If you cook me in conventional metal cookware, you need to soak me overnight before cooking, AND many of my nutrients might be lost! But there is a secret way around: use the ancient method of cooking me in clay pot.
Helpful hint: Miriam’s Earthen Cookware is a pioneering company that makes pure clay pots from tested all-natural clay without ANY additives, they make it by hand to keep it free of contaminants and chemicals!
By cooking me in a pure clay pot, you wouldn’t just preserve my nutritional value and natural taste, you would also save a lot of time! It takes about 30 minutes to cook me in clay on medium heat (4-5 cups) – no need to soak.
When cooking me in clay, wash me thoroughly in 1-2 changes of water and use twice the quantity of water as me with select spices and vegetables. I can be a part of a variety of recipes to try in clay pots – I am great with salads too!
So, don’t wait any longer, get your pure-clay pot today and start cooking me in the healthiest way. You can also cook many other recipes and kinds of food in the same pot!
