Here’s a closer look at our May spices…….

Vaca Frita

This popular Cuban dish is fresh and juicy. It’s very easy to cook. Though it takes some patience. The key to Vaca Frita or “fried beef” is slow cooked beef the Cuban way. Quick frying is the second and last step in the preparation.

Our Spice Kit Ingredients Include:

  1. cumin, orange peel, oregano
  2. chipotle pepper, ancho pepper

Variations: You can also make this dish with chicken breast and the product card also tells us that we can find recipe substitutes on the website for Black Beans Recipe or Fried Plantain Recipe.

Shichimi Shrimps

Shichimi Togarashi is as popular in Japan as salt & pepper for us. It’s often mixed with seaweed and salt and can be very hot. Start with the medium-hot pouch (1) to mix your very own Shichimi Togarashi spice blend with Asian Sichuan pepper and more heat to taste.

Our Spice Kit Ingredients Include:

  1. orange peel, white and black sesame seeds, chill pepper, poppy seeds, paprika, ginger
  2. sichuan pepper
  3. cayenne pepper

Variation: The recipe card tells me that I can substitute the shrimp for fish, chicken, tofu or tempeh. I absolutely LOVE tempeh so that’s what I will probably go with. They also tell us that we can substitute the rice for quinoa. Now I am even more excited to give this recipe a try!


The Georgian cuisine developed unique spice blends influenced by their East European and Middle Eastern neighbours. Every family has their own recipe for the traditional Khmeli-Suneli blend. Walnuts play a prominent role in their daily meals. Enjoy this rich eggplant-walnut dish.

Our Spice Kit Ingredients Include:

  1. coriander, fenugreek, marigold, hyssop, paprika, mint, black pepper, turmeric, savoury, methi, basil, cinnamon, and cloves

Variations: The recipe card tells us that we can top this veggie dish with ham. We can also find other recipe options on the website for Badrijani Rolls.


Mexican cowboys in Texas made the first Fajitas from skirt steak, probably without any seasoning other than the smoke from the grill. A German chef in Texas brought sirloin beef Fajitas on his menu where it became widely popular. Today, most Fajitas seasonings include artificial flavours. Dig into the deep flavour of Fajitas made with our pure and fresh spices.

Our Spice Kit Ingredients Include:

  1. smoked paprika, cumin, white pepper, oregano
  2. jalapeno pepper

Variations: The recipe card tells us that we can substitute the steak for chicken breast, shrimps, pork, zucchini or eggplant. I think you could also substitute cauliflower, tofu or tempeh.

SpiceBreeze Review May 2018 – Final Thoughts

The May SpiceBreeze collection has provided me with 4 really great recipes and quality spice blends to go with them. I’m most excited for the Fajitas…..I love Fajitas. In addition to that we received a veggie dish, a shrimp dish and a beef dish. All the recipes provided come with substitute suggestions, which is great because I like to have options. SpiceBreeze is an inexpensive way to spice up your weekly dinner menu. You could also use it as a weekly date night, get your significant other involve in the process and make a night out of it. Sounds like a good idea to me!
