Masala Chai Tea

Masala Chai Tea

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.

Tamarind-Maple-Glazed Acorn Squash with Chile Yogurt

Tamarind-Maple-Glazed Acorn Squash with Chile Yogurt

"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.

(The Best) Lemon + Oregano Greek Potatoes

(The Best) Lemon + Oregano Greek Potatoes

These will be the best Greek potatoes you've ever tasted...crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.  All with a wonderful lemon, garlic, and oregano flavor.  They go well with any Greek dish, but especially roast lamb or lamb chops.  But of course they're still also wonderful cold, for breakfast, right out of the fridge!

Spicy Sautéed Shiitakes

Spicy Sautéed Shiitakes

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.

Room Temperature Hericots Verts with Black Truffle + Sesame

Room Temperature Hericots Verts with Black Truffle + Sesame

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!

Grilled Vegetables with Tuscan Oil + Herb Dressing

Grilled Vegetables with Tuscan Oil + Herb Dressing

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.

Carrots Roasted with Maple Salmon Rub (Vegan)

Another delicious way to use our most popular spice blend, Maple Salmon Rub, is on roasted root vegetables. These are the most delicious carrots ever! Keep an eye on them, the granulated maple can darken quickly at the end of cooking time.

Great Dane (An Aquavit Salty Dog) Cocktail

Great Dane (An Aquavit Salty Dog) Cocktail

What a fun cocktail for camping! We love the use of Vanilla Bean Sea Salt to amp up the flavor with zero added effort. From one of our most popular summer cookbooks, author Emily Vikre has won us over with this one.

Smashed Cucumber with Tahini and Everything Chile Oil

Smashed Cucumber with Tahini and Everything Chile Oil

"A surprising juxtaposition of texture and flavor -- fresh, palate-cleansing cucumbers paired with an earthy sesame dressing, enlivened by a daring spicy oil." - Hetty McKinnon, To Asia, With Love

This simple salad is great to serve as a snack or as a side to a bowl of noodles. Smashing the cucumbers tenderizes them, while a sprinkling of salt delivers a lovely pickle-like quality. It was delicious!

Everything Chile Oil

Everything Chile Oil

"This is my version of Szechuan Chile oil (sometimes called mala hot sauce), which I have called 'everything oil' because, well, it makes everything taste better." - Hetty McKinnon, To Asia, With Love

Hetty has never led us wrong before, so we made the oil and have now used it three times since! Mixed into mayonnaise on corn on the cob, as a marinade for grilled eggplant, and as a dumpling dipping sauce. It was a ton of fun to work with such unique ingredients... Korean Chile flakes (Gochugaru), Szechuan Peppercorns, Star Anise, and more. A serious flavor bomb...

We topped our tomatoes with SKORDO Greek Seasoning, a natural pairing. Use it as a base recipe with your favorite seasoning, see variation ideas in note below.
