Fried fresh food
in Begin Here
I'm not sure which options to choose when creating a recipe.
I start a lot of dishes by frying (olive oil) some fresh garlic and chopped ginger root.
I'm not sure which items to choose from the database.
For example, I can see:
Doree, Fried Garlic (but this is a ready product - with some unknown seasoning or oil)
For ginger, I don't seem to be able to find anything relevant.
What would be the best choice of items to represent:
Heating some olive oil and adding some chopped fresh ginger, and garlic cloves?
I understand that it's never going to be 100% accurate but at least some close approximation.
I would recommend using the following foods in your recipe:
Olive Oil, Food #450087
Garlic, Fresh, Food #462581
Ginger Root, Raw, Food #454800
As always, any and all postings here are covered by our T&Cs:
When you use olive oil to saute veggies for example, how do you calculate the calories? or where in the nutrition data base do I find the answer?
I usually just go by the amount of oil I use. I have started cooking all my food in the same oil, as well.
