One of the things that people love most about cruising is the fact that they get to enjoy some delicious foods that are hard to match when they are at home.
Here are some ideas to whet your appetite and bring on that cruise feeling:
Turmeric is a golden wonder spice touted to treat everything from arthritis to blocked sinuses. But it also tastes great too if you know what to do with it. One of the most popular recipes doing the rounds at the moment is the tahini-turmeric dressing. The ideal is pretty simple: you get the fat from the tahani, the flavor from the turmeric, and the acid from a vinegar of your choice. Just blend the ingredients with a little salt and voila – you have something that tastes special.
Avocado And Cilantro Dip
Yes, avocado and cilantro might also go by the name of guacamole, but some recipes are better than others. If you want to take your standard guac up a notch, try adding some greek yogurt along with the mashed avocado, diced red onions, cilantro, salt and lime juice. It adds a creaminess and dip-ability that you simply don’t get otherwise.
Truffle flavored olive oil is great for all sorts of things, but particularly drizzling over salads and antipasti. The delicate flavor transforms the taste of the dish, turning it into something truly special.
Have you ever noticed just how great Chick-Fil-A sauce tastes? Well, instead of going there and ordering a bunch of fast food, you can actually make it yourself.
How do you do it? It’s surprisingly simple actually. Grab some mayo, mustard, lemon, honey, BBQ sauce and dijon and mix it all together. That’s it!
Sweet And Spicy Miso
Miso has an almost alcoholic flavor when you try it directly from the jar. That’s because it’s actually fermented rice and soybeans, mixed with a little salt.
Miso tastes umami and works well with all sorts of flavors and dishes. What’s more, if you know what you’re doing, you can turn it into a delectable dipping sauce that goes with fries, salads, and meats of your choice.
Mustard BBQ Sauce
In the Carolinas, they like to make a unique mustard-BBQ sauce that tastes different from pretty much any other BBQ sauce you’ll find in the states. As you might expect, you need to combine mustard with BBQ, but it actually goes way beyond that. What’s more, you don’t necessarily have to restrict yourself to just dipping food in it. It also works as a marinade for fresh meat and vegetables for the grill.
Blueberry And Cranberry Sauce
In the past, kings and queens would eat their meat with fruit sauces. It’s a combination that goes back centuries.
Blueberry and cranberry sauce is a simple variation on a classic theme. What’s more, when you add blueberries to the cranberries, you can actually reduce the amount of added sugar the recipe requires.
