“FITT” Finds from TheFittChick…


Whenever we think of eating healthy, we tend to think of bland, tasteless food. Healthy food does not automatically mean no flavor. “Fresh herbs, garlic and ginger are such wonderful additions to recipes that, for many cooks, they’re kitchen staples. But what happens when you don’t have any on hand? Or if you’re in a hurry and don’t want to wash, dry and chop? Or if the fresh parsley in the bin has turned yellow, and your garlic cloves are dry and hollow?”

“Enter Dorot, an Israeli-based company specializing in fresh-frozen herbs. They are packaged in what look like tiny ice cube trays, four by five inches, filled with 20 bouillon cube-size nuggets. While frozen herbs will seldom equal fresh ones, these handy substitutes are light years beyond dried herbs, and occupy little freezer space.”

“The cubes pop right out of the tray, so they can easily be added to sautés and soups, dressings and marinades, or anything that needs a hit of concentrated, fresh flavor.”

These are my new favorite find! No one will know you didn’t take out the cutting board and chop away. They have made my go-to meals even better. Run to TraderJoes to pick these up! You will be so glad you did!

  1. I try to use fresh herbs whenever possible but always have a stash of these in my freezer, along with some chili cubes. Great for lifting any meal quickly and effortlessly!
