Frozen Flavor Pods
  • Preparation Time: 10 min
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 onion, cut into quarters
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, or more to taste (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic, or more to taste
  • 1 tomato, halved
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt (such as LAWRY'S®)
  • ground black pepper to taste
  1. Chop green bell pepper, red bell pepper, onion, celery, carrots, jalapeno pepper, and garlic, each separately, in a food processor; combine in a large bowl. Chop tomato in the food processor, drain extra liquid, and transfer chopped tomato to vegetable mixture.
  2. Mix seasoned salt and black pepper into vegetable mixture until evenly coated.
  3. Spray ice cube trays or miniature muffin cups with cooking spray; fill each section with vegetable mixture using an ice cream scoop or large spoon.
  4. Place trays in the freezer until vegetable mixtures are completely frozen, at least 3 hours.
It's nice to keep these on hand in the freezer and pop out a couple of cubes when you want to add flavor or a spot of vegetables to soups, sauces, etc.
