Easily enhance your holiday favorites with fresh frozen herbs!
Turkey takes center stage in November - but deliciously unique side dishes and appetizers with herbs can turn an ordinary Thanksgiving meal into a memorably flavorful feast! Daregal Fresh frozen herbs can be your secret ingredient for an even more scrumptious holiday season this year!
Appetizing with herbs
To start out your gathering, try serving holiday guests a homemade herb pesto pinwheel featuring fresh frozen basil or cilantro. Fresh homemade pesto is a snap to make with Daregal herbs, and molding it with your cheese of choice into a frozen pastry makes for a bit-sized treat that will tie your guests over until the main meal event.
Simply combine fresh frozen basil and oregano, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, garlic and finely diced onions and tomatoes (optional) to make the pesto. Open a can of frozen croissant or crescent dinner rolls, separate into two squares and apply the pesto. Then bake for about fifteen minutes, cut into small pieces and serve with toothpicks.
Show your flavorful sides
Now on to the main meal – we’ll go ahead and assume you’re planning to stick with tradition and serve a turkey main course. Throwing together a couple new side dishes can add a refreshing change to your meal, and with Daregal fresh frozen herbs, it’s easier than ever to do.
