5 vegetarian recipes that use fresh ginger! Fresh ginger is delicious and can transform just about anything (even water) into a gingery masterpiece.
The day I discovered fresh ginger was quite possibly the most pivotal day in my college life. Admittedly, I wasn’t the best cook back in college, and B.G. (before ginger), my cooking was sad and flavorless.
Ginger opened up a whole new world to stir fries (every college student’s dream food) and flavor, and this week I’m sharing that love for ginger-y flavor with you! To get us going, here are 5 vegetarian ways to use fresh ginger.
1. As base for Asian-style stir fries and curries
2. To cut bitterness
Pungent fresh ginger is great for cutting strong bitter tastes, like grapefruit. Give these Grapefruit Smoothie Bowls a go to see what I mean.
3. Paired with ginger
Carrot + Ginger: These two are quite the pair (especially in the form of this bone-warming soup!)
4. To flavor kombucha
Are you into kombucha? I am too! Add a few slices of fresh ginger and a dash of honey in the final fermentation makes for some damn good ‘buch. Lemon Ginger Kombucha and Ginger Pepper Kombucha are two of my favorites!
5. To make tea
Not into kombucha but still like tea? Throw some sliced ginger and honey in hot water for an easy tea (you don’t even need to peel the ginger!)
