Based on Cari Karonis’ at home recipe for chai, we can't get enough of this warming spice blend. Cari is a founder of SKORDO and coffee enthusiast. She’s been making a version of the blend for years and the decision to add it to our collection was a long time coming. This aromatic, spicy Masala Chai Spice Blend will warm not only your body but your soul too.
"Fruity, tangy tamarind joins forces with maple syrup to heighten the earthy sweetness of roasted squash. Cool yogurt spiked with smoky chiles adds more layers of flavor and texture" With some adaptations to utilize SKORDO ingredients, this recipe from Everyone's Table by Gregory Gourdet was a delightful way to dive into the fall season.
As the book suggests, it's perfect to hold-over between meals and open your mind + palette while restoring you from the day. I prepared this as a supplement for my family while they waited for Stewed Pork to cook from Everyone's Table. I could only find ashwagandha in capsule form, so I opt'd out of using it here. Turmeric is a spice superhero and provides too many benefits to count, so the drink is still very immune boosting.It was certainly a hit, served either warm or cold.
This recipe from Upgrade Your Immunity by Dr. Joseph Mercola is meant to be sipped early in the morning, on an empty stomach, to stimulate digestion and begin some detoxification. Plus, the cinnamon will regulate your blood sugar. It was a nice jumpstart to the morning!
Sometimes you remove the carbs and cheese and you really miss them. That was not the case with this recipe, and that's all to do with the powerful flavor of Jerk Seasoning. We hand blend coconut sugar, onion, garlic, paprika, allspice, and more to create this unique and iconic blend. This classic spicy Jamaican blend adds a ton of flavor to otherwise boring chicken breast, and the creamy Greek Yogurt sauce on top plus your favorite sweet salsa is a delicious combination. We ate this last weekend for dinner, wanting to eat healthy after a weekend of fried food, and it was (literally) finger-licking good. We've never been to Jamaica, but this recipe will help pass the time until we can try more from this delicious cuisine. Give it a try!
This hearty one pot meal is something that belongs at everyone's table. Fitting that it comes from Everyone's Table by Greggory Gourdet. After a drunken car crash, and decades of tearing down his body with work and recreation, Greggory "took stock of his body and decided to start caring for it instead" He did this by exploring new forms of exercises and different styles of diets until he found the balance. He refers to this book as "a reflection of the food he cooks for his friends and for himself", it has become an incredible variety of fulfilling foods, that you wouldn't immediately recognize as carefully formulated + nutritionally balanced. He describes the women in his family as "each having a fragrance", and recalls dishes reflective of each of them. This love, and these depths of flavors, carry over throughout the book, with Haitian influence. It was hard to choose where to start, but with a rainy day ahead of me, I went for the stewed pork, using some of SKORDO's dried chiles.
Our Greek Seasoning is the perfect compliment to your favorite veggies from the garden. This salad has become our go-to for a simple and delicious side for a group as it works well with veggies that are grilled or roasted and can be served warm or room temperature. Make the components ahead of time and toss together prior to serving. Serves 10 and leftovers keep well in the fridge.
This recipe from Vegetable Simple by Eric Ripert is a great staple to have on hand for snacks or sides. From start to finish it truly only takes 5 minutes! I used dried mushrooms, and finished with SKORDO Sriracha Sea Salt + SKORDO Herbes de Provence, these are all pantry staples for me so this was perfect.
Who knew Aleppo Chile Flakes and Black Truffle Salt went together so well? Vanessa Seder did. This recipe from Vanessa's cookbook 'Eat Cool: Good Food for Hot Days' had us convinced it was the best version of haricot verts we've ever had. Haricot verts are the more refined version of green beans; they are thinner, longer and straighter and more refined in taste. This dish is great for summer or fall parties because it can be served room temperature or even cold, and the beans stay firm throughout the party. Enjoy!
This herb and spice blend dressing is delicious on grilled vegetables or a traditional salad. The Tuscan Oil Blend has a medium heat because of the crushed red pepper flakes - adjust for your taste. We've listed the vegetables we used (what we had in our pantry/garden), but you can use whatever vegetables you like. Asparagus, eggplant, green onions, or bell peppers would also be delicious.
