Don’t be limited to just cooking with Olive, Rapeseed and Vegetable oil. Sesame, Chilli, Coconut and other infused oils can make all the difference to a meal with minimal effort involved.
7. Dry Roast your ground spices –
This simple tip enhances the flavour of your spices and works great when cooking with ‘mock meats’…they need all the flavour they can get!
8. Opting for a pre-marinated tofu
will save you lots of time in the kitchen. Tofu can have the stigma of being tasteless and plain but there’s no chance of that with the tasty garlic, basil or olive versions available.
9. Miso paste can be a fantastic sauce base or marinade.
Be sure to pick up the non fish sauce version
10. Go big on the Garnish –
Fresh herbs like coriander, basil, parsley, oregano and thyme can transform a dish alongside freshly sliced chillis, spring onion, lemons and limes.
11. Always use seasonal and even more importantly use ripe produce
to maximise flavour in meals.
12. Cook outside your comfort zone.
Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, African and Asian cuisine has lots of inspiration to inspire new dishes. From Asian Style Pineapple Payapa Salads, to Spanish Croquettes via Middle Eastern Shakshukas, there’s plenty of options.
