01 Mar 31 Days of Global Flavors for National Nutrition Month: Day 1
In honor of National Nutrition Month (that’s March!), I requested diet specialists from across the nation their favourite world taste. Each day all through the month of March, you can find a brand new taste and recipe posted, providing you with a unique perspective and concept on find out how to incorporate completely different flavors from around the globe.
Today, I’m sharing my favourite ingredient, Greek yogurt.
People are at all times stunned after I inform them simply what number of methods you should use Greek yogurt when cooking and baking. It actually is such a flexible ingredient and as soon as I began getting the hold of utilizing it in lots of of my dishes, it’s going to develop into a staple in lots of of my dishes. Some of my favourite methods to make use of Greek yogurt is in pancakes, popsicles, parfaits, deviled eggs, and smoothies. I even love utilizing a dollop of Greek yogurt so as to add some taste to soups and chili.
One of my favourite methods to make use of it’s in these Whole Grain Banana-Chocolate Chip Pancakes. I exploit it to switch buttermilk by combining Greek yogurt with somewhat milk. All my children request these pancakes on their birthday they usually now have a really particular place in our household traditions.
As for a cultural connection, my household originates from Israel and thick yogurt has been on my breakfast desk since I used to be a woman. Labne, which is a thick yogurt in Israel, was solely out there in vanilla and chocolate flavors after I was rising up. Once Greek yogurt turned extra widespread within the U.S. it jogged my memory of my childhood and shortly turned a favourite in my residence. My first e-book, The Greek Yogurt Kitchen, is all concerning the versatility of Greek yogurt within the kitchen! Wow, how issues have come full circle.
