Why just Cilantro this time, instead of the typical Sofrito Molido with other herbs and peppers? Simply because there are times in which I only want to use just plain cilantro. A good example, when I make Cilantro Rice this is all I use as far as herbs.
Not only this frozen hack will season your meals, it will save you money and you won’t have to throw away wilted or bad cilantro ever again. Priceless!
Category: MEAL SEASONING
Approx. Prep and Cook Time: 10 Minutes
Approximate Cost: $2.50 or .21 cents/per 2 frozen discs
Difficulty Level: Easy
Allergens, Other: Gluten Free and Vegetarian
1 bunch of fresh cilantro ($1.25)
1 c. or more of organic chicken stock ($1.25)
Rinse the cilantro in abundant water until the water comes out clear. Drain it in a strainer.
Chop in pieces so the long stems don’t get stuck in the blender.
Add cilantro to the blender and pour enough chicken stock to make it liquid.
Process it until the pieces are small enough for easy pouring into a mold.
Pour into your molds of choice and freeze it.
The next day, remove from the freezer and allow to rest over the counter for few minutes, until the cilantro thaw a bit and detaches from the mold.
Place the frozen discs into a labeled plastic bag or container and freeze immediately.
Done, just use them as needed.
