Sauces & Spices

I don’t call my blog Ginger with Spice without loving the spice! It can elevate any boring dish to be anything but. Many of my favorites are Middle Eastern za’atar, baharat and shawarma.

 

But spices are great everywhere; Indian style garam masala/curry and Italian seasoning. Sauces are also a big flavor enhancer, such as orange honey mustard dressing and pineapple salsa. Sometimes, the sauce is the reason I eat it!
