Indonesian Rendang

Indonesian Rendang is one of the most delicious meals of the world as voted by CNN readers and everybody who tasted it once. It’s typically made with beef cooked in coconut milk for many hours until the meat is tender and absorbed the flavors of the exotic spices. For a faster version, use chicken or the recipe variations on our website.

Chinese Sichuan Beef

Sichuan Beef

Sichuan, also known as Szechuan, is a province in China. It’s the origin of Panda bears and Sichuan pepper. This spice is very common in Asian cuisine. It is not related to pepper and has a very special taste with a citrus note. Notably, Sichuan pepper creates a numbing sensation in your mouth. Try it sprinkled over your dish or use the remainder in a dish with beans or mushrooms.

 

Chinese Mǎyǐshàngshù

You will never forget the name of this dish from the Chinese region Sichuan. In its classic version, thin glass noodles, also called bean threads, soak up a sauce made with ground meat. The result looks like ants are climbing on tree twigs. That’s why ‘Mǎyǐ shàng shù’ translates to ‘Ants on a tree’. We used easier to find thin spaghetti and optional healthy vegetables. Our spice blend with Shitake powder is full of umami.

Mǎyǐshàngshù

Taiwanese Ló͘-bah-pn̄g

Ló͘-bah-pn̄g

Classic Middle Eastern Fattoush is a fresh salad seasoned with ground tart sumac berry and topped with crunchy pita chips. Serve it with fried chicken or use the Lebanese Baharat blend for oven baked vegetables.  Alternatively, find online the recipe for another Lebanese classic: Shawarma

Vindaloo

Goan Vindaloo

Vindaloo is a worldwide popular dish from Goa, India. Its origin is the Portuguese dish “carne de vinho e alhos” (meat cooked in wine vinegar and garlic). The sour-spicy dish came to Goa with Portuguese explorers in the 15th century and was adapted to the local taste and ingredients. Vindaloo is usually very hot. Our spice blend has only a little kick, not hot at all. Add fresh chilies to your heat level. 

Egyptian Falafel

Falafel can make a great substitute for a burger, once in a while or weekly. Consider our variations as a start for your own creativity. You can change the type of beans and herbs, add vegetables to the beans, serve them with any type of bread, sauce, and salad.
