Basic Cooking

with Plus Oils

g takes pride in taking the stress out of cooking. Understanding how our essential oils nt particular dishes doesn’t have to be complicated. Follow these simple tips to add more flavour and vitality to your everyday recipes.

SPICE IT UP: When used in conjunction with recipes containing chicken, fruit and sweet potatoes, Cinnamon Bark+ essential oil, which has a sharper taste than cinnamon powder, offers the perfect touch. It also provides a nice addition to spaghetti, squash, and pumpkin dishes as well as fruit juices. Just remember - a little goes a long way.

AROMAS OF ITALY: Italian dishes ncluding spaghetti, pizza and lasagne are wonderful with Basil+, Oregano+ and Rosemary+ essential oils. These essential oils can also liven up fish, vegetable soups and broth, savoury breads, scrambled eggs, spreads, pastas, and grains.

REMEMBER THE THYME: Add Thyme+ essential oil to poultry marinades, pasta, polenta, green beans, and many egg dishes.

A DROP OF CITRUS: Citrus essential oils such as Orange+, Lemon+ and Tangerine+ work well when matched with chicken, seafood, fruits, vegetable salads and smoothies. They can also be added to bread, cake, biscuit & chocolate recipes to enhance flavour. Water enhances bitterness in citrus essential oils, so only use 1 drop in water-based recipes.

TASTE THE TANG: Dill+ essential oil adds an extra tinge of tanginess to potatoes, cucumber, tomato salads and even coleslaw. Fish, chicken, pasta dishes and many summer and winter vegetables also taste fantastic when paired with Dill+.

A COOL TWIST: For a refreshing change, try including Peppermint+ essential oil in cold water or adding to hot or iced herbal teas.


Essential Oil Ratios and Helpful Hints How much should I use?

Young Living encourages individuals to start off by using Plus essential oils in recipe that call for dried herbs, spices, or fruit juices. Simply replace these ingredients with th companion Plus essential oil.

Keep in mind that Plus essential oils have a stronger flavour than dried herbs and spic Even though there are approximately 60 drops of Plus essential oil in a teaspoon, beca our culinary essential oils are so potent, a much smaller amount would be sufficient Therefore, it is best to start out with small amounts of your chosen Plus essential oil and increase until the desired flavour preference has been reached.

Citrus Fruits

Common Herbs

The juice or zest of one Lemon, Orange or Tangerine can be replaced with 10-15 drops of its companion Plus essential oil.

1 tablespoon or more of dried Orega Rosemary, Thyme, Dill or Black Pep can be replaced with 1 drop of it companion Plus essential oil.

Toothpick Method

With recipes that include less than 1 teaspoon of a chosen herb or spice, dip a toothp in the Plus essential oil and then swirl it in the recipe to blend it with other ingredients. Cinnamon Bark+ and Ginger+ essential oils are much stronger than their companion sp use the toothpick method outlined above when adding to recipes.

Helpful Hints

When used alone, it is important not to heat Plus essential oils beyond their flash poin This can be easily avoided by lowering your hob temperature, using the essential oils conjunction with extra virgin olive oil, or by adding essential oils when the dish has be removed from the heat or flame. Since the flavour of Plus essential oils can dissipate, a them to dishes immediately before serving if the recipe requires refrigeration. Young Liv encourages the use of organic, natural ingredients wherever possible while cooking

BREAKFAST

INGRE DIE NTS ( CONTIN U ED )

Chocolate Coating • 100 g dark chocolate, melted • 4 drops Young Living Citrus Fresh®+

METHOD: Preheat your oven to 180°C. Cream together the coconut oil, softened butter and sugar with a hand mixer on a low to medium setting. Add the eggs and continue to mix on a low speed. Once the eggs are incorporated, add your Rosemary+ and Lemon+ and continue to slowly mix. Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix on a medium speed. The mixture may separate and appear to form small lumps. Once the flour has moistened, add in the chopped walnuts and lemon zest and knead the mixture into a large ball with your hands. Separate the dough into two balls. Roll and flatten out each ball into a small loaf shape and place your dough on to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in your preheated oven for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes, take the loaves out and allow them to cool for 5 minutes. Using a serrated knife, cut the cooled loaves into uniform slices, about ½ an inch thick. Lay each biscotti slice on the original tray’s parchment paper and continue to cook for 5 more minutes. After 5 minutes, flip the biscotti and cook for a further 5 minutes. Then allow to cook until they reach room temperature. While your biscotti are cooling, break your chocolate into chunks and set aside in a bowl before boiling a small saucepan of water. Once the water boils, take it off the heat and place the bowl above the saucepan. Gently stir the chocolate until it is completely melted, being careful not to splash any water into your melted chocolate mixture. Once your chocolate is completely melted, add your Young Living Citrus Fresh®+ and stir until it is completely incorporated. Then, smooth the melted chocolate across one side of your biscotti pieces, and repeat until all the biscotti are half-coated in delicious dark chocolate. Place your biscotti in the fridge until the chocolate sets and serve the finished result with a cup of herbal tea.

LEMON-NINGXIA SANDWICH COOKIES Kathleen Campbell, USA YO U NG L I V I N G P RO DU C T S US E D

Lemon+ NingXia Red®

INGRE DIE NTS

Cookie • 125 g butter • 85 g honey • 1 egg • 20 drops Lemon+, as desired • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract • ½ teaspoon salt • 375 g plain flour Filling • 230 g cream cheese, room temperature • 65 g butter, softened • 2 teaspoons NingXia Red • ½ teaspoon beetroot powder • 125 g nonfat dry milk powder • 125 g cornstarch • 2 teaspoons caster sugar

METHOD: Cream the butter and honey together before adding all other cookie ingredients to the mix. Be sure to add the flour last and combine well until a dough forms. Cover and chill the dough for 3-4 hours before rolling. Preheat your oven to 190°C. Roll out the dough until it’s roughly 1/3 of an inch thick and cut evenly into shapes of your choice using a cookie cutter. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are just starting to brown. Remove from the oven and cool on wire racks. For the filling, beat the cream cheese, butter and NingXia Red in a large bowl using a hand mixer. Add the beetroot powder until your desired shade of red is achieved. Separately, mix the milk powder, cornstarch, and caster sugar until well blended before gradually adding to the cream cheese mixture. Put a spoonful of the filling in the centre of half of the cooled cookies and then sandwich the biscuit together with an additional lemon cookie. Smooth the edges if the filling spills out and keep cool in the fridge until they’re served.

Cinnamon Bark+

INGRE DIE NTS

Crust • 250 g plain flour • 85 g butter, chilled • 1 teaspoon salt • 4 tablespoons water Filling • 5 medium apples, peeled and chopped • 100 g caster sugar • 6 tablespoons plain flour • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon • 1-2 drops Cinnamon Bark+, as desired • 2 tablespoons butter, chilled

METHOD: Preheat your oven to 220°C. In a stand mixer, add your flour, butter, and salt and mix until the butter is coated in the flour. Then, use your hands to turn the mixture into a breadcrumb consistency. Add the water and mix until your dough forms a light ball in the mixer. In a separate bowl, mix your filling ingredients together and set aside. Roll out your dough on to a clean, flat surface. There is no need to flour it. Use a cup or bowl to cut out circles in the dough and press the circles into a greased cupcake tin, pressing the dough in to form a cup shape and cutting off any excess dough that spills out over the top. Spoon the apple filling into each dough crust and top with strips of additional dough if desired. Cut your additional butter into 12 small pieces and place one on each individual pie. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until the crust is light brown and the apples are bubbling. Allow to cool and then use a spoon to loosen and remove them from the tin.
