Cooking with Young Living Essential Oils

Friday February 18th cooking with Young Living Essential Oils - Lemon, Basil, and peppermint etc., was something new and different!

The demo was a challenge for Jo and I and after research and experiments we picked recipes to showcase the oils.
Please remember you can only cook with Young Living Essential Oil.

Herbs contribute hugely to the taste and enjoyment of food. For the stir-fry prawns we used four different oils; Prawns with Ginger oil, prawns with Coriander, prawns with basil oil and prawns with lemon grass oil. We also cooked Prawns with fresh ginger also. One dish of roast vegetables with rosemary infused olive oil. Jo's chicken lasagna was cooked with essential oils and fresh herbs to test the taste. Jo also mixed chocolate with peppermint oil- so yummy!
Fee of Y.L. Essential Oils opened the event with general information about the oils and took many question from the floor. Nigel took over for all the tasting!

As they say seeing is believing but in this case tasting is believing and I was quite impressed with the taste!
