Frozen Herbs Cubes

  1. Carefully remove the herbs from their stems. For larger herbs, such as rosemary, basil or parsley, finely chop the herbs with a sharp knife.
  2. Transfer the chopped herbs into an ice cube tray. Make sure to tightly pack the herbs into each cavity of the tray.
  3. Fill up with ice cube with olive oil, until the herbs are just about covered. Allow for the ice cube tray to sit on the counter for 1-2 minutes to let any air bubbles escape.
  4. Transfer the ice cube tray to the freezer for a minimum of 2 hours. Once set, remove individual herb cubes and store them in a freezer bag in the freezer.

To turn your herb cubes into delicious tomato sauce, simply add a tin of chopped tomatoes to a skillet and add 3-4 herb cubes of your choice. Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the tomatoes have reduced & enjoy the sauce alongside pasta & Co.

Chef’s Tip: Add grated garlic to your cubes before freezing – a simple ready-to-use flavour burst for your day-to-day cooking needs!
