SpiceBreeze Review November 2019
SpiceBreeze is a monthly culinary subscription box that delivers pre-portioned spice kits accompanied by simple recipe cards to help you create delicious meals with the spices. Each month’s recipes feature authentic popular dishes from around the world.
This box was kindly sent to us for review.
You can choose from 3 SpiceBreeze plans when signing up, the Cosmopolitan Kit that features 4 dishes from 2-4 countries, the Wanderlust Kit that features 2 dishes from 2 countries, or the newly introduced Globetrotter Kit that features double sizes of 2 dishes from 2 countries. Prices for the monthly subscription range from $6.80 for the Wanderlust kit to $13.99 for the Cosmopolitan kit.
We received the Cosmopolitan kit.
Each month there is a featured city or country, accompanied by a card with a brief description of the featured place. This month it was Chefchaouen, Morocco.
The spices are neatly packed in pouches stuck inside a folded card. I like how everything is clearly labeled and organized.
Holiday Feast – European Culinary Spice Kit
Just in time for the holidays, the first recipe we received was a traditional holiday feast from Northern Europe. This is prepared with roasted chicken or turkey with potato dumplings and spiced red cabbage. The key ingredient of this recipe is mugwort, which is beneficial for digestion.
This kit includes mugwort, juniper berries, cloves, and bay leaf.
B’Stilla – Moroccan Culinary Spice Kit
The next recipe is B’stilla, a dish from Morocco that is a savory-sweet pie with saffron in a crisp phyllo-style wrapping usually served during festive occasions. The kit contains ginger, black pepper, cinnamon, turmeric, and saffron.
Samlar Machu – Cambodian Culinary Spice Kit
Next is Samlar Machu, a Cambodian soup dish with lime and tamarind. This kit contains lemongrass, tamarind, galangal, turmeric, chili, and makrut lime. I am so excited for this one, soup dishes like this are perfect for the cold weather.
Oriental Pumpkin Pie Spice
This kit includes cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and cinnamon and the accompanying recipe card features several recipes that it could be used in such as pumpkin spice latte and Mexican hot chocolate.
Everything Healthy Mix
Finally, we have a packet containing a mix of hemp hearts, nigella seeds, chai seeds, ground flax seeds, nutritional yeast, granulated onions, and Alaea sea salt. Serving suggestions for this mix include sprinkling it on avocado toast, salad, popcorn, roasted veggies, soups etc.
SpiceBreeze Review November 2019 – Final Thoughts
This is my first month receiving SpiceBreeze, and I definitely enjoy it! Culinary kits like this are a fun way to try new dishes from around the world and get me out of a rut of cooking the same dishes all the time. The recipes provided were all really simple and straightforward to follow. I appreciated that some recipes provided a plant-based option.
