Global Cuisine Inspired Recipes
Different cultures bring wonderful local ingredients, flavor profiles, techniques, and inspiration to the table. Here are a few of our favorite dishes that incorporate different elements from cuisines around the globe.
Tofu is porous with a sponge like texture, allowing it to take on flavor profiles of ingredients -- making it perfect for stir fry. This stir fry recipe has tons of aromatics, such as garlic, ginger, onion, scallions, sesame oil and chili paste. These elements paired with crisp vegetables, and chickpea spaghetti result in a dish that is tangy, sweet, savory, and spicy.
The elements of this pasta salad feature ingredients inspired by Greek cuisine. This recipe uses Kalamata olives and feta cheese which both have distinct tangy flavors, and pair well together. The olives and cheese are then tossed with seared tender chicken breast, cold crunchy cucumber, tomatoes, and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Al dente Gemelli pasta ties everything together for a quick, easy and delicious meal.
Many cultures have different variations of chicken soups. This chicken soup recipe is one of our favorites, and is inspired by ingredients in Mexican cuisine. Using the whole chicken (bones included) enhances the flavor of the broth, and creates a rich base for the soup. Roasting the peppers and corn until they are smoky and blistered deepens their flavor. The peppers provide a nice hint of heat making this a cold weather staple you don't want to miss.
