5 ways to boost flavour when cooking
Our favourite fresh-food chef shares his top picks for boosting flavour in the kitchen
1. Neal Brothers Tomatillo Salsa
We always have a bottle of this salsa (Neal Brothers‘ newest) in our fridge. It has zero fat, and is low in sodium and high in flavour. We enjoy it with tortilla chips, omelettes, wraps and roasted meats.
I have this product on hand for sushi and stir-fries. Though tamari is a type of soy sauce, this ‘lite’ version that I use has less sodium, is wheat-free, and is thicker and richer than other soy sauces.
3. Patak’s Tandoori Paste
You need only a little of this tandoori curry paste to pump up the flavour of exotic recipes or soups.
I use coconut oil for pan-frying. It’s great for high-heat cooking, and it’s heart-friendly. (Note: For more about the health benefits of coconut, click here.)
I love to add fresh herbs to recipes, but buying bunches of them can be a waste. These pastes, which come in tubes, are full of flavour and last three months in the fridge, or six in the freezer.
