In this fast paced stressful life where we don’t get much time to workout regularly hence fresh and healthy eating is must. In order to eat healthy, cooking healthy is the necessity. Oil is the one core ingredient used in every cuisine be it Mexican or Thai and in India food without oil is beyond the bounds of possibility so it is very important to change your regular oil with a healthy oil and Fortune Rise bran oil is one such healthy oil at the right price with many benefits.

A healthy attitude is contagious but don’t wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier.–Tom Stoppard
And ‘ME‘ being the carrier, showing ‘YOU‘ some such healthy recipes…
1. Stir fried mushrooms with red bell pepper
- 2-3 tablespoons of Fortune rice bran oil
- Button mushrooms (2 packets)
- One small red bell pepper (capsicum)
- Kosher salt
- Freshly crushed black pepper
- Processed cheese
Wash button mushrooms thoroughly then cut it in half then Julienne Red bell pepper .
Take a pan; add 2-3 table spoons of Fortune rice bran oil and let it heat, as mushrooms lose its moister easily, adding it in very heated oil keeps them from much shrinking. As Rice bran oil is light, has a high smoke point and is neutral in taste hence Fortune rice bran oil.
Now add Mushrooms and red bell paper, add salt to taste, around 1-2 teaspoons crushed black pepper.
Now stir it gently. When mushrooms get soft, add shredded processed cheese switch off the flame.
Now Plate and garnish it with some shredded cheese.
2. Vinaigrette (With my signature twist) colourful salad:
Have you had your salad today? Eating salad almost every day may be one of the most healthy eating habits one can adopt — and one of the simplest, experts say.
Salads are Rich in nutrients not in calorie, rice in fiber, anti oxidants, Vitamins, Potassium, minerals, zinc. It also balances the water content of the body.
I am using Fortune RBO as a core ingredient because of its lightness and delicate and neutral taste RBO is also great for dressing salads. and also it adds to the star health benefits of any salad and helps as a precaution to many diseases.
As I always say I like to keep it sweet and tangy at the same time so… Here it is– Vinaigrette salad dressing with my signature twist.
- 3-4 teaspoons of Fortune rice bran oil
- 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (Vinaigrette is authentically made in wine vinegar but I am not using it, if you don’t have apple cider Vinegar then use white chilly vinegar)
- Kosher salt (or you can use regular salt)
- Freshly crushed black pepper
- ½-1 teaspoon of honey (To add sweetness– my signature twist)
- ½ teaspoon of oregano
- ½ teaspoon of mustard (readily available in market and to make it tangy– My signature twist)
For colorful salad:
- 2-3 juicy ripe tomatoes
- Half cucumber (whitish-green)
- Small bowl of cabbage
- Half green bell paper (capsicum)
- Carrot and reddish (according to your likings)
- Seasonal fruits (Black grapes and orange)
In a small bowl, take fortune rice bran oil, add apple cider vinegar, salt to taste, around ½ teaspoon of black pepper, honey, mustard and oregano (Crush oregano with hands before adding).
Now whisk it until the vinaigrette is emulsified. I have a cute little whisk for making salad dressings.
Roughly chop tomatoes, cucumber (don’t peel off the skin of cucumber as it is full of fibres), deseed the bell paper before dicing. Julienne cabbage. Finely chop reddish (as I don’t like its taste), cut roundels of carrot. Pun all the vegetables in a bowl.
Add Vinaigrette dressing to it.
Mix gently, top with some black grapes and Oranges.
Then Plate and Garnish.
