Ghee, a healthy, delicious and versatile cooking ingredient, originated in India and is commonly used in many South Asian dishes. It can be added in place of butter or oil and has a rich nutty flavor. Because of its high smoke point, ghee is perfect for cooking foods that require high heat. In fact, ghee has a smoke point much higher than olive oil or butter. Along with its rich nutty taste, ghee also offers many health benefits. Ghee is virtually lactose free, easily digestible and contains many vitamins and nutrients. If you are interested in adding ghee to your diet, the following are a few delicious recipes that you many want to try.

Paleo Breakfast Bowl
1 teaspoon ghee
2 eggs
1/2 cup arugula
2 ounces smoked salmon
1/4 avocado (diced)
Juice of 1 fresh lemon
Dash of freshly ground pepper

Heat ghee over medium heat in a medium saucepan. Slowly add 2 eggs into the pan, and cook until done. These can be scrambled or over easy. Assemble smoked salmon, arugula and avocado in a shallow bowl. Squeeze lemon juice over ingredients in bowl, and sprinkle with fresh pepper. Place cooked eggs over everything in bowl and enjoy.

Chicken Curry over Riced Cauliflower (Grain and Gluten - Free)
4 chicken breasts
1 head cauliflower
1 packet curry paste
1 cup water
3 tablespoons ghee
1/2 cup heavy cream

Melt ghee in a large pot with a lid. Stir in curry paste until it is combined with the ghee. Add water, and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the chicken breasts, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes. Place one head of chopped cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until cauliflower resembles rice. This is referred to as riced cauliflower. Use fresh cauliflower, and do not cook the cauliflower as this would cause the dish to be watery. When the chicken breasts are fully cooked, uncover the pot and add the cream. Cook for about 5 minutes.

Spoon over cauliflower and serve.

Trail Mix Cookies
3 tablespoons ghee
¼ cup raw honey
1 ¼ cups walnut meal (made by blending walnuts in a food processor)
½ cup dried cherries (chopped)
1 teaspoon orange zest
3.5 ounces dark chocolate (chopped into small chunks)
¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds (preferably unsalted)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. You may also use a silicone baking mat. Form a tablespoon of mix into a ball and press down onto baking mat or parchment paper. Place at least one inch apart as these cookies will spread while cooking. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool before transferring to a plate or cooling rack. Let cookies cool another 30 minutes before serving so that they can harden slightly.

Gluten-Free Biscuits
1/3 cup ghee (cold)
1 ½ cups gluten-free flour
¼ cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
1 generous tablespoon baking powder
A little extra ghee for greasing baking pan

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Grease a large baking pan with ghee, and set to the side. Mix the flours, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Cut the ghee into the flour using a pastry cutter. This process should take only about 30 seconds.

Form a well in the center of the bowl, and add all of the milk. Mix until the ghee and flour are moistened. At this point, the dough should be wet. Turn the dough on a floured surface, sprinkle a little flour on top of the dough, and knead about 7 times. Fold the dough over one time, and pat into a circle about ¾ inch thick. Cut the biscuits with a biscuit cutter, and place on the greased pan. The biscuits may touch slightly or have just a small space between each.

Bake for 15 minutes or until the biscuits are slightly brown on top. Enjoy!

Peel the tomatoes after they have cooled, and throw away the skins. Place cooking water, peeled tomatoes and garlic in a food processor, and pulse until smooth. Melt ghee in a pan over medium heat. Add mustard seed, and cook for 1 minute. Stir in curry leaves, processed tomatoes, 1 cup water, sugar, paprika and salt. After the mixture begins to boil, reduce the heat and gently mix in cilantro. Cook for about 5 minutes more and serve.

  • This is my first experience with Ghee but I have to say that for the price I wouldn't go anywhere else. Made from organic grassfed cows milk, so it doesn't have all the hormones and steroids in it. It does have all the micro-nutrients that i require for Personally, I use it for my bulletproof coffee, along with MCT oil. This combo works great! I would definitely buy again.
