5 vegetarian recipes that use fresh ginger! Fresh ginger is delicious and can transform just about anything (even water) into a gingery masterpiece.

5 Vegetarian Ways to Use Fresh Ginger

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

Ginger in combination with garlic makes a killer base for Asian-style dishes. Try out these Carrot Noodles, Weeknight Curry, or Rainbow Poke Bowl.

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!)
