A Broccoli Sauté. Sauté garlic and ginger in olive oil until lightly brown, then add broccoli, slivered almonds, and sesame seeds. Sauté until broccoli is tender … and enjoy!
Ginger Tea. Cut up a hunk of fresh ginger (no need to peel) and pour boiling water over it. Add a little honey and a little lemon to make the perfect cool-weather tonic!
Pickled Perfection. Pickled ginger (also known as gari), is primarily eaten with sushi. However, you can also add it to salads and sandwiches for a fresh taste.
Asian Cuisine. This bumpy root is often used in Chinese and Japanese dishes. Ginger has a sweet peppery flavor that complements the flavors of many Asian dishes. Try it in our Asian Cabbage Scramble, Sesame Chicken, and our Asian Apple-Chicken Salad recipes.
Fabulous Fish. We really like spicy ginger with tender, flaky fish. Try adding grated ginger with a combination of whole wheat bread crumbs, garlic, and cilantro (if desired) over tilapia or another white fish. Bake in the oven on 400° F until fish is flaky.
Accent Accordingly. Ginger accents sweet potatoes and apples perfectly. Try this taste sensation in our Gingered Sweet Potato-Apple Salad.
Glazed. Ginger is sweeter glazed, making it a fabulous flavor addition in our Carrots w/Garlic-Orange Glaze recipe.
Soup. Fresh ginger (grated or puréed) brings a wonderful zest to hot, creamy soups. Ginger is a fantastic ingredient to add to any soup, including soups that feature fall fruits and vegetables. Recipe: Pumpkin & Bean Soup
A Staple for Stir Fry. Almost every stir fry could use a little grated or even minced ginger to spice things up. Recipe: Bok Choy Stir Fry
Homemade Ginger Ale. Boil ginger down to a syrup, mix with seltzer water or diet club soda, and a squirt of lime juice. For each 16-ounce serving, mix 1/4 cup ginger syrup with 1 cup cold seltzer water and pour over ice. Add ginger syrup or sugar substitute for desired taste.
