Our Fresh EssentialsLeave a Comment
Following the discussion about our most loved food cupboard ingredients (which you can read about here), we decided to have a chat with the ProWare team about the fresh ingredients that have a permanent place in our fridges.
Faye – Lemons
“They are incredibly versatile. Full of vitamin C and have a fantastically uplifting fragrance. You can feel immediately more virtuous by adding lemon to a pint of hot water as part of your daily routine and it is particularly great with some sliced ginger, a chilli and a drop of honey if you have a nasty cold. Lemons are great in both sweet and savoury cooking. Halved inside a roast chicken, zested to give tomato sauce a lift or in lemon cheesecake. Don’t forget a slice in a gin and tonic too!”
Fiona – Carrots
“We always have carrots in the fridge as they’re great raw for a snack or to bulk out a salad. We love them steamed or roasted as part of a meal and they are full of vitamin A.”
Danielle – Minced Beef
“I regularly make either bolognaise and chilli so this is a must have in my kitchen. When I’m on a health kick I always buy the 5% fat version which is a nice alternative to the typical healthy protein sources such as chicken and eggs.”
Robert – Garlic
“Garlic forms part of the base in almost everything we cook at home. It’s an essential ingredient in such a vast array of cuisines that we are never without it. We even grow it in our garden!”
Rachel – Chorizo
“I always have a Chorizo in my fridge. It’s great because it has a long shelf life so can sit in there as a back up for a last minute meal. Its easily made into a pasta dish with whatever vegetables I’ve got kicking about.”
Jayne – Mushrooms
“I am never without fresh mushrooms as they are so versatile and a great addition to many vegetarian recipes. They are also delicious cooked on their own, especially for breakfast”
Lawson – Feta Cheese
“Perhaps not the most versatile cheese but it really can’t be beaten when crumbled over salads, pasta or pizza. It has a fresh, vibrant tang that really livens things up and I just love it!”
