I’m new to the Ratatouille game. I’m also new to the Dorot game. Then I realized Ratatouille with Dorot would be the best and easiest combination of them all. Bring it on baby!
Haven’t heard of Dorot? Don’t feel bad – neither had I!
As soon as I realized what it was and how much easier my life would be I was ALL IN. Frozen herbs in little cubes and ready to use. Um…. Yes please?? Give me all the Dorot.
My biggest thing about fresh herbs is not using them fast enough – I feel like I throw away half of the bushel of cilantro/basil/thyme/etc because my recipe usually calls for 1/2 tsp or something ridiculously small. Why can’t I just buy a 1/2 tsp? NO MORE – now I’ve got my freezer stashed full of delicious frozen Dorot herbs and I am SET!!!
We found our Dorot at Trader Joe’s and my little helper was all to eager to help me out.
This Ratatouille with Dorot is SOOOO incredibly easy – I can barely stand it. Seriously, why have I not been making this everyday for the last forever?
It really is such a pretty dish – I mean, who knew veggies could be so lovely sliced and lined up??
The hardest part of the recipe is chopping up veggies – but if you have a mandolin it ain’t no thang.
Don’t forget to try Dorot – it has made my life in the kitchen a zillion times easier. Huzzah for the freezer!
