Our Hello Fresh favorite with ginger
Every week I have come across a delicious ginger dish in the Hello Fresh box. This one is really my favorite and very easy to make!
Surinamese nasi with Chinese cabbage, fried egg and sweet and sour cucumber
Healthy nasi with gingerFor 2 persons (plus toddler): 170 gram Surinamese rice, ½ cucumber, 2 cloves garlic, 2 1/2 cm ginger, 3/4 Chinese cabbage, 3 or 4 spring onions, 6 – 8 sprigs of coriander, peanuts, 2 – 3 eggs, 1 tsp steviasugar, 3 tbsp white balsamic vinegar, 3 tbsp olive oil/sunflower oil, 3 tbsp sauce, pepper and salt. Optional: ½ red pepper.
Cook the rice for 12 minutes, drain and steam.
Grind the cucumber into thin slices. In a bowl, mix the steviasugar with 1 tbsp boiled water, add the balsamic vinegar and possibly a small part of the red pepper. Add salt and pepper to taste. Leave to cool in the fridge.
Peel the garlic and squeeze or chop finely. Peel the ginger and chop finely. Cut the Chinese cabbage as finely as possible. Wash the spring onion and cut finely. Coarsely chop the coriander.
Heat the olive oil or sunflower oil (a large amount) in a frying pan or wok. Throw the garlic and ginger in the oil, be careful not to let it burn. Add the Chinese cabbage shortly afterwards. Spoon well for 4 – 6 minutes on medium heat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Then add the Surinamese rice, ¾ of the coriander, possibly the rest of the pepper and 2 tablespoons soy sauce. Bake for another 5 minutes on medium heat and stir-fry regularly. Add the sliced spring onion for the last minute.
Fry the eggs on both sides and sprinkle them with 1 tablespoon soy sauce when turning them over. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve the egg with the nasi with the fresh cucumber salad and garnish the dish with peanuts and coriander. Enjoy your meal!

And so I use ginger also ginger smoothie recipe
Like tea. Cut some slices of fresh ginger (approx. 2 cm). Grab some fresh mint leaves. Throw both in a teapot. Fill the whole teapot with boiled water and let it steep for 5 – 10 minutes. Real, healthy and above all delicious ginger-mint tea!
In my smoothie. For example a mangosmoothie with avocado and ginger. Throw about 2 cm of ginger, 1 peeled mango and half an avocado in the blender (in this order). Finally, add fresh yogurt, goat yogurt, or almond milk and you have a delicious healthy smoothie.
As an extra ingredient for biscuits, cakes, applesauce, chutney, or in marinade for meat and fish.
Get started yourself
I had some start-up problems and Hello Fresh has helped me with the application of ginger in the kitchen. So you can order a sample box, there is probably a dish with ginger in between and you don’t have to go through the whole shop. Or just try one of my recipes. I hope to have given you some inspiration for the use of fresh ginger. You can be sure that you will really experience it as a taste sensation and that your ginger will soon no longer leave your kitchen.
