Thai spice blends often combine multiple exotic ingredients such as lemongrass, galangal, and kaffir lime leaves. We combined dried lemongrass (easy-to-find dried lemon peel works, too) with common spices such as ginger (a cousin of galangal) to achieve that distinct Thai flavor.

Try adding it to a vegetable stir-fry and top with fresh cilantro; sprinkle it over a salad of chopped green papaya and bean sprouts; use it to season steamed vegetables and jasmine rice; or make a quick peanut sauce by mixing with peanut butter, tamari, vinegar, and water.

Thai Spice Blend

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground white or black pepper

Instructions

  1. In a blender or spice grinder combine all ingredients. Blend to a fine powder. Transfer to an airtight container and store in a cool, dry place up to 6 months.

Hi this seasoning sounds wonderful, would you call it a Southeast Asian Spice blend I have been trying so hard to replicate the Hello Fresh (SEA spice blend).

So you put in a total of 4 tsp. dried lemon zest if you don’t have lemongrass?

Yes, I’ve seen it at the store! I imagine it’s cheap and easy to make your own though. Bet there’s a video out there on that….

I just tried this and it was delicious! Instead of using plant milk, I put in a couple scoops of plain/original hummus. (About 1/4 cup). It lightened up the color of the soup and tasted sooooooooo good! Highly recommend!

I would have never thought of using hummus in soup. I have some hummus I made earlier in the week & didn’t know what to do with it other than freezing it. What a great idea! I’ll be using it tonight for dinner, thank you!
