Thank you for all your lovely questions, comments, shares, and stories this past year. In this Miniview (Mini Q & A Interview Series), I’ll answer one question at a time.
Q: What are your favorite food combinations for cooking family dinners?
A: I have many, but for Winter, I really love organic ginger root, garlic, and shallots together…in everything! It works gently in sauces, soups, appetizers, on vegetables, in dips, and with fruit to create a softness. The scent fills the house with a warm, cozy cloud of sweet ginger. Our bodies love it because it really helps boost the immune system and keep us healthy with all the germs about in town. I like to sauté these three, minced, in olive oil, salt, and pepper, on low heat. When tender, add in other things or add it on top of others. We’ll be growing these in our new garden, here at Christmas Rose Cottage, this Spring -Summer -Autumn. This healthy superfood grouping is soothing for the senses and for stomachs, little and big. Ginger was very helpful for maternity illness. I find natural foods so beautiful. The garlic’s airy winged shells, the ginger’s aromatic colour, and my tearful shallotful eyes try to admire their lilac and russet hues fading into one another.
I have included this trio in my new Cookbooks, releasing in 2020. A new Film Series that involves some organic vegan recipe ‘How To’s’ is also on the menu. More Q & A’s are coming up! Please message your questions here. Happy Holiday Cooking! XOXO ~Amor Milagre
