Recipes That Use GHEE

After reading all your comments last week on my review of Gather Superfoods Ghee, I thought that it would be appropriate to follow up with some FUN recipes that you could try out that incorporate ghee. And later on, I would like to dive in a little deeper as to why it is important to incorporate ghee and other healthy fats into our daily eats. But first the recipes...

Ghee is a very versatile healthy fat that you can use as a substitute for butter, for sauteing, for slathering on your favorite delicious toast, and for drizzling on your nighttime popcorn. But there are MANY other ways you can use ghee. Here are 5 GHEE RECIPES that I found inspiring and I am looking forward to whipping up in the near future. 

GUT HEALING CINNAMON COCONUT LATTE by The Real Food Dietitians

I LOVE coffee and I LOVE lattes! The Real Food RDs are pretty amazing ladies, who I have gotten to know this past year and worked with on many projects. They are knowledgeable, inspiring, and their recipes are delicious. Make sure to whip up this latte and enjoy all the nutritional benefits it has to offer!

PALEO LEMON BUTTER CHICKEN by Jay's Baking Me Crazy

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably notice that I make chicken thighs a lot. They are so damn good and that crispy skin is my favorite part. I love the simplicity of this recipe with all the fresh lemon and the nice touch of coconut cream. I feel like this photo needs to be a scratch and sniff. DELICIOUS! 

GHEE RICE by Sailu's Food

This recipe only takes 5 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to cook! It is versatile, healthy, and loaded with lots of delicious flavors. Who knew you could dress up rice like this? I love the addition of Garam masala and cashew nuts. Make a big pot of this on Sunday and eat it throughout the week!

Yes this recipe is going to take a little bit of time, practice, and extra love, but I believe it is 100% worth it. Invite a friend over, sip on some wine, and make these little sweet potato bites and just have fun with it!
