RA Cooking Tips

  • Ginger & Turmeric

    Fresh ginger and turmeric can be substituted for dried versions to omit the use of a blender. Use 1 Tbsp of each instead of the above 2 Tbsp.

  • Dressing

    To limit the use of hands when preparing the dressing, swap out the whisk and mixing bowl for an immersion blender. Be sure to use a tall bowl to blend together the ingredients to avoid splatters.
