Rice Vinegar Swaps
One goal of mine this year is to cut out as much added sugar from my diet as possible. Did you know rice vinegar has many useful recipe swaps that can actually replace sugary dressings and marinades.
You can buy NAKANO rice vinegars in grocery stores nationwide. There are seven clean-label varieties and two organic offerings. (YAY for the organic loving friends!)
NAKANO is a flavorful ingredient I always try to have on hand in the kitchen. It’s so easy to use as a healthy substitute for many things. In fact, when you fix your winter meals, splash on any of the NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegars as a savory, low-calorie alternative to high-fat dressings, marinades, oils or butter.
Here are just some of my favorites rice vinegar swap ideas!
Just splash on some seasoned NAKANO Rice Vinegar on your salad for a huge burst of flavor! This is my favorite way to enjoy rice vinegar. I also add some garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper. It’s amazing how easy this is and it brings out the flavor of the veggies.
Put your favorite raw meat in a zipped up bag with spices and rice vinegar. The results are juicy meat with less fat and calories and TONS of flavor.
Splash some rice vinegar on your raw veggies before you steam them. Then, enjoy the tangy flavor of the veggies.
My Favorite Variety of Rice Vinegar
As you can see in the picture above, I really enjoy the roasted garlic rice vinegar the best. I even enjoyed it on my baked potato instead of butter! I really enjoy the addition of the garlic with the other seasonings in the rice vinegar.
