Dozens of Mouth-Watering Uses for Ghee

1. Mix Ghee with fresh lemon zest, minced garlic and dill – bake or broil your favorite fish.

2. Steam your favorite veggies, toss with warmed Ghee & lemon zest – brings out the “zip’ in your veggies. Add ANY spice or herb to your recipe – just remember to sauté your seed spices first to release the aromatic properties, and then add ground spices, onions, garlic, etc. You can also sauté your veggies in a Tsp (per person) of Simply Ghee till they are softened to your liking. Add a very small amount along with unrefined salt and freshly ground pepper right before serving.

3. Roast veggies tossed in Ghee along with herbs and/or garlic at 425 – 450F. Ghee has a high smoking point and will not burn. Toss veggies frequently to evenly roast.

4. Toss hot drained pasta with a Tsp of Ghee instead of olive oil. Add unrefined salt, freshly ground pepper, your choice of favorite fresh herbs and grated Parmesan cheese.

5. Combine Ghee with BBQ mesquite spice & honey to make a simple BBQ glaze for chicken. Eliminate the honey, add freshly minced garlic to the BBQ mesquite and rub all over salmon – bake or broil!
