Freezing Herbs and Other Uses For Ice Cube Trays

Freezing fresh herbs in olive oil

Sainsbury's are currently promoting and encouraging people to get the most out of their freezer and have assembled some great ideas, inspiration and practical tips for simple freezer solutions as well as some recipes to help you get the most out of your freezer.  All this information is over at Sainsbury's Love Your Freezer Hub. Here there is a section called "8 ingenious uses for an ice cube tray" and I'd like to add another idea to this section ... freezing herbs in an ice cube tray.

My January 2015 TVK Box

My JanuaryVegan Kind Box

As usual, my box from The Vegan Kind arrived bang on time and was opened with huge excitement. You'd think that after all these months I would be in less of a frenzy but no, the hysteria is still present! So what's inside the first box of the year?

Brussels Sprouts with Chestnuts, Red Onion and Mushrooms GF SCD

This is a perfect Thanksgiving or Christmas side dish. Low in calories, Brussels Sprouts are packed with nutrients. High in Vitamins C and K, they also contain generous amounts of Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, folate, potassium and manganese. The perfect flavour combination of the chestnuts and mushrooms and the sweetness of the red onion when combined with these wondrous little green vegetables creates a dish which isn't just OTT healthy, it's fabulously tasty too.

A Vegetarian SCD Christmas

I thought a few of you may be interested in some of the food that was eaten over the Christmas fortnight this year when we were catering for someone on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. It was interesting to see some of the food he created too.

Stuffed Peppers with Cauliflower Rice - Suma Bloggers Network GF SCD

I'm so excited to have been asked to be part of the Suma Bloggers Network and delighted to be able to share my first recipe as part of this network with you. Since I love to experiment with grain free cooking so that as many of my recipes as possible are suitable for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, I've used cauliflower rice in this recipe instead of ordinary rice. I've been making cauliflower rice for some time now but apparently, cauliflower rice is going to be one of the trendiest foods of 2015, have you tried it yet?
