Seasoned Coconut Oil Dip or Dressing

Submitted by: CHRISTINEGIBSON

Introduction

Natural coconut oil is a medium-length fatty acid, but not the kind your doctor warned you about, which are long-length artery-clogging, health destroying and weight-increasing fatty acids, says Bruce Fife, C.N., N.D. When taken as a supplement, used in cooking, or applied directly to the skin, coconut oil has been found to (1) promote weight loss; (2) increase metabolism; (3) help protect against heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and many other degenerative diseases; (4) prevent premature aging of the skin; (5) strengthen the immune system; and (6) improve digestion. You can use this as a dip or as a spread for bread, a topping for pasta or vegetables, or a salad dressing. This dressing is especially good over my Healthy Thyroid Salad. If used as part of a coconut diet, this quantity will satisfy 3.5 tablespoons of coconut oil daily.

Ingredients

    Cold pressed non-GMO Extra Virgin organic coconut oil from the Philippines, onion, garlic, basil, oregano, paprika, salt, cayenne or black pepper to taste.

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat until mixture just begins to simmer. Turn off the heat and let sit until cool. Don't overheat; your goal is not to cook it but just help the flavors blend. If not used immediately, mixture will solidify. Put container in hot water to reliquify. Do not microwave.
