When my husband and I first got married, I cooked a lot. But I was not that great of a cook. It took me some time to learn the art of seasoning, and subtlety in foods. I used a lot of sugar and honey, and salt. And honestly, I thought I was a decent cook. Now I know better. I took classes, read cookbooks religiously, and practiced. I ate a lot, and I finally learned about dimension and contrast in food, and how subtle flavors, some acid, or something to mellow a dish out can take a meal from good to great. Now, I find myself constantly using spices, herbs, and garlic in my cooking to get those dimensions of flavor.
Nothing is more frustrating than when I want to make something amazing, and find my fresh herbs are wilted and slimy. Or my garlic is dried out. I can’t tell you how many times I have been in the middle of making something only to have to stop or substitute because the bag of “fresh” herbs I thought I had was actually a week old and no longer good. But I don’t have that problem anymore thanks to Dorot.
Dorot is found in the freezer section of Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. They are packages of herbs that are individually portioned into 1 Tbs squares. So you don’t have to prep herbs, or even measure them, Dorot’s got you covered. They have Crushed Garlic, Chopped Parsley, Chopped Basil, Glazed Onions, Chopped Dill, Chopped Cilantro, Chopped Chili, and Crushed Ginger. I love them so much. I can stick them in my freezer, and just pull out whatever I need to bring my meal to a whole new level.
Basically, Dorot provides the perfect amount of herbs, with no prep or cleanup, and I always know they will be good! No more stress over whether or not my cilantro is still fresh. This gives me a lot of wiggle room to play and experiment with flavors, and the innovative Dorot products.
This creamy tomato basil tortellini soup is just one example of those experiments. We had an abundance of tomatoes growing in our garden this year, so I decided to use them in a soup. I added plenty of other garden veggies, along with the Dorot Crushed Garlic and Dorot Chopped Basil, and then let it simmer so those flavors could blend. It was sooooo good we ate the whole pot!
So grab some Dorot’s and make these, and experiment with recipes of your own.
I love to serve my soups in a bowl or mug. I found this soup mug that is great on the go because you can take your soup with you when it’s hot or warm it up in the microwave for a homemade lunch during work. The spill proof vented plastic lid is such a great feature!
