The Cooking with Spices video class is a 101 of how to use common spices to liven up your cooking. Spices are an easy way to change up the flavors of your foods and are worth getting to know. Ann will be using both whole and ground spices to make a simple a curry from leftovers, a couple of yummy vegetarian soups, and to jazz up plain some Roasted Cauliflower, a technique that’s easy to use on chicken breasts for the grill too. It’s wrong to think all spices are ‘hot’. Cooking with the ‘sweet’ spices we’re using here can be a terrific way to combat the taste changes that frequently occur during cancer treatment. And if a ‘kick’ of heat is required, Ann will show you how to add it. Look and learn!

Quick and Easy Leftover Chicken Curry

This is great way to use up either leftover roast chicken or Holiday turkey leftovers. It is great made with grilled tempeh too. It’s heavy on the veggies so is a perfect dish to get you to your 5-a-day. You can use almost any combo of veggies, but we love it with cabbage for the anti-cancer cruciferous crunch it adds to this quick and tasty dish. Try it.

Spiced Beet and Tomato Soup

This soup is a gateway dish to the Indian way of using herbs and particularly spices, and a very different way to think about using beets and canned tomatoes. With these two veggies taking center stage, the soup is a gorgeous rich red, a kind of borscht with South Asian flavors packed with phytonutrients, vitamins, antioxidant lycopene, and of course, wonderful flavor. It is a truly pleasurable way to eat your colors.

Tortilla Soup

This easy delicious soup will show you the spices to use, and how to add them to give true Mex-Tex flavor to this vegetarian version of the classic soup. You’ll also learn how to make your own tortilla chips! It’s so easy! Enjoy!

Spiced Oven Roasted Cauliflower

Watch Ann give roasted cauliflower a spicy lift with some turmeric and cumin. These two spices not only boost the cauliflower’s flavor, they will give this cruciferous veg an extra antioxidant boost to its already high anticancer profile! Yummy and good for you!
