Ingredients such as organic spices, Malaysian sustainable palm oil and grass-fed beef can liven up family meals while also caring for our planet.
If it seems like your supermarket’s cooking oil aisle has more choices than ever before, you’re probably right. In addition to multiple varieties of corn, canola, olive and soybean oil, you’ll likely find cooking oil blends some of which may include palm oil.
Families trying to eat cleaner, more natural meals are happy to learn that non-GMO palm oil is an increasingly popular ingredient in prepared foods. Palm oil comes from the fruit of the oil palm tree which grows in lush plantations near the equator. Malaysian sustainable palm oil is preferred by many American companies because the Malaysian palm oil industry follows environmentally friendly agricultural policies.
More than 85% of Malaysian palm oil plantations are now MSPO certified as meeting stringent sustainability standards.
No one will go back to plain mashed potatoes after they’ve tried this version, full of celery root, rutabaga and Yukon Gold potatoes and mashed with sweet garlic and tangy buttermilk and goat cheese.
