A recipe should taste good for you and if you don’t like it then you can subtract, add, or replace ingredients with something which you like the taste of. You can also try adding more or less of an ingredient to suit your taste, especially if it is a spice.
Salads can be very bland and salad dressing alone may be rather inadequate to satisfy your taste buds. Consider adding tasty ingredients which you may like such as diced vegetables, meat chunks, cheese, eggs, fresh bread chunks, rice, beans, nuts, seeds, fruit chunks, and yogurt and turn a bland salad into a very tasty meal.
Remember, adding a good tasting food to a good tasting food results in good tasting food no matter how strange the combination might seem to you. Don’t be afraid to experiment and remember good food will not poison you if you come up with an unusual mix which many dogmatic humans will impulsively criticize.
Don’t be afraid of social disapproval if it is a new recipe which tastes good to you. Try chicken AND beef AND pork noodle soup or three meats in one soup. It tastes delicious!!!!!!
We are omnivores and that means that we can mix anything together and eat it without bad side effects. Yes, you may want to avoid mixing milk with lemon juice but the curding which you get by doing so will not poison you or taste that bad.
If you see an ingredient in a recipe which you don’t like then exclude it or substitute it with something which you like the taste of. If you don’t like a vegetable or fruit then replace it with a vegetable or fruit which you like. If the recipe calls for wheat flour then you can frequently replace it with another kind of flour like rice or amaranth flour. If you don’t like pork then substitute chicken, beef, duck, etc.
Replace a spice with one you like the taste of or just use a pinch of it which will not be detected by your taste buds in most cases. I have added a pinch of up to 20 spices which I like and don’t like to soups and the soup still tastes delicious and you get the benefits of up to twenty spices with trace minerals and their good health benefits. Believe it or not!!!
Don’t be afraid to experiment with recipes and all that you have to do is add, subtract, or replace one or more ingredients to come up with a recipe which tastes good to you or even your spouse and offspring.
