Servings 1 tray

Ingredients
  

  • thinly sliced basil leaves or any herbs
  • olive oil or avocado oil enough to cover them in the tray

  • Pop the tray in the freezer and once it’s frozen you can transfer them into a ziplock bag and use individually.
  • Thaw one before you use it or simply pop it in a pan and enjoy.

Notes

These are perfect for pasta, thawed and food processed with nuts and more herbs for pesto, tomato sauce recipes (sugo), thawed and mixed with other herbs and used as marinade for chicken or fish. You can use any herbs like rosemary, thyme, parsley, etc. and even mix them up all up in the ice-cube tray as it makes a phenomenal marinade. These are also a wonderful base for soups and stews as well. Perfect on mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, or even veggies depending on what herbs you choose to add in the tray.
