Our Review

This is my first time checking out Spice Breeze. I don’t subscribe regularly to any meal kit boxes because I like grocery shopping and cooking for my family, but I’ve always found spice subscriptions to be a fun and cheap way to get a new idea to help change up my menu.

The main folder with your spices inside

This month’s theme looks to be a broad South American road trip! I like the folder-style presentation of this subscription so far.

Inspiration this month

Inside the folder is a brief description of the theme and a couple of descriptions of two of our four spice kits. I was a little surprised to see the Laotian Larb being featured on the South America themed kit.

Spice packets

The spices are neatly packaged in envelopes that are stuck inside the folder. One nice touch is that for the spice mixes that have some heat, the hot stuff is packaged separately so you can adjust to your own preferences while you’re cooking.

Meal inspiration

The back of the folder has a preview of a couple of the recipes included.

Jerk Chicken

I initially missed that the ingredients for each spice packet are listed on the recipe card! I think these are made to be folded in half, which is why the photo and name are facing the opposite way of the rest of the text.

Jerk Chicken Recipe

I was surprised at first by how cinnamon-y this blend smelled! I later realized that I was confusing jerk chicken with blackened chicken; cinnamon is a big part of the traditional Jamaican jerk seasoning.

This recipe looked pretty simple and like something I could make with ingredients I often have on hand. I was happy to see that they have some variations (including a vegetarian version!) listed, too.

Carne Asada

Next up is a carne asada recipe! I have to say, I am not always the biggest fan of cumin, but this blend smelled spicy and delicious.

Carne Asada Recipe

Once again, the spiciest parts of the spice blend are packaged separately so you can adjust to taste. I was really intrigued by the guasacaca sauce listed here; it reminded me a bit of a variation on chimichurri that I’ve made before, but the green bell pepper was a new idea for me.

Larb

Larb is described as a traditional meat salad from Laos. The seasoning smelled so good and definitely has a few Asian elements you may be familiar with, like ginger and lemongrass– but combined with cumin and cinnamon, too.

Larb Recipe

So far I love how quick all of these meals are, and they’re pretty simple too. Since this recipe calls for cooked and cooled ground meat, it could easily be prepared in advance.

Michoui Kebab

Finally, our last recipe and seasoning is Mechoui Kebab from Morocco. This seasoning combo smelled fresh but also didn’t stick out to me as unique as some of the other recipes this month.

Michoui Kebab Recipe

I am not a huge fan of lamb, so I’m thinking that I may try the vegetarian version for this one.

I’ve only had a chance to cook up one recipe so far, and went for the Jerk Chicken since I already had the ingredients for a decent meal on hand. I ended up substituting the mango and lettuce for some steamed broccoli, but followed the instructions for the chicken as written:

Finished Jerk Chicken

Finished Jerk Chicken

This was super yummy and definitely a nice change of pace for what is otherwise a pretty typical American-style dinner for us! While the cinnamon definitely had a strong aroma, once cooked it blended in with everything else really nice. I also used all of the “to taste” spice packet and didn’t find it to be hot at all, personally, although we do eat a fair amount of spicy food in our household. My husband particularly loved this so I think jerk chicken will have to be on our monthly rotation from now on.

Verdict: Spice subscriptions can be a fun way to mix things up in the kitchen, and I enjoyed this first Spice Breeze kit! I definitely felt like it gave me some new adventurous ideas vs what I’ve been cooking lately. If you only cook one new recipe each week, the four recipes here will give you something new each week for a full month. I appreciated that the recipes were all fairly simple (all about 30 minutes) and included vegetarian options and an adjustable spice level.
