Spicing it up

They’re finally here!! After months of hard work, I’ve finally launched my new line of spices: Alejandra’s Seasoning Blends. A collection of six blends with global flavors, they are made in small batches right in the heart of Los Angeles. I carefully crafted each of them to reflect my favorite flavor profiles and used only the best ingredients–all certified organic and non GMO. Please visit my beautiful e-store and website to learn more about them! Alejandra's Seasoning Blends One of the early favorites has been Gingerlove Curry. Hints of ginger complement the delicious flavors of turmeric and cumin. It’s mild enough to use directly on a curry chicken salad and blends wonderfully with coconut milk to prepare a delicious curry. So exotic and smooth. I call it “The Ladies Man”. I’d love to share an easy recipe for you to try at home. Chicken Larb gets a doses of sazón with my Gingerlove Curry seasoning blend. Very easy to make, it goes great on lettuce cups which also makes it low-carb, paleo friendly, gluten-free, and well, just yummy!
