Trinity herbs

Garlic,  ginger  and chillies

These three herbs should be included in your diet daily. They should be organic and fresh, not cooked.

Trinity Herbs – garlic, ginger and chillies

Why raw?

  • Because it is better for your health so you ingest maximum nutrient value
  • The irritant factor increases with temperature and length of cooking.

How can you make food with these herbs, but not cook them?

  • Peel and grate the ginger.
  • Crush the garlic.
  • Chop the chillies, including the seeds, very fine.

Contrary to what Jamie Oliver and other top chefs say I do the following:

  • prepare the dish as per recipe but do not add ginger, garlic or chillies early in the cooking process
  • when dish is cooked, turn the heat off and stir in the peeled, chopped and crushed herbs
  • allow dish to stand for five minutes and serve.

The result is:

  • maximum flavor for your dish
  • no irritant factor causing  runny tummy,  flatulence or “ring of fire” the next day
  • maximum health benefits of active ingredients.
