Fall is rapidly approaching and with the drop in temperature comes the yearning for warm and comforting flavours. In other words, it’s time to spice up your life! Thus, chai-spiced everything (or pumpkin-spice) is available this time of the year! But let’s take a step back and deconstruct those trendy (and expensive) products shall we? A balanced blend of bold and spicy flavours makes for the perfect chai powder in my opinion: cardamom, allspice, clove, cinnamon, ginger and black pepper.
With the multiple health benefit of spices, why not make your food more toothsome and serviceable to your physiology? I put this mix on or in just about anything: think oats, chickpeas, lattes, curries, waffles, jam; the options are limitless! Let me know how you like to use your chai powder!
- 1 tsp. cardamom, ground
- 1. tsp. allspice, ground
- 1 tsp. clove, ground
- 2 tsp. cinnamon, ground
- 3 tsp. ginger, ground
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
- Mix all ingredients together.
*The spice blend will taste best if it’s made of freshly ground components and stored in an airtight container, in a dark environment.
