This past weekend was no exception, yet I was on the mission to find Dorot. Whole Foods Market is one of the few stores that sell this line of fresh frozen garlic and herbs. No defrosting, waste, or hassle! Dorot’s fresh frozen herbs are pre-washed, chopped, pre-portioned, and ready to use right out of the freezer.
The herbs are conveniently packaged in 20 ice cube tray-like containers that make them effortlessly easy to pop out. Concerned about them going bad? Fret not! These fresh frozen herbs have a two-year shelf life. They maintain their freshness by placing the tray back in the freezer.
Dorot is the perfect option if you don’t want to go through the time and effort in washing, chopping, peeling, and the clean-up involved using fresh herbs. Each cube is the equivalent of 1 teaspoon of a herb, garlic clove, or 3 chopped onions. That’s why I was looking forward to trying it out since I always looking for ways to simplify my time in the kitchen. In addition, they’re affordably priced, raw vegan, all-natural, and gluten-free!
I was set on sharing one of my original vegetarian taco recipes, using their cilantro. But alas, they didn’t have it! So what do you do when life brings you figurative lemons?
You make lemonade!
Some lemonades are sour, while others are overly sweet or simply don’t have much of a flavor. I love lemonade has the perfect balance of sweetness with a bit of tartness. Regular lemonade will always be one of my all-time favorites, but I also love experimenting with other different types of lemonade from time to time.
This Pineapple Ginger Lemonade is a harmonious and healthy combination of lemons, pineapple, apples, and Dorot Crushed Ginger. It is almost hard to put into words how good it is, but it definitely hits the spot!

Dorot can be used in a myriad of different recipes that includes everything from soups and salads to spreads and recipes that call for aromatics or herbs. It’s like having a year-round herb garden in your freezer. By the way, don’t head to the store to purchase Dorot without printing out this $1 off coupon first!
