5 Tasty Tips for Gourmet Meals on a Budget

Cooking well doesn’t need to cost a fortune if you understand how to shop right and prepare foImage titleods with flavor in mind. 

Start with Staples: Begin by buying a few staples to stock your kitchen. Brown rice is a delicious yet healthy base that goes with nearly any meal; fresh vegetables and homegrown herbs turn an ordinary meal into an extraordinary entrée.

Pick a Prime: Search for one small but well-positioned object to serve as the primary focus of the meal. For example, instead of fresh salmon go with a frozen salmon steak instead. Certain recipes may even allow canned salmon substitutes. 

Cook Right: Learn how to make the most of the raw ingredients by braising, grilling, steaming, baking and cooking in a variety of ways to seal in flavor. If you use fresh ingredients, home-grown herbs and an affordable prime substitute, it’s easy to eat well without sacrificing quality or flavor when you lock in flavor by using the proper cooking technique.

Embellish: Search for ways to add a touch of color or contrast to every meal to make it more appealing than ever. 

Serve Hot: Restaurants know the secret to success is serving an item while it’s hot because heat allows the fragrance of the food to enhance the entire dining experience. Remember, taste is highly dependent on smell, so if the food looks and smells good, it usually is perceived as tasting better too.
