Condiments & Oils

Getting in the habit of cooking simple meals, such as steamed veggies with beans and grain, will save you time and energy. Instead of adding complicated sauces, create a condiment tray for your table so that you and your family/guests can personalize every meal. Rotating trays, often called Lazy Susans, are perfect for making condiments visible and accessible.

Here are some recommended condiments worthy of experimentation. Feel free to add your favorites, and use organic whenever possible. Look for those with minimal ingredients, additives, and processing.
