More Than a Topping: Unleash the Power of Unilever’s Food Products in Your Cooking

Cooking is not just about following recipes, but it is an art form that involves creativity, innovation, and mastering essential culinary techniques. While cooking, we all look for ways to make our meals delicious, nutritious, and memorable. Unilever’s food products have always been associated with enhancing food flavors and elevating dishes to the next level. This blog post is all about utilizing Unilever’s food products beyond just toppings and transforming them into secret weapons for your cooking.

Good marinades require the right blend of seasoning, fat*, and vinegar. Seasonings add flavor, and oils like those found in Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayo, Hellmann’s, or Best Foods mayonnaise retain the moisture lost during the cooking process. When it comes to vinegar, mustard is a great choice as it breaks down fibers and makes the meat tender. Maille mustards or Sir Kensington’s Spicy Brown Mustard are some of the best options available on the market.

Apart from flavor, mustards like Maille mustard or Sir Kensington’s Spicy Brown Mustard also act as a great binder. Binders are essential to smoking meats as they help seasoning stick to the meat while their rich flavor permeates into the meat during the cook.

Knorr bouillons are another go-to product of Unilever’s that can be used for more than you might think. Bouillons are known to add depth and complexity to soups, stews, and gravies. However, when used as part of a seasoning blend, they can bring out more flavor in meats, vegetables, and even in your morning eggs. An exciting seasoning blend that you can try is combining paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and Knorr beef or chicken bouillon. You can use this blend to season meats, potatoes, carrots, and onions before roasting or grilling them.

Cooking is all about experimentation, and Unilever’s food products provide endless possibilities to transform your dishes into unforgettable creations. From combining mayos and mustards for marinades, using Knorr bouillons as seasonings, to infusing bouillons with herbs and spices, Unilever’s products have got you covered. Next time you cook, unleash the power of Unilever’s food products and take your meals to the next level!

*When we hear the word ‘fats,’ our minds might automatically jump to unhealthy and greasy food options. But in the world of cooking, fats can come in many different forms and can actually have health benefits for our bodies. Healthy oils, like the ones found in Hellmann’s and Best Food Vegan Mayonnaise, can add flavor and texture to our meals without any of the guilt. And let’s not forget about reusing bacon drippings – while it may not be the healthiest option, it certainly adds a rich and savory flavor to dishes. Incorporating healthy fats into our cooking can improve heart health, reduce inflammation, and even improve brain function. So don’t be afraid to experiment with different types of fats in the kitchen – your taste buds and your body will thank you.
