Basil Garlic Butter Pierogi – Pierogies topped with a flavorful basil infused garlic butter sauce. A quick and easy meal that is incredible!
So I have to let you in on a secret. I have a new best friend. It’s Dorot herbs. These herbs are seriously going to knock your socks off and might just be the coolest things since sliced bread. Yup, they are that cool. So they come in frozen, pre-portioned cubes so you literally just pop one or two out for your recipe and you’re done! No more chopping herbs! Isn’t that the coolest?! I always hate chopping garlic especially because then my hands just reek of garlic no matter how much I scrub them but that is one issue I don’t have to worry about anymore. No more herb-prepping! It is so exciting!
I bought my two different types of Dorot herbs for this basil garlic butter pierogi recipe at my local Trader Joe’s in Ann Arbor and they were so easy to find there. They were right in the frozen section on the right side corner. I grabbed both types of Dorot (and maybe a thing of cookies or two) and headed over to the checkout, eager to get home and start cooking.
I decided to make these basil and garlic butter pierogies and wow, they were so good and oh so simple! The pierogies were frozen since I was going so a simple dinner that I could make in 30 minutes or less and they sauce was SO easy to whip up since I didn’t have to chop up any the basil and garlic since I was using Dorot! Being a college student, I just don’t have a ton of time to dedicate to cooking so any shortcuts I can take are so helpful!
Oh, and did I mention this basil garlic butter pierogi recipe is vegetarian?!
