Amba – Spiced Pickled Mango Sauce

Amba – Spiced Pickled Mango Sauce

Amba, or pickled mango sauce, originated in India but has found a home in Middle Eastern cuisine. The spices add a savory bite to the typical sweet mango chutney flavor. It's great as a dipping sauce with anything Middle Eastern, especially falafel!

Spiced Falafel

Falafel, the deep fried balls of chickpeas or fava beans infused with Middle Eastern spices and herbs, are very easy to prepare at home. If you aren't familiar with them, imagine a Middle Eastern version of a hush puppy.

Golden Turmeric Mango Smoothie

Golden Turmeric Mango Smoothie

Turmeric is the ultimate healing spice. The health benefits are incredible, but the most touted benefit of this golden root is it's active ingredient Curcumin. Curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. Throughout our lives, friends and cookbooks have told us stories of Indian parents using turmeric equally in the medicine cabinet as the spice cabinet.
