Let every meal be a medical prescription
This is one of my favourite rapid recipes. I love it on oatcakes with cheese, added to omelettes, spread over hot cheese and toast and I do have friends who love it on the side of their roast dinner! It has numerous uses and health benefits and can be added as a quick flavour boost to dishes.
1 bulb of garlic, cloves removed but purple skins left on
4 red chillies
A walnut sized piece of ginger
10ml of apple cider vinegar (raw is best)
60ml extra virgin, cold pressed olive oil
Crush the garlic with the back of a knife and leave aside for a few minutes.
In the meantime wash and destalk the chillies, cut in half and add to a mini blender. Peel the ginger and chop in half adding to the chillies along with the garlic cloves, cider vinegar and olive oil. Blend to a coarse mixture and store in a glass jar in the fridge.

- De-congests the lungs
- Increases protection against cancer
