Ginger is an excellent addition to any vegan kitchen and has many holistic healing properties, as well. It is often looked over in the supermarket and people know it most often from the pink, chinese restaurant or canned version. This version unfortunately unless pickled by hand, is often full of chemicals.
However, real, fresh ginger is not pink. It is actually yellow in color and is a root. It’s used as a spice, herbal remedy or as a delicacy.
In the kitchen it can be used to flavor anything. The taste is a spicy, warm feeling and it is used often in Indian and Asian cooking.
In western cooking it is found as candied ginger or in ginger cookies.
