Crispy Sweet Chili Zucchini with Lime-Almond Dipping Sauce

May 20 2019 Oh My Veggies 

We love zucchini! Even more we love breaded zucchini that tastes like fried! And then because you can’t have breaded zucchini without an accompanying sauce, we upped the snack ante with a spicy, tangy Lime-Almond Dipping Sauce on the side. Kind of like a peanut sauce, but with almond butter instead. The result is an Asian-inspired twist on breaded zucchini that will satisfy even the pickiest of snackers. And the best news? Rice cakes aren’t boring anymore! Disclosure: Brandfluential sponsored the development of this recipe and asked me to share Lundberg’s Rice Cake Double Take contest, but all opinions are my own.

Nut-free Gluten-free Options. Jump to Recipe You all love my simple cakes! Here’s another simple Apple cake that is served with a vanilla custard!

The batter is topped with a little coconut sugar mixture to make a caramelized and spiced crust. Serve it warm with the creamy 5 ingredient vegan custard.

Scallion Pancakes

March 25 2019 Meatless Monday 

These 3-ingredient Vegan Scallion Pancakes are incredibly delicious and very easy to make. Theyre also known as green onion pancakes and can be made with chives or leeks too. This recipe comes to us from Bianca Zapatka . See the step-by-step photos on her blog . Want more meatless recipes like this? Subscribe to our newsletter  for a weekly selection of plant-based recipes delivered right to your inbox! Makes 4 pancakes 2  cups  all-purpose flour (250g) 3/­­4  tsp  salt 3/­­4  cup  warm water (180ml) 1 1/­­3  cup  finely sliced scallions  green part only 4  tbsp  cooking oil  plus more for brushing   1. In a large bowl, mix the flour and salt. Then pour in the water and stir with chopsticks or a fork until all the water has been absorbed. 2. Using your hands, knead all the bits of dough together. (If your dough is still very dry after a bit of kneading, add 1-2 tbsp more water*). Then transfer dough to a working surface and continue kneading until the dough is smooth and soft, about 5 minutes. 3. Shape the dough into a round ball. Cover with foil (or a damp towel) and let rest for 20-30 minutes. After resting time, divide the dough into 4 equal sized pieces and shape them into balls. (Work with one piece at a time and cover the remaining pieces so they wont get dry). 4. On a lightly floured working surface, roll out one piece into a very thin circle. 5. Brush the circle with a bit of oil, and sprinkle about 1/­­3 cup chopped scallions all over the dough. 6. Roll up the dough into a log. Take one end of the log and curl it into a snail. 7. Use your hands to flatten the dough a bit, then use your rolling pin to roll it out again to another circle, about 8-/­­9-inch (20/­­22cm) in diameter. (Dont worry if some scallions poke out through the dough). 8. Repeat with the remaining dough pieces and stack them as you go, separating with parchment paper. 9. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan over medium heat and pan-fry each side of one pancake for about 2-3 minutes until golden-brown and crispy. Repeat with remaining pancakes, adding about 1 tbsp oil per pancake. 10. Cut Scallion Pancakes into quarters and serve hot with dipping sauce. Notes The pancakes are best eaten when hot. Theyll be still good when cooled, but will no longer be crispy. If you still have any fried pancakes left, you can reheat them in the oven. Sprinkle some grated non-dairy cheese on top and bake for a few minutes until crispy again. If they got a bit hard overnight, you could also put them in the microwave for a few seconds. * The ideal flour water ratio may vary slightly depending on the kind of flour you use and how you measure it.   The post Scallion Pancakes appeared first on Meatless Monday.

Bali Butter

March 12 2019 My New Roots 

Bali Butter I miss Bali. Or maybe I just miss the warmth, the sun, the vibrancy, the life bursting forth from every nook and cranny. I miss living outside, I miss my eyes being assaulted by colours, and layers upon layers of wild sounds, but hey, its March in Ontario and this is a familiar feeling. Are you feeling it too? A couple weeks ago when I was in the depths of yet another snowstorm, feeling like spring may never come, I came up with this recipe to remedy my winter woes. Its called Bali Butter - and its the most delicious thing to cross my lips since I could see grass outside my window. A rich combination of cashews, coconut, and cacao, blended together with coconut sugar and salt, its like the nut butter of DREAMS in all of its salty-sweet-crunchy-chocolatey glory. And I am really excited to share this one with you, wherever you and no matter what season youre experiencing. What does one do with Bali Butter, you ask? Let me tell you, it goes on all. the. things. Pancakes, waffles, smoothie bowls, toast, rice cakes, ice cream, fruit salad, porridge, yogurt, and fingers! You can stuff dates with Bali Butter, stick them in the fridge and have something delicious on hand to satisfy those salty-sweet-fat cravings too. Slice a banana lengthwise, slather Bali Butter in the middle and sandwich it together again. I even like it with carrot sticks. No joke. I chose to use coconut sugar in my Bali Butter because its one of the main sweeteners used on the island and you can easily find it everywhere. Some of you may be curious about using liquid sweetener as an alternative, but the problem with using something like maple syrup or honey, is that it causes the nut butter to seize up. Fat is hydrophobic (translation: its afraid of water) and will stiffen when it comes into contact with anything that contains it. Using a solid sweetener, like coconut sugar, avoids this problem and keeps the finished product relaxed and runny. If you dont want to use coconut sugar and you dont mind a less-spreadable version of Bali Butter, sweeten it with whatever you have on hand. I think Ive talked about all of these ingredients respectively, but for the heck of it, lets recap why theyre awesome! Coconut - Once a maligned food for its saturated fat content, coconut has taken center stage in the wellness world, as scientific research has confirmed that the type of fat in coconut integrates differently in the body, compared to other saturated fats. MCTs (medium-chain-triglycerides) are a type of fat that can be broken down quickly and used as fuel, instead of being stored, so its prefect for people who enjoy an active lifestyle. Coconut also contains a surprising amount of protein, about 14% by weight, and impressive amounts of manganese.   Cashews - Contrary to popular belief, cashews have a lower fat content than most nuts. And 66% of their fats are heart-healthy, monounsaturated fats, like those found in olive oil. Cashews are an excellent source of copper, and a good source of magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc. They also contain good amounts of fiber, so that they keep you feeling full for longer.  Cacao - One of the best sources of magnesium found in nature, in addition to containing high amounts calcium, zinc, iron, copper, sulfur, and potassium, cacao is a nutritional powerhouse. It also contains many chemical compounds that enhance physical and mental well-being, including alkaloids, proteins, magnesium, beta-carotene, leucine, linoleic acid, lipase, lysine, and some neurotransmitters such as dopamine and anandamide - which explains why eating chocolate makes you feel so darn good! Coconut sugar - Sometimes called coconut palm sugar, this incredibly delicious sweetener is high in minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron. It is happily low glycemic, ranking 35 on the GI scale, compared to agave at 42, honey at 55, cane sugar at 68. This is due to coconut sugars composition of long-chain saccharides, which are absorbed by the body at a slower rate than something like refined white sugar. Coconut sugar also contains amino acids, which are thought to slow down the rate at which the sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream, acting as a buffer of sorts.  Some notes on the recipe. Its very important that you make coconut butter to start, as it creates the liquid base to help the get the cashews going in the food processor. Once youve made the coconut-cashew butter, feel free to stop there (it tastes incredible on its own), or go all the way as I have and add the cacao, coconut sugar and salt. I like to leave my Bali Butter out of the fridge, since it remains liquid and spreadable at room temperature. If you refrigerate it, Bali Butter with harden completely. You can roll it into balls and make yourself some pretty delicious little energy bites when its in this state, but its impossible to drizzle when chilled.   If youre into smooth nut butters, simply leave the cacao nibs out of the equation. They arent necessary for any other purpose than crunch, which I personally feel is essential, but I wont judge anyone for skipping them. Even though youre obviously crazy     Print recipe     Bali Butter  Makes 3 cups /­­ 750ml Ingredients: 3 cups /­­ 375g raw cashews 3 cups /­­ 240g unsweetened desiccated coconut   3/­­4 tsp. large flake sea salt (I used Maldon) 1/­­4 cup /­­ 23g raw cacao powder 3 Tbsp. coconut sugar 3 Tbsp. cacao nibs seeds from 1 vanilla bean Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 325°F /­­ 160°C. Spread cashews out evenly on a rimmed baking sheet and place in the preheated oven. Toast for about 10 minutes, keeping an eye on them so that they dont burn! Remove from oven and let cool. 2. While the cashews are in the oven, toast the coconut in a dry skillet over medium heat, stirring often, until slightly golden. Remove from heat and set aside. Depending on the size of your skillet, you may want to work in batches. 3. Place the coconut in a food processor. Blend on high, scraping down the sides every so often, until the coconut is creamy and smooth (this make take up to 10 minutes, depending on the strength of your food processor - be patient!). 4. Add the cashews to the food processor and blend on high until creamy and smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and blend on high. Taste and adjust saltiness /­­ sweetness /­­ chocolate levels to suit your taste. 5. Store Bali Butter in an airtight glass container at room temperature (out of the fridge) for one month.

Recipe | Sweet Potato French Toast Cups with Vanilla Cardamom Creme Anglaise

March 4 2019 Oh My Veggies 

A typical weekend breakfast in our household involves microwaved muffins or string cheese. We’re always busy on the weekends and it seems like from Saturday morning to dinnertime on Sunday, we’re running errands or working in the yard. Taking the time for a sit-down breakfast seems like a small luxury. And when we do have traditional breakfast foods like pancakes or waffles, it’s usually for dinner because I’m in no mood for cooking first thing in the morning. The wonderful thing about French toast casseroles, though, is that they can be made the night before–and really, they’re so much better when you make them ahead of time too. Although I’ve never made a French toast casserole myself, I thought I’d try one because doing most of the work the night before and simply popping it in the oven in the morning seemed like the happy medium between the string cheese breakfast and homecooked pancakes or waffles. We’d still have something delicious to sit down to, but I wouldn’t have to be flipping pancakes while groggy and cranky. Of course, a whole French toast casserole is a little too much for two people, so I decided to make Sweet Potato French […]

Earl Grey Tea Sandwich Cookies, Vegan and Gluten-Free + Giveaway

February 20 2019 Golubka Kitchen 

Earl Grey Tea Sandwich Cookies, Vegan and Gluten-Free + Giveaway This post was created in partnership with Arbor Teas /­­ Giveaway below! We come from a culture, where tea is everything. In Russia, tea is probably the most commonly consumed beverage. It’s like water, but much more popular than water. Everyone drinks it – adults, kids, and even coffee lovers. It’s acceptable to have tea after every meal, as well as as during breaks throughout the day, any time of day. If you attempt to stop by someone’s house for a quick second, you will most likely end up staying for tea. And tea time is sacred. It’s when 90% of conversations happen (or at least it seems that way). Tea time is never just tea, either, there’s always some kind of treat involved. It can really be anything sweet: hard candy, chocolate, cookies, waffles, cake, powdered sugar-dusted cranberries… Dessert is so intertwined with tea for us, that to this day we can’t enjoy anything sweet without a hot beverage. It just doesn’t taste good. We’d rather have no dessert than dessert without tea. This is especially true for cookies. Today we are super excited to be collaborating on a tea time-ready, sandwich cookie recipe with Arbor Teas, a Michigan-based tea company that carries the loveliest selection of organic and fair-trade loose leaf tea. There’s a giveaway, too! When we were dreaming up these cookies, we immediately thought about tea sandwiches – you know, those miniature, crustless sandwiches that usually accompany fancy tea. With that format in mind, we went for a layered ‘sandwich’ cookie. Earl Grey tea is probably our favorite, most nostalgia-inducing black tea, and since the Arbor Teas Earl Grey smelled so incredibly fresh (the best we’ve ever had!), we were very excited to incorporate that flavor in some way. The result: buttery, vegan and gluten-free cookies, layered with a luxurious Earl Grey cream, with a kiss of dark chocolate. They are the perfect cross between virtuous and indulgent. And of course, they are best enjoyed with or dipped in tea. Arbor Teas is one of those dream sponsors that we feel lucky to work with. Not only do they take pride in the quality of their product, but they also put a huge emphasis on sustainability. They source only organic and fair-trade tea, package it in backyard-compostable packaging, and run their facility on solar power. We like to believe that companies like this are the future. Besides their earl grey, we’ve been loving the Chaga Chicory, Makaibari Estate Silver Tips, and Golden Ginger Turmeric teas. G i v e a w a y  :  Today’s giveaway is for one 4 oz Earl Grey tea and a stainless steel infuser from Arbor Teas, as well as one copy of our cookbook, Simply Vibrant. To enter, leave a comment on this post telling us about your favorite kind of tea or a tea that intrigues you from the Arbor Teas shop, until February 28th, 2019. Giveaway is U.S. only. Earl Grey Tea Sandwich Cookies, Vegan and Gluten-Free   Print Serves: about 12 complete cookies Ingredients for the Earl Grey cream heaping ¼ cup cashews - soaked in boiling water for 10 min and drained ½ tablespoon arrowroot powder ⅓ cup very strong Earl Grey tea 1 tablespoon lemon juice 2 tablespoons maple syrup 2 tablespoons coconut oil fat from one 13.5 oz can full fat coconut milk for the cookies 1/­­2 packed cup pitted dates 2 tablespoons flax/­­chia meal (aka ground flax/­­chia) 1 cup old-fashioned gf rolled oats 1/­­2 cup ground walnuts/­­almond meal + 1/­­2 cup ground oats/­­oat flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/­­2 teaspoon baking soda 1 tablespoon loose leaf Earl Grey tea - ground in a mortar and pestle (optional) pinch of sea salt - to taste 1 cup nut butter like almond, cashew, peanut, sunflower or tahini 1/­­4 cup plus 1 tablespoon melted neutral coconut oil, divided 1 cup dairy-free dark chocolate chips Instructions to make the Earl Grey cream Place the cashews, arrowroot, tea, lemon juice, maple syrup, and coconut oil in an upright blender. Blend until smooth. Place the coconut fat in a medium bowl and whisk it with a whisk to make it a little fluffier. Add the blended mixture to the bowl and whisk it in. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for about 1 hour, until the cream is hardened but scoopable. You will likely have some cream left over after making the cookies. You can freeze it and use it as cupcake/­­cake icing, serve on the side of pancakes, waffles, crepes, etc. to make the cookies Place the dates into a small, heat proof bowl and pour hot purified water over them, then leave to soak for 10 minutes. Place the flax/­­chia meal into another small bowl and add 6 tablespoons of purified water. Whisk to combine and let sit to gel for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C). Combine the oats, flour or meal, baking powder, baking soda, Earl Grey powder (if using), and salt in a large bowl, mix well. Combine the nut butter, ¼ cup of coconut oil, drained soaked dates and the gelled flax/­­chia in a bowl of a food processor fit with an S blade. Process until smooth. Add the mixture into the bowl with the oats and flours, and stir to combine. The mixture will be stiff and sticky. Prepare a baking sheet by covering it with parchment paper. Use a small ice cream scoop to scoop uniform batter portions onto the baking sheet. If you dont have an ice cream scoop, portion out about 2 tablespoons of batter for each cookie. Leave enough space between each portion for flattening. Using a lightly oiled hand, flatten each cookie into uniform circles, about ¼ in thickness. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the outside of the cookies is dry to the touch. Let the cookies cool for about 5-7 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. You will probably need to bake the cookies in 2 batches. To make the cookie sandwiches, place a generous amount of the Earl Grey cream into the center of a cookie, then use another cookie to sandwich the cream and let it spread out to the sides, pressing gently. The cookies should be facing bottom side in. Repeat with the rest of the cookies, placing them back on their baking sheet. Place in the refrigerator while you prepare the chocolate, for the Earl Grey cream to harden a little. Prepare a drying rack, lined with parchment paper underneath. Melt the chocolate chips in a small saucepan or bowl on a double boiler, together with the remaining 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Dip each cookie into the melted chocolate about half way, letting the excess chocolate drip off. Place on the drying rack. Repeat with the rest of the cookies. Transfer the rack to the refrigerator for a few minutes for the chocolate to harden. Keep the cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator or a cool room.

Healthier You Series: All-Star Nutritionist Bonnie Taub-Dix Sheds Light on Good Heart Health Practices You Can Use

January 28 2019 Meatless Monday 

Healthier You Series: All-Star Nutritionist Bonnie Taub-Dix Sheds Light on Good Heart Health Practices You Can UseStart smart eating habits on Mondays for a happier and healthier you! February is just around the corner and its American Heart Month . Take a moment on Monday to focus on behaviors that may help you live a longer and healthier life. This is the third article in this months Healthier You Series. Weve discussed making good dietary choices for kidney health and type 2 diabetes . This week, we look at heart health. The American Heart Association recommends making simple changes to your diet to improve heart health, such as limiting red meat. Meatless Monday is an easy and enjoyable way to make smart food choices for your heart . Consuming less red and processed meat and more plant-based foods like whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes can benefit cardio-health. Bonnie Taub-Dix is a nutrition consultant, author, and Meatless Monday advocate. We asked her to share some heart-friendly advice. 1. Meatless Monday encourages people to cut out meat one day a week for their health and to try a great variety of plant-based foods. Are there specific plant-based foods that are most beneficial for heart health? Plant-based protein is a hot, trendy topic but these are foods that have been around for centuries, providing fiber and an array of nutrients. Plant proteins like beans, nuts, and seeds are just a few examples of how we can cut back on meat while boosting the value of our diets. Oatmeal is a steamy bowl of goodness for breakfast swirled with almond butter and bananas or as a savory side mixed with a variety of seasonings and spices. Oats and almonds are rich in fiber to help lower cholesterol levels. Beans, the most underrated superfoods, are also rich in soluble fiber to help keep you feeling fuller longer while controlling cholesterol levels. Theyre also a great source of plant-based protein.   2. Are there particular foods to avoid? What about processed foods? Many people say they try to avoid processed food, as if its a kind of poison. Its a well-intentioned goal, but even pre-chopped fruit or vegetables are processed foods! Certain processed foods make our lives more convenient, safer-and in many ways, even more nutritious. The good news is certain processed foods are healthier than some foods found in their natural state, such as: o Plain yogurt, with added cultures, retains the protein and calcium naturally found in dairy products, and it also includes added good bacteria to help boost our gut function and immune systems. o Canned tomatoes contain more lycopene--a powerful antioxidant that reduces inflammation--than fresh tomatoes do, especially when they are eaten simultaneously with a small amount of oil to enhance absorption. Dont judge a food by the front of the package. Flip that bag or box over to read whats really inside!   3. Should people with a family history of heart disease be much more careful than those who dont have a history? What can someone with a family history do to help prevent heart disease? If you knew you could have stopped that balsamic vinegar from splattering on your favorite white sweater, would you have done something to prevent it from happening? Unless youre clairvoyant, its not very easy to prevent something you cant predict. When it comes to your body--whether its potential damage from high blood sugar, blood pressure, or cholesterol levels--this is the time to take charge of your health. You can fight against your family histories by taking a closer look at what youre putting on your plate, moving more , and finding effective ways to manage stress .   4. Whats your go-to food for heart health on Meatless Monday? Id have to say my Spicy Dark Chocolate Chili Bowl ! What I love about this recipe is that you dont really have to follow it exactly -- you can swap out for your favorite ingredients. This recipe contains beans and avocado, as well as a variety of anti-inflammatory spices. Bonnie recently published Read It Before You Eat It – Taking You from Label to Table . You can find more about Bonnie at Better Than Dieting and on Instagram. For an extra bonus, check out heart-friendly Meatless Monday recipes, from pancakes to burgers, in our free comfort food e-cookbook .

Recipe | Peppermint Double Chocolate Ganache Cakes

December 24 2018 Oh My Veggies 

And so the chocolate peppermint recipes continue! Mostly because I still have candy canes. Although I love peppermint candy, I’m not really into the whole candy cane thing. They’re a little bit unwieldy and messy to eat. So the only thing I can really do with candy canes is bake yummy holiday treats with them. My hands are tied! I have no choice in the matter! I’ve posted some relatively light holiday desserts this month, but now it’s time for something decadent. We all need to indulge a little during this time of year, right? (Note that I didn’t say over-indulge.) The good thing about these mini-cakes is that they’re portion-controlled–and believe me, with two kinds of chocolate ganache involved, portion-control is a good thing. One is enough for anyone! (Oh, and if you have leftovers, these freeze quite nicely.) I wanted to make mini-cakes instead of one big ginormous cake–I figured I could either make a sheet cake and cut smaller circles out of it or use cupcake tins. I went the cupcake tin route and turned the finished cupcakes upside down (after shaving a little cake off the top so they’d stand flat). If you want to make […]

Tofu Bhurji – Vegan Bhurji (Indian Breakfast Scramble)Tofu Bhurji – Vegan Bhurji or Akoori. Indian Scramble. Tofu scrambled with onion, tomato, cilantro and cumin for a delicious Eggless Bhurji Scramble Breakfast. 1 Pot 15 mins Vegan Glutenfree Nutfree Recipe. Can be soyfree. Jump to Recipe Morning Savory Breakfast while growing up were a few repeat options. Poha, Upma, Savory Chickpea Flour pancakes, steamed savory cakes etc.  Egg bhurji (Indian scrambled eggs), and paneer bhurji(scrambled paneer) were one of the options for days one of us kids had some active events. Bhurji means scramble mix. The key feature of my Mom’s bhurji was that there would be more of the onion, tomato and cilantro than the paneer. It must have been because one of us was picky about it. But the balance of those flavors works out so perfectly! This version with tofu is a simple scramble with a few ingredients. But when done, it becomes a vibrant, delicious, savory, satisfying meal to start the day. The bhurji is best served hot with toasted breads or in a breakfast bowl. Make this with chickpea flour tofu for soyfree. The recipe is flexible to taste, add veggies of choice, change up the spices and make this your own.Continue reading: Tofu Bhurji – Vegan Bhurji (Indian Breakfast Scramble)The post Tofu Bhurji – Vegan Bhurji (Indian Breakfast Scramble) appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Orange Chai Latte + Video

December 19 2018 Golubka Kitchen 

Orange Chai Latte + Video This has been our favorite, warming drink this fall/­­winter. Chai is surprisingly easy to make at home, and fills your whole space with the most lovely, festive scent. It tastes like pure coziness, and is also full of spices that are great for digestion and blood sugar stabilization. Today, we are sharing our favorite way to make chai (and a chai latte), which involves lightly toasting the spices, adding some orange peels, and not including any caffeine (though you easily can). We also have a new ‘day of eating’ video for you, which shows you the whole step-by-step process of making this chai :) We both have issues with handling caffeine, so we generally completely avoid it, except for a rare matcha latte treat, a cappuccino in Italy, etc. Turns out that it’s totally possible to make really good chai by just steeping some spices in water, without adding any tea. We toast the spices for a deeper flavor and also add orange peel, which contributes a beautiful, zesty note. Serving this chai as a latte really takes it to the next level. The addition of creamy plant milk and a little bit of sweetener brings out all the beautiful flavors in the best way possible. It’s like a soft, warm blanket in drink form. Hope you give it a try! Orange Chai Latte   Print Serves: about 6 cups chai Ingredients for the orange chai 1 tablespoon cloves 1 tablespoon fennel seeds 1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns 2 tablespoons whole cardamom pods 2 cinnamon sticks about 10 star anise 2-3 piece ginger - peeled if not organic and sliced peels from 1 organic orange - white parts trimmed off as much as possible 1 piece fresh turmeric - peeled if not organic and sliced (optional) 6 cups purified water for the orange chai latte a mugs worth of orange chai from above - hot 1 pitted date or a splash of maple syrup/­­honey to taste generous pour of any plant milk of choice or a handful of raw cashews Instructions to make the orange chai In a dry skillet warmed over medium-high heat, toast the cloves, fennel, black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, and star anise until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat. In a medium pot, combine the toasted spices, ginger, orange peel, turmeric (if using), and purified water. Bring up to a boil, then turn the heat down and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Strain to serve. The spices, ginger, orange peel, and turmeric can be re-steeped up to 2 times. Keep refrigerated. to make the orange chai latte In a high-speed blender, combine the chai, date or maple syrup/­­honey, and plant milk or cashews. Blend until smooth and frothy and enjoy. Notes If youd like to add some tea to the chai, just steep it in with the rest of the spices, however long and strong you prefer. 3.5.3226 You might also like...
