Cooking Essentials Herb Combo
All the fresh herbs you need to have on hand for your Asian cooking needs. This Cooking Essentials Herb combination includes:
- 1 bunch Organic Green Onion (Scallion)
- 5 ct Garlic
- 0.5 lb Fresh Ginger
- 0.5 lb Red Thai Chili
- 1 bunch Organic Cilantro
Organic Green Onions are typically used chopped and raw as the ideal garnish to any savory dish. When cooking, we like to incorporate the white parts to the dish while it's still cooking, and then add the green parts as garnish.
Garlic is a staple addition to a variety of Asian dishes. Either whole cloves for stews and casseroles, or minced for stir-fries, they are used to add an extra layer of umami to savory dishes.
Ginger root is a small root with a spicy flavor, and is used peeled. Ginger has a distinguishable aroma and is often used as a spice for both sweet and savory dishes. It can also be used to make infusions such as ginger tea.
Red Thai Chili, also known as bird's eye chili, is a chili pepper found frequently in Southeast Asia cuisine. Best to use sparingly! Its intense flavor adds a very spicy kick to any dish.
Organic Cilantro leaves have a flavor that resembles parsley with citrus overtones. This fresh herb has a distinguishable aroma and flavor, and it can be used both as a garnish and and main ingredient for your favorite Asian dishes.
