Let’s learn about the recipe ingredients first:
● Fresh parsley:
Parsley is a herb used in dishes all over the world especially in America, Europe, and the Middle East. It is used to enhance the flavor of dishes. It is a nutrient-rich herb. It is rich in vitamins A, C, and K. it also has a large amount of potassium and magnesium.
Parsley is mainly used to garnish different dishes. Though it is a herb it can be used in egg bakes, sauces, and juices.
– How to chop parsley?
To chop parsley you need to follow some simple steps. First, wash and dry parsley. Keep it in the bundle, remove extra leaves from the stem, and cut the extra stem. Then chop coarsely and finely as per your dish requirements. If you want finely chopped parsley cut it at 90 degrees and run the knife twice or thrice on parsley.
To preserve parsley, seal it in a plastic bag or airtight jar and store it in a refrigerator.
● Olive Oil:
Olive oil helps transfer the flavors of foods and spices, making them good on the mouth and satisfying the appetite. Its use enhances salty and sugary flavors without guilts because of its excellent properties (although if you’re trying to lose weight, you might not want to go overboard because, like all fats, this will provides nine calories per gram).
Extra virgin olive oil and virgin olive oil, while they look great, lose their flavor when heated, making them best for raw foods. Use them to harmonize spices in a dish, to enhance and build flavor, and to add body and depth. Olive oil also balances the acidity in acidic foods such as tomatoes, vinegar, wine, and lemon juice. Carefully treat olive oil and combine its flavors with the flavors of the other ingredients in dishes you carefully prepare.
Black pepper is widely used in cooking around the world. It is often called “King of Spices”. Black pepper and its active ingredient, piperine, can have strong antioxidant activity, increase the absorption of certain nutrients and beneficial compounds.
The amount of black pepper commonly used in cooking and additives up to 20 mg piperine appears to be safe. However, black pepper can increase drug absorption and should be used with caution when combined with some medications. Black pepper is a flexible ingredient that can be added to a variety of recipes, including meat, fish, eggs, salads, and soups. Available at most grocery stores.
Eggs are a universal food and many people like them fried, boiled, scrambled, or baked. They are easy to incorporate into food. Eggs may be the most important ingredient in your fridge! They’re nutritious, they taste great, and their physical properties and components make them indispensable in the kitchen. Eggs are used to cover food with crumbs, flour, etc. as eggs help to adhere to these ingredients and give a brown appearance when cooked. Eggs have a sticky nature that allows them to glue two pieces of dough or noodles or to provide a sticky surface for sprinkling seeds.
● Cream cheese
Cream cheese is a soft cheese having a mild taste. It is usually used in loaves of bread, and crackers. It is formed cream but sometimes from milk and cream. Cream cheese is loaded with fat and is rich in vitamin A and riboflavin. It is low in protein and has less shelf life.
Nutmeg is a spice that comes from the nutmeg tree. It is mostly found in Indonesia. Nutmeg is frequently used in desserts and beverages. It can be best paired with cream and cheese-based recipes. Nutmeg has a nutty and slightly sweet taste that has a strong aroma. It should be used carefully and a certain should be added in the dish otherwise it will change the taste. It can be added as a whole or grated.
