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!

Creamy Corn and Shiitake Mushroom Soup

This simple soup pairs sweet corn with earthy shiitake mushrooms, achieving a delicious balance of flavors.

Also, the rich shiitake mushrooms make this dish feel more substantial than a standard vegetable soup.
