Ghee can be used in place of butter and is an ideal cooking oil, as it does not burn unless heated excessively. It makes a wonderful body oil for massage and can serve as a base for herbal ointments (for burns, skin rashes, etc.) and can even be used for lamps, with wicks made from cotton balls.

Ghee is a digestive. It helps to improve absorption and assimilation. It nourishes ojas, tejas and prana. It is good for improving memory and lubricates the connective tissue. Ghee makes the body flexible and, in small doses, is tridoshic. Ghee is a yogavahi—a catalytic agent that carries the medicinal properties of herbs into the seven dhatus or tissues of the body. Ghee pacifies pitta and vata and is acceptable, in moderation, for kapha. Persons who already have high cholesterol or suffer from obesity should be cautious in using ghee. Ghee is not to be used when there are high ama (toxic) conditions.


Lamb Burgers with Feta Sauce and Cucumbers
By using lamb instead of beef, and feta cheese instead of American, we've given these burgers an international makeover, creating a Greek recipe that can't miss.
PREP: 15 MINS TOTAL TIME: 30 MINS SERVINGS: 4
INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 pounds ground lamb
2 teaspoons curry powder
3 scallions, thinly sliced
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
8 slices country bread (each 1/2 inch thick), toasted, if desired
1 Kirby cucumber, cut lengthwise into ribbons with a vegetable peeler
DIRECTIONS
In a medium bowl, combine lamb, curry powder, and 2 sliced scallions; season generously with salt and pepper. Mix gently with a fork (do not overmix); form into 4 oval patties to fit on bread (each 1 inch thick).
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Season patties with salt and pepper. Cook until browned and just cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side (reduce heat if browning too quickly).
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix feta, yogurt, and remaining scallion, mashing cheese gently to combine; season with salt and pepper.
Spread 4 slices of bread with feta mixture; top with cucumbers, lamb patties, and remaining bread.
COOK'S NOTE
Vegetable peelers can slice as well as peel; use one along the length of a Kirby. The ribbons will stay put on a burger and ensure some crunch in each bite.
Merguez, the spicy lamb sausages of North Africa, are popular throughout France. These nearly labor-free patties are a quick way to re-create them in your kitchen. The sweetness of the raisin couscous contrasts nicely with the meat's deep spice.

An egg is a tremendous serving of vitamins and nutrients in a convenient, low-cal single serve package.

One large egg only has about 72 Calories.

Yet it provides 12.5% of your daily recommended protein, 14% riboflavin and 8% or more of the daily value for several other nutrients including vitamins A, D, E, B-6, B-12, folate, iron, phosphorus, and zinc.

People used to worry that eggs were too high in cholesterol to be healthy. Not true! Studies have shown that eating eggs has no effect on blood cholesterol level or coronary heart disease incidence.

Have you ever heard of choline? If not, you’re not alone. Its role in human health was only discovered a few years ago. It is an essential nutrient for cell function, as well as liver, brain and nerve function, and plays a role in memory, heart health and transporting nutrients throughout your body. Pregnant women, mothers and babies, especially, require large amounts of choline. It is necessary for fetal brain development and milk production.

Studies have shown that most Americans do not get nearly enough choline in their diets. Fortunately, eggs have a substantial amount! Just two large eggs contain about half of the recommended amount of choline.

There are only a few foods that contain Vitamin D. These include fatty fish and—you guessed it!—eggs. Recently, the USDA discovered that eggs have even more Vitamin D than previously thought. Vitamin D is necessary for the absorption and use of calcium. It leads to healthy bones.

Eggs also contain lutein and zeaxanthin, for eye health and to help prevent cataracts and macular degeneration. The human body is better able to absorb eye-healthy lutein from eggs than from other dietary sources, according to studies.

Brown and white eggs are the same nutritionally—the difference is the breed of hen that laid them.

Raw eggs can be kept refrigerated for 4-5 weeks. They should not be stored in the refrigerator door, because the temperature changes from opening and closing the door may cause the egg to deteriorate rapidly. They should also not be stored with anything particularly odorous, as they will absorb odors and flavors through the shell.

If you refrigerate some hard-boiled eggs, however, they should be eaten within a week.

The yolk contains a higher proportion of nutrients, vitamins and minerals and protein than the white.

WHEAT BERRIES WITH BRAISED BEEF AND PARSNIPS
BY MARK BITTMAN NOVEMBER 2010 THE FOOD MATTERS COOKBOOK

A rich, substantial wintertime stew that benefits from fresh vegetables added late enough that they don't turn to mush. To turn this into a delicious twist on the Belgian classic, beef carbonnade, omit the wine and use your favorite dark beer in place of half of the stock.

YIELD4 servings
INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons olive oil
12 ounces boneless beef chuck or round, cut into large cubes
Salt and black pepper
2 onions, cut into wedges
4 garlic cloves, sliced
1/2 cup red wine
4 cups beef or vegetable stock or water, or more as needed
3/4 cup wheat berries
1 bay leaf
1 sprig fresh thyme, or several pinches dried
1 pound parsnips, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
 Buy all at Roche Bros.

PREPARATION

1. Put the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. When it's hot, add the beef a few pieces at a time, turning as they cook and sprinkling with salt and pepper. (Don't crowd or the cubes will not brown properly; cook in batches if necessary.) Brown the meat well on all sides, 5 to 10 minutes total.
2. As the pieces brown, remove them with a slotted spoon. Pour off all but 3 tablespoons of the fat from the pan and turn the heat down to medium. Add the onions and garlic and cook, stirring, until softened and beginning to color, 5 to 10 minutes. Add the wine and cook, stirring to scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan, for a minute or 2. Add the stock, wheat berries, bay leaf, thyme, and meat and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down so the liquid bubbles gently. Cover and cook, undisturbed, for 1 hour.
3. Uncover the pot; the mixture should still be wet and the wheat berries almost fully tender. If not, add a little more liquid, cover, and cook for another 15 minutes, then check again; the grains should be tender and the mixture soupy but not swimming in liquid. If not, repeat this step until they're ready.
4. Add the parsnips, turn the heat up for a minute or so to bring the liquid back to a boil, then lower the heat and cover again. Cook, stirring once or twice, until the parsnips are tender but not too soft, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and thyme sprig, then taste and adjust the seasoning. (The stew can be made ahead to this point and refrigerated for up to 3 days; reheat gently before proceeding.) Garnish with parsley and serve.
