My first glimpse inside the Spice Breeze package.
Everything that came in my Spice Breeze package.
So what is all this stuff?
My box insert
The reverse tells us a little bit more about the featured location of the month, Canaima, Venezuela
Our first spice kit in our package for the month is a Reunionese Culinary Spice Kit. This recipe is from the cultural melting pot of the La Reunion region of France and uses spicy smoked sausages or chicken.
There are two spice packets included with this kit. The first includes thyme, turmeric, ginger and bay leaves and the second includes Makrut Lime Leaves.
Our second spice kit is a South American dish – Carne Asada. This is one of my favorite types of tacos and I am super jazzed to have received this!
Our spice packet for this meal includes tangerine peel, cumin, garlic, chipotle pepper flakes, oregano and black pepper.
The final spice kit is a Persian dish called Ghormeh Sabzi. This stew is vegetarian (or not) and is really customizable in my humble option. That’s why I decided to make this for the month.
The first packet for this kit includes methi or fenugreek leaves and the second include omani limes and turmeric
Okay so first –
We saute in a pot our onions and garlic until they are transluscent
Then we add the leek and fry until it’s soft. Then we add our herbs and our first spice packet. We will cook this until it turns brown and stir frequently so it doesn’t burn.
This recipe was so easy to create … one of my last steps was to add beans (the recipe called for kidney but I subbed them for what I had), a cup of water and our second spice packet as well as salt and pepper. You’ll mix, cover and cook for about 20 minutes stirring occasionally. If desired you can add more water.
Oh yeah- I added some harissa paste for a pop of spice too!
You can serve this with rice – but I didn’t. It was fine for a weekday lunch as is!
So in summary
Presentation: Everything was packaged well and arrived to me perfectly in my subscription from Spice Breeze
Quality: I love that the spices in this subscription are both organic and non- gmo. Such great quality
Curation: Considering we can select from the menus that Spice Breeze creates the dishes that we receive I’d say the curation is excellent!
