I’m outside gardening or walking and we’re on our bicycles every chance we get. When we’re busy like this I want first of all, simple and fresh, also on the grill if possible and finally a no-fuss menu. Garlic-Basil Red Hasselback Potatoes with Dorot is a 3-check recipe!
I plant a lot of herbs in my garden each year. Unfortunately, my herbs are just babies right now and can’t help me out in the kitchen.
When I found Dorot herbs and garlic in the freezer section of my Trader Joe’s store I couldn’t be more excited.
With a simple pop of the tray, I have a perfectly pre-portioned crushed garlic or chopped herb. Making garlic bread or fresh salad dressing is a snap!
Imagine fresh basil whenever you need it! I get giddy just thinking about it!
I read that Dorot grows its own garlic, basil, cilantro, parsley, chili, and ginger and then flash freezes it within 90 minutes of harvest and they have a shelf life of two years.
I just keep it in the freezer and pop a portion out whenever I need it.
John and I love to grill out on Sundays. We try to not make other commitments and just enjoy each other’s company.
We had a beautiful tenderloin for the grill and I’d picked up some gorgeous asparagus and red potatoes at the farmer’s market that I knew would be great together.
Making a garlic-herb sauce to go on those potatoes was such a great idea!
I’ll be using that combination in so many other dishes from vegetables, proteins, to pasta.
As a result of using herbs and garlic to flavor a dish, I don’t need as much salt.
Don’t have time to make them now? Pin it for later!
