SPICE OF THE MONTH - Moroccan Vegetable Rub

When you are looking for something a bit different for your vegetables our Nashville Spice Company Moroccan inspired Vegetable Rub is the perfect treat. Our Nashville Spice Company Moroccan Vegetable Rub has the sharpness of paprika, a dash of heat from the chili powder and cayenne and then some delicate sweetness from the cinnamon, allspice and cloves. Ingredients: Cumin, coriander, chili powder, smoked sweet paprika, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cayenne and cloves


This vegetable seasoning will quickly become a hit with friends and family, providing an exotic flare to corn on the cob, cauliflower and broccoli to name a few. Try the rub with roasted root vegetables and tubers such as carrots, celery roots, onions, parsnips, potatoes, sweet potatoes and turnips. Try it on your oven baked fries!


How to use - lightly coat your vegetables with olive oil, sprinkle and rub the Nashville Spice Company Moroccan Vegetable Rub into the vegetables. We suggest using about 1 tablespoon of rub per pound of raw vegetables. For maximum flavor, let the vegetables sit in the refrigerator for several hours before cooking.


Like to grill? Put the seasoned vegetables in aluminum foil, wrap them up and cook them on the grill. Ingredients: Cumin, coriander, chili powder, smoked sweet paprika, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cayenne and cloves.


RECIPE OF THE MONTH - African Vegetable Stew

This African Vegetable Stew comes to you courtesy of ingredients merging from all over the world to be incorporated into one tasty and deliciously spiced dish. Chickpeas, also known as Garbanzo beans, are an ingredient used all over the African continent, as beans are a relatively easy to grow and sustainable protein source that is neutral in tasting and versatile enough for a variety of dishes.


The other vegetables in this dish are a congregation of vegetables that have found their way into African kitchens from various regions - Parsnips are a vegetable that are sometimes associated with Morocco, where our Nashville Spice Company Moroccan Vegetable Rub takes inspiration from, zucchini (summer squash) and tomatoes are grown in South Africa as a part of their colorful diet.


Like North America, only a small number of vegetables now eaten by Africans today actually originate from the continent- though some crops were introduced by friendly trading, it is far more likely that most of the diversity culinarily experienced is a result of centuries of repeated colonization by European settlers who introduced (or forced) their preferences to different areas.

FEATURED PRODUCT - Chef Edward Lee's Sambal Hot Sauce

Chef Edward Lee and Bourbon Barrel Foods have teamed up to create this original Sambal Hot Sauce. This sauce, inspired by the Sambals of Southeast Asia, starts with a fermented chili paste layered with flavors that pull from the umami elements of Asia to the sweet and smoky notes from the American South. It is the best of both worlds. Put it on anything where you want a spicy, savory, umami kick.


Chef Edward Lee was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York to Korean parents. Edward Lee began cooking at the age of eleven and credits his grandmother with first sparking his interest in food. Edward Lee’s approach to cooking frequently blends the flavors of his Korean heritage, culinary traditions, and ingredients of the southern United States including sorghum, ham, and bourbon.


Lee now resides in Louisville, Kentucky. He is the executive chef and owner of 610 Magnolia, MilkWood, and Whiskey Dry in Louisville, Kentucky and culinary director for Succotash in Washington, D.C., Maryland. His accolades include being a finalist multiple times for the James Beard Foundation Awards for Best Chef, Southeast. He is the author of the best-selling cookbook Smoke & Pickles. He appears regularly on television, most recently as the Emmy-nominated host for Season 3 of Mind of a Chef. Lee has also created a line of bourbon with Jefferson’s Reserve that has generated praise from the nation’s top publications.
