Our first glimpse at the August SpiceBreeze Box
what's in the spicebreeze box
Everything that we received in our Quad SpiceBreeze Kit. A yummy grouping with four recipes (each has 2 spice packets!) 

So what is all this stuff?

Our welcome insert
The reverse explains how the SpiceBreeze newsletter contains information in addition to what’s included in the packet
Spice Kit
The spices all come attached to an informational card that highlights some facts about some of the spices included. We have to say that this looks beautiful and we love spices!
Our first recipe is Ratatouille and represents French cuisine. This vegetarian dish is warm and hearty and full of yummy herbs!
The recipe and ingredients is laid out inside the card in easy to follow instructions.
Our first spice packet is the seasoning and contains; thyme, rosemary, savory, oregano, sage and marjoram.
And the second packet with Hyssop is simply to be added to your taste! 
Kabob Koobideh

This spice kit features Persian Spices. 
These kabobs are the most popular grilled meat in Iran and around the Persian Gulf and sound delicious because they include one of our favorite spices – Sumac!
Our first packet contains Sumac – a deep red color that is often used as an everyday table condiment
Our second packet contains turmeric. We only need small amounts of both for our recipe so we’ll have plenty of sumac left over for our favorite Fattoush dressing!
Our Sosaties recipes is a South African recipe and features marinated skewers (many of our dishes this month have skewered foods)
We love that this recipe has a vegetarian alternative featured on the card
Our first spice packet contains orange peel, bay leaf, ginger, yellow mustard, coriander, curry leaf, turmeric, fenugreek, onion, cayenne, cumin, garlic, cilantro, cardamom, black pepper and cinnamon! Whew!
And our second packet features just Birds Eye Chili (to be added to your taste)
Tandoori Chicken

Our final recipe features Indian Spices and is also a skewered meat dish. 
We decided we would make this recipe based on what we had on hand (we had some plain yogurt which is a key ingredient). Additionally, this recipe has a vegetarian option
Our first spice packet contains; paprika, ajowan, Kashmiri Chili, cardamom, cinnamon, turmeric, cloves, cumin, white pepper, coriander and will all be added to our yogurt
Our second packet contains Cayenne pepper and is added to taste.

Okay so now what?!

Now we cook!
First we combine our yogurt, ginger and garlic and also our first spice packet. This will be our marinade. You can also add the second packet to taste (we opted not to).
It’s so aromatic and yummy smelling!
Next we add our raw chicken and marinate anywhere from 2-24 hours
Next, we make mint chutney (we actually have been growing mint so we had it FRESH). 2/3 c of mint and 2/3 c of cilantro mixed with lemon juice, garlic and ginger and add water as necessary in your food processor until thick paste forms. 
Finally, we pop the chicken in the oven  – we opted to not use skewers or the hot packet because of the kids. We started our rice at the same time. 
And PLATED! Our finished product was delicious and enjoyed by the whole family!

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The SpiceBreeze Subscription has wonderful spice blends and thoughtfully curated recipes that are great for the novice or expert in the kitchen. The presentation is beautiful and everything arrives perfectly. The quality is amazing – we love the variety of high quality spices and seasonings. And the curation is superb. We love how the recipes carefully lay out the necessary ingredients and include the harder to find spices. We love cooking with new flavors and if you do too you’ll love Spice Breeze.
