One of the things I adore about Dorot Herbs is they are so simple and easy to use. Dorot herbs always seem to bring my dinners to an entirely new level. Dorot provides the perfect amount of herbs for my recipes every time, with absolutely no prep or cleanup, so it makes making my recipe for Sopa de Albondigas a cinch. Dorot also has pre-portioned garlic, onions, and herbs which eliminated my chopping and measuring, making it effortless to season and flavor my Sopa de Albondigas.
Who doesn’t love the fact that Dorot, is all natural, raw, and vegan? Dorot contains no preservatives or artificial flavors. It is kosher and halal. Dorot is also a non-GMO product and is gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and soy-free. I’m sorry Y’all that just makes my heart sing with joy that a product contains none of my pet peeve no-nos. Does it make your heart sing too?
Did you know that Dorot grows their own garlic, basil, cilantro, parsley, chili, and ginger? At peak freshness, they harvest their herbs from the fields, process the herbs and then flash freeze them in trays within 90 minutes of their harvesting, how awesome is that?
I don’t know about you but I would rather spend my free time relaxing instead of doing all this time chopping; wouldn’t you? Besides those darn onions make me cry Y’all…Unfortunately, I don’t look very pretty crying so trust me when I say, I am happy to know that Dorot also has a product called Glazed onions I can use.
