3 surprising tips on how to use orange juice + bonus for beauty
Marinating and grilling
Have you ever tried orange juice marinade? Try something new and instead of a classic marinade – mix orange juice with your favourite spices, such as dried garlic, oregano, thyme, basil or black pepper. For a touch of Asian cuisine, try this salmon recipe with orange-mustard sauce.
If you like grilling, try smearing meat on the grill with orange juice, it will make it extra juicy!
The basis of every good dressing is olive oil and a sour element. We know this from the combination of olive oil + vinegar.
Why not try a combination of peanut butter and orange juice, where peanut butter replaces oil as a source of fat and orange juice adds acidity and freshness at the same time. If you’re not a fan of nut butters, try this citrus dressing.
Scrambled eggs on another level
Yes, you read that correctly. Orange juice in a scrambled eggs recipe. You cannot taste the orange juice flavour, it only gives it a delicate sweet taste. For scrambled eggs for two people you will need 5 eggs, 2 tablespoons of orange juice, 2 tablespoons of milk, chopped chives, a spoon of butter, salt and pepper. Heat the butter in a pan, and add the rest of the ingredients, stirring until the dish is ready. Trust us, you will not regret it.
Orange juice can also be used outside the kitchen. Try making a homemade lip balm without unnecessary chemicals.
