When I cook organic brown rice, just a spoonful of apple cider vinegar will soften the rice up faster and make it nice and plump. It's also awesome for marinating tofu. Check it out (from Refresh cookbook, Canada):
3.5 cups of sliced tofu 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar 3/4 cups tamari (or Bragg's soy sauce--no sugar or wheat or yeast-yay!) 1/4 filtered water 1.5 cups sunflower oil (I use olive oil, extra virgin first cold-pressed)
Just immerse the sliced tofu in the ingredients for at least an hour--it keeps up to 5 days. After, it's great for baking/grilling in the oven.
I also put dashes of apple cider in A LOT of my cooking--can't always taste it but it really complements a lot of flavours and it's one of those ingredients where it's okay to be fearless as long as you're not pouring tons of the stuff in. It goes super well with a tofu scramble too!
Apple cider vinegar also acts as a soothing agent for your scalp and makes your hair very shiny! Just mix 1 T with 1 cup of warm water, and rinse through your hair after shampooing. You can leave it in if you prefer, or you can rinse with lukewarm water. I do this all the time and I love the shine it gives my hair!
A bit of apple cider vinegar, a bit of oil and some salt. Stir then add kale (chopped into 2 inch pieces, washed and dried) sprinkle on some nutritional yeast and bake at 350 turning often til crispy. YUM YUM YUM
if your trying to lose weight or just even trying to do some toning you can mix 2 tablespoons of ACV with and 8oz glass of water and drink it before meals. The taste isnt bad and it keeps you from over eating and helps your body health over all.
