray about 3/4 of the way with chopped herbs.
Pour olive oil into each section until the herbs are just barely covered. Lay the ice cube tray flat in the freezer.
Freeze for at least 4 hours or until the cubes are frozen solid (it may take longer). Remove the ice cube tray and gently pop out each cube. If you use a silicone tray, they should pop out easily. With a plastic tray, you may have to carefully use a butter knife to help you get them out. Transfer the cubes to labeled freezer bags and store for later use.
When you want to use one, pop it into a skillet over medium heat and use the melted oil and herbs to cook veggies, eggs, or other foods.
Other ways to use frozen herb cubes:
- In salad dressings
- Mixed into warm quinoa or rice
- Drizzled over popcorn
