Butter. I have been depriving myself, my family and our food from butter for so long … I was always under the impression that it was bad for our health and we should stay away from it as much as we can.
Our dear friend, super mom and guest writer, Hiba Itani shared with our super moms an amazing article in 2014, based on facts on the foods that will help nourish our child’s brain and their benefits and one of them was Butter. If you haven’t read it out check it out:
After also viewing Time magazine’s article on “End the War on Fat” let me slowly overcome my “fear” of butter in my recipes – http://time.com/2863227/ending-the-war-on-fat/
But before you start adding butter to all your food – let’s not forget that it is made from ANIMAL FAT – so let’s regulate your butter intake 🙂
When I recently got a gift from the Team at Lurpak Arabia to try out their new COOK’S RANGE – I was excited to “Venture Forth” 🙂
The main reason I was very excited when introduced to this range of products is how easy cooking has become.
LURPAK COOKING MIST:
Going back to the fact that we need to regulate our butter intake – the COOKING MIST allows you to spray an even amount on your pan before you start. Made with a mix of Rapeseed oil and Butter to give it a healthier twist.
Rapeseed oil is one of the healthiest cooking oils, particularly due to its beneficial balance of fatty acids (has less fat content than other oils such as sunflower, olive and corn oil etc..).
So its been very helpful in cooking steaks, eggs, chicken or any other fun combination you can think of. A quick spray and you are ready …
LURPAK COOKING LIQUID:
The second product was the Cooking Liquid. Also made with a combination of Rapeseed oil and Butter giving it a rich, thick texture. I am finding this product ideal when frying onions and even the Vermicelli (Sh3eyriyeh) before cooking the rice.
LURPAK BUTTER BLOCKS (50g)
And now begins my adventure in desserts – the Butter Blocks.
Pre-measured 50g blocks. They can be used in all dishes and sauces – but I have been having “fun” with them in my desserts! Their small size allows the butter soften quicker – as super moms always need to strive for quick & easy cooking! 🙂
NB: 50g of Butter is around 1/4 cup – in case your recipe book uses cups rather than grams.
Stay tuned will be sharing some delicious recipes very soon!
If you have any recipes that you want to share with other super moms let us know!
Enjoy Cooking Super Moms, because it just got a little easier with Lurpak!
WOULD I RECOMMEND TO OTHER MOMS:
