Pizza Party!

Pizza with Aleppo & Urfa Chili Flakes by SeasonWithSpice.com

Pizza toppings are endless, but when it comes to seasonings, you’re usually limited to oregano, parmesan, and chili flakes.  Red chili flakes.  

Red chili flakes add some heat and a bit of flavor, but too much familiarity on your taste buds.  

At your next pizza party – birthdays, BBQs, and for the upcoming football season – surprise your guests with a few different chili flakes to try like Chipotle Chili Flakes, Urfa Chili Flakes, and Aleppo Chili Flakes.

Spicy, smoky, and intensely appetizing, our Chipotle Chili Flakes have become the standard pizza seasoning in our house. The aroma alone will make your stomach growl.

It’s perfect for transforming a simple pizza like cheese, margherita, or a cherry tomato & basil. And the strong flavor pairs well with extra meaty pizzas, especially BBQ chicken pizzas.

Red Cabbage Salad with Spicy Miso Dressing

Red Cabbage Salad with Spicy Miso Dressing recipe by SeasonWithSpice.com

If you’re following along, and cooking up some of the recipes I’ve been featuring, the next essential ingredient to add to your Asian pantry is the rich, salty, Japanese seasoning paste – Miso

The explosion in popularity of miso has not only led to a wide variety of miso flavors, but also in how it is used.  Once a staple in making Japanese soups, miso has now become a favorite in giving a punch to fusion dishes, where it’s added into everything from marinades to sauces to salad dressings. 

For a taste of its versatility and savory, distinctive flavor, choose a yellow or white miso from the grocery store, and whip up this Red Cabbage Salad with Spicy Miso Dressing.

In this Red Cabbage Salad with Spicy Miso Dressing, I combined a yellow miso with Greek yogurt, rice vinegar, mirin, honey, toasted sesame oil, and our Spicy Korean Chili Seasoning. The creamy dressing is then tossed together with a bed of red cabbage, julienned carrot, red onion slices, shredded chicken, fresh scallion and mint leaves.

It makes a lively fusion salad that is bursting with colors and flavors.

Thai Green Curry Chicken Stir-Fry with Cashews

Thai Green Curry Chicken Stir-Fry with Cashews by SeasonWithSpice.com

Thai Green Curry Chicken Stir-Fry with Cashews is a mouthful.  It’s a curry, and a stir-fry.  That doesn’t mean it’s twice as much work.  But it does mean it’s twice as delicious. 

The dish has the flavor and appearance of a dry curry, but is cooked as a stir-fry.  It’s perfect to make with a spoonful of our Thai Green Curry Powder and a little leftover coconut milk.

Thai Corn Salad

With the second half of summer almost here (I know, where did the summer go?!), fresh sweet corn will be popping up at every farmer’s market stall.  The really fresh sweet corn can be sliced off the cob and added straight into a salad.  The kernels are so crispy and juicy that cooking them just seems like a waste of precious summer time.

When sweet corn season begins, try tossing the raw kernels with diced cucumber & red onion, along with fresh herbs like Thai basil, cilantro, and mint. Then season with a mild flavored oil, lime juice, and sprinkles of our Thai Sriracha Sea Salt.

The combination makes a refreshing Thai Corn Salad to go with your grilled meat dishes.

Vietnamese BBQ Shrimp Noodle Bowl by The Adventures of MJ & Hungryman

Vietnamese BBQ Shrimp Noodle Bowl by The Adventures of MJ & Hungryman

The incongruous match of a Registered Dietitian to be and a hungryman intrigued us when we first stumbled upon their blog last year.  And when we delved further into Min & Tim’s stories on their site – The Adventures of MJ & Hungryman – we learned that a heart condition doesn’t limit love, it strengthens it.

Min & Tim

The role that cooking & health play in their lives together always has us returning to follow their story, because we relate closely to where their journey began, and the adventures they continue to share from their home in Austin, Texas.

When we first contacted Min & Tim to introduce ourselves and Season with Spice, we already knew from their blog that they also felt a strong connection between healthy eating and spices.  But when they replied, clearly stating “less salt, more spice”, we knew immediately we found two new friends.

We couldn’t imagine a better way to describe the connection of healthy eating and spices than the thousand delicious words that came to mind after seeing this Vietnamese BBQ Shrimp Noodle Bowl that Min cooked up using our Vietnamese Spicy BBQ Seasoning

Min may not be a full-fledged Registered Dietician just yet, but if her career goal is to convince the rest of us to become a hungryman for healthy dishes, mission accomplished.
