Honey and Rosemary Marinade

Purchased marinades are often loaded with salt. While salt add taste, a kidney friendly marinade shouldn’t require added salt and should taste good without it. That’s why I created this simple honey and rosemary marinade.

It’s a sweet marinade that adds just a light garlic and rosemary flavor to enhance the taste of food you want to marinate.

Renal modifications

Less sugar

You can use less honey or just skip it and replace it with more oil or lemon juice if necessary. If the final volume of honey-free marinade is enough for you, just use it as is.

However, take note that this will affect the ratio of ingredients, therefore the overall nutritional values.

How to make this marinade

For this honey and rosemary marinade, you just need to combine all the ingredients and let rest your meat, tofu or any other foods you want in it.

I generally prefer to use reusable containers, but it’s easier to completely marinate something in a freezer bag. This ask for less marinade for the same amount of food.

Marinating meat

You can marinate any food you want to, but if you use this honey and rosemary marinade to marinate meat, remember to never reuse marinade that have been in contact with raw meat.
