1 bunch
herbs such as parsley, cilantro, chives, sage, etc.
1 Tbsp
extra-virgin olive oil (or as needed)

Chop herbs as you normally would for use. Place in a bowl. Add extra-virgin olive oil. Just enough to coat. Stir.
Using a small flat dish (cake pan, pie, or similar, and line with plastic wrap. Place herbs in pan and spread to about 1/4 around the pan.
Place in freezer and leave until frozen. Bring the surrounding plastic wrap around to cover and place into a plastic freezer bag.
