FREEZE YOUR HERBS
What’s the word with herbs? Freeze them! Avoidable food waste is a big problem that has some simple solutions – like freezing your unused herbs!
Reducing the 63% of avoidable food waste Canada throws away is as simple as a chop, top and pop! Instead of throwing out your unused herbs (or over-seasoning your roast), just chop up your unused herbs, top with olive oil and freeze. See? Simple!
WHAT YOU NEED
1. Unused herbs
2. Olive oil
3. Ice trays
WHAT TO DO
1. Chop up your herbs into small pieces.
2. Place herbs into your ice trays.
3. Top with olive oil.

If you have a taste for spice, add chili flakes to your trays for a bit of heat.
