Alchemy Oil is one of those oils I always have on hand. Drizzle it on potatoes, winter squash, rice, or scrambled eggs, or add vinegar and turn it into a salad dressing. This oil magically makes everything taste good! If I’m in a hurry, I do a quick vegetable sauté with this oil, and the meal tastes as if I’d been cooking in the kitchen for hours.


  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon powdered turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon powdered paprika
  • 1 tablespoon powdered coriander
  • 2 teaspoons powdered mustard seed
  • 1 teaspoon powdered cinnamon
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vodka


Mix all ingredients together, then transfer to a container of choice. Shake mixture thoroughly before each use.
