    Recipe Tip

    Add in chili oil for more spice!

Cooking with Cilantro

An herb with a fresh, citrusy taste, cilantro is a delicious addition to many cuisines from Mexican to Asian. It can be found in salsas, marinades, dressings, as a garnish or a way to enhance rice. From Baja Fish Tacos with Cilantro Cream to Cilantro Lime Rice, cilantro can add a depth of flavor for many people. However, some people aren’t fans; if this is you or one of your guests, you can opt to use parsley and lemon juice instead! 

Tastes Better with Turmeric!

An earthy, bitter and slightly peppery spice, the bright orange of the turmeric root offers a level of complexity for many dishes. It is most commonly used as an ingredient in curry powder and found in many Middle Eastern and South Asian dishes, but there are many versatile ways to use turmeric!  Make sure to keep a jar of the powder in your spice cabinet and get creative!
