ghee in my kitchen

Earlier this month I was introduced to ghee- a clarified butter- and it has since become a much-loved ingredient in my cooking.
Ghee is lactose free and is easier to digest because it has lesser amount of fat than other cooking oils. What’s more, it does not break down in high heat and it has a great flavor! This past week, I have used ghee to saute all kinds of veggies from kale to spinach, cabbage and zucchini.
Today’s glorious weather inspired me to a more colorful blend, so I chopped whatever legumes I had in my fridge: leeks, zucchini, eggplant, sweet potato and sautéed everything in ghee. Served on rice noodles, it was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend it!Photo0140 

About Mahi S

I was born on the island of Cyprus in 1971. For years, I lived the life of a nomad: I grew up in the Arab Gulf, finished high school in Cyprus, then went to the U.S. for five remarkable, life-changing years of study and work in public relations. With every change of home, I was confronted with the challenge of separation and the issue of identity, but ultimately the rewarding experience of interacting with people of different cultures has informed my life ever since. It inspired me to create an ideal setting wherever I found myself, to live meaningfully and use passion as the main ingredient in my life. I run to keep myself motivated and to fire the kind of creative thinking that keeps me balanced and content. But it’s also an ongoing challenge: since 1999, I have completed 17 half-marathons, which I try to run in a different city every time. In fact, running and travel are the two pillars of my life philosophy: “Travel is fascinating, whether it’s about a series of mesmerizing destinations or a journey within myself”. “Running keeps me sane, motivated and focused!” Right now, I am focusing on promoting my new book, ‘A squirrel in your kitchen’ an e-cookbook with quick, easy and delicious recipes (and anecdotes) from dearest friends around the world. I am also hoping to experience the fascinating challenge of a full marathon in 2016; in Athens or New York. We’ll see!
