Anni Brownjohn, President of Ozganics Australia is here in Malaysia to promote her line of organic products as well as conduct several cooking demos in Jaya Grocer, Empire Shopping Gallery. Organic food has garnered an unfair reputation as bland, boring and tasteless, but Anni is on a mission to change minds and lives by telling the world the benefits of eating organics and that they can be every bit as delicious.
Anni, with the assistance of the talented Chef Ryan Khang showed us how to make 3 dishes using Anni's Ozganics product plus a bonus dish of organic sprouted multigrain bread by Ryan and his team. Anni's range of products with include sauces, dressing and marinades are certified organic by the Australian government as well as being gluten-free and dairy-free with no preservatives.
Firstly, Anni showed us how to make a simple Thai pumpkin soup using the Ozganics Thai Red Curry Simmer Sauce. The smooth and slightly spicy soup was finished off with a squeeze of lime juice, fresh coriander and some organic soy sauce. Next we got a taste of Moroccan chicken with lemon and olives, using her Ozganics Lemon Chicken Simmer Sauce, served with organic quinoa. This can be prepared in under 30 minutes. Anni also showed us her colorful watermelon and feta salad with three different dressings - lemon myrtle, creamy garlic and creamy avocado. Finally, we tried Chef Ryan's gorgeous multigrain bread with Ozganics' Fig Spread - we liked the spread so much that we bought a bottle home.
