No. 2 : Kitchen Scoop
Ginger is one of my favorite ways to add zip to any recipe. It has spicy, not hot flavors that enhance the taste of many fruits and veggies. But not only unique for that reason, its also a nutrition super-star. Ginger has potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols. When I get a tummy problem, its my good-to natural cure.
No. 3 : Clever Idea
Leave out the garnish of toasted nuts and this slaw makes a delicious topper for a veggie, chicken or turkey burger. OR, stuff it into a pita pocket along with a few slices of avocado and you have a yummy lunch-to-go.
