SERVES: 2
TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN

 

INGREDIENTS
1/2 Cup Basmati Rice
2 tbs OMGhee
1 Cup Chopped Fresh Coriander
Indian Black Salt
Squeeze of Lemon Juice per Serve
#1 Cup of Joy

 

DIRECTIONS
Wash your rice 4 times until the water changes to be clear in colour. Then allow the rice to soak in clean filtered water for 10 mins.

Drain your rice and place it in a saucepan. Add boiling water to
1cm above the rice line. Turn the heat to high, place the lid on
the saucepan and boil for one minute or until froth appears.

Turn off the heat, leave the lid on and wait. It will be ready in
10 mins. Do not remove the lid.

While waiting for your rice, cut the coriander finely.

Take the rice off the stove, stir through the coriander and add dollops of OMGhee.

Serve into individual portions and squeeze lemon liberally over each serve and season with black salt.

Fun Fact:  Black salt isn’t really that black and it stinks of sulfur.  Don’t let this put you off though.  Like parmesan cheese, it tastes different than how it smells.  It adds a very distinct flavour profile to the dish without it becoming – salty.  Black salt is only ever used for enhancing dishes after they have been made. It is not suited to be added to dishes during the cooking process.

Ingredients

  • 250g Salmon (skin on)
  • Small bunch of Asparagus
  • 1 Tablespoon of OMGhee 
  • Micro Herbs
  • Squeeze of Lemon Juice
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Pinch of #Joy, Love & Intention

 

How to – Easy step by step instructions.

  1. Prepare your asparagus, by removing the tough part of the stalk (usually the bottom centimeter or so) – We’re going to be leaving them whole for this recipe. 
  2. Bring your frying pan to high heat and add your OMGhee.
  3. Ghee has a super high smoking point so you don’t need to worry too much about how high the heat goes. (Don’t burn the house down though!) 
  4. Add your Salmon to the pan skin side down. You’re going to get the skin nice and crispy in the first part of this cook.
  5. After 1 – 2 mins turn the heat down to medium and if your skin is crisp, turn your salmon and continue to cook until the fish is flakey and falls apart (or to your liking).
  6. Remove Salmon and allow it to sit.
  7. Turn the temperature up to high, add your asparagus to the pan and toss in the Salmon juice and ghee until heated through (about a minute).

 

That’s it.

Serve the salmon and asparagus, throw some micro herbs on top to make it look pretty and up the vitamin intake. Squeeze some lemon, add salt and pepper to taste, and you’re good to go.

The Purest Ghee for a Keto Diet and Bullet Proof Coffee Recipe

purest ghee for keto diet bullet proof coffee

OMGhee is the only biodynamic, organic,  ghee in Australia making it the purest ghee for a keto diet and bullet proof coffee.

Ghee is considered to be one of the healthiest fats when eating a ketogenic diet.  The keto diet focuses on foods high in fat, low in carbohydrates and high in proteins.  Depending on where you read some have calorie restrictions others do not.  However, back to ghee.

The main reasons ghee is highly valued on a ketogenic (keto) diet is because eating pure ghee will not bump you out of a fast, it will curb your appetite and OMG it tastes so good.

Two more reasons is that Ghee is lactose free making it great for those with dairy intolerances and it has a high smoking point.  The high smoking point of ghee means is less likely to create free radical like other oils are prone to do when used for cooking in your keto diet.

Besides being an amazing cooking fat (I dare you to cook your steak in it, and eggs…. next level!) pure ghee is used in the widely popular bullet proof coffee.

Ghee and coffee – who would have thought it.  Having coffee on an empty stomach can cause acidity however, adding pure ghee in a keto bullet proof coffee is it has a soothing effect on the gut.

The addition of some spices makes it mmmmm – chef’s kiss – so so yummy.  Especially first thing in the morning.

There are lots of recipes for a bullet proof coffee despite its simplicity.  Here’s how we do it.

SERVES 1

TIME 2 mins

INGREDIENTS

Black coffee

1/2 tsp of clean, pure fat (OMGhee of course).  Some choose MTC oil, others coconut oil.  We believe the purest ghee for a keto diet is OMGhee because it is not only organic its also biodynamic.  The additional health benefits that come with ghee are a bonus plus it has plenty of other uses in the pantry as opposed to MCT oil.  You can up the amount of ghee overtime until you are more comfortable.

Any spices you may want to add. Our favourite is cinamon, nutmeg and a little cardomon to offset the coffee jitters.

METHOD

In a blender wizz your your black coffee with your pure OMGhee ghee until it resembles a latte.

Voila! You’re done.
