Seasoned with Spice Infused Onions and a Spice Giveaway

Steamed onions seasoned with Aleppo pepper, lemongrass and sweet ginger sea salt from Season with Spice

 

Today, you’re getting a double whammy – a tasty little side dish recipe and a chance to win one of two uniquely delicious spice kits in a giveaway from Season With Spice, my most favorite small business!  The Seasoned With Spice Infused Onions dish introduces you to three of Season With Spice’s seasonings and will have you wanting to try more.  So let’s start with the recipe.

Seasoned with Spice Infused Onions is a simple dish in which onions are steamed in their own juices along with a complementary blend of spices. The cooking method is similar to that used with my Fennel Infused Onions from a couple of years ago.  However, the seasoning is completely different, showing you how versatile this simple side can be.


Today’s seasonings all came from Season With Spice, an Asian spice shop owned and operated by the nicest and most genuine couple – Reese and Mark. I have only met Reese and Mark virtually, but during the past year Reese and I have had many conversations about food and spices (and a few other things :)), and I just know that one day we will meet, and that we’ll spend the day playing around in the kitchen chatting like old friends.   But until then, I will be helping you get to know them as I do through their spices, many of which I have already formed an addiction to.

For example, these onions are infused with the flavors of Aleppo chili pepper flakes, sweet ginger sea salt, and lemongrass powder.  I had never used lemongrass powder before, in fact, I didn’t even know it existed until I saw it used in Reese’s Coconut Lime Dressing.  Now I know that it will have a permanent spot in my pantry, along with many of their other spices.  Together these three seasonings create a dish that is a little spicy, a little sweet (mostly due to the sweet onions), and with a hint of lemon ginger.  I hope you try them all very soon.

And the WINNERS are…….

Cynthia C. and Candie L……CONGRATULATIONS!

Winners will be receiving an email from Season with Spice (SwS) by the end of the week.  Please respond to SwS as soon as possible once you receive their email.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments and support of Small Business!!!!


Season with Spice - an Asian Spice Shop

With this being Small Business Saturday weekend, where small businesses like us ask for your support, we wanted instead to thank everyone for their support over the past year. Making a small business successful only happens when you have close friends like MJ cheering you on.

From day one when we launched the Season with Spice shop – specializing in premium Asian spices & blends – MJ has spiced & cooked, commented & emailed, inspired & motivated, to keep us on track, to keep us positive, and to keep us working hard to make the business a success.

Small businesses need people with big hearts – to keep you focused on seeing past the doubts that creep in with every challenge you face. So on this Small Business Saturday, we are thankful to call MJ our good friend, and thankful to have the biggest heart in New Mexico encouraging us every day.

To say thank you to MJ and of all you, her readers, we are giving away two of our spice kits – Chili Flakes Spice Kit & Curry Powder Spice Kit.

Asian Chili from seasonwithspice.com

Our Chili Flakes Spice Kit includes Chipotle Chili Flakes (a spice with a real kick, and an enticingly smoky aroma), Aleppo Chili Flakes (mild, but packs a punch of flavor with fruity, salty, vinegary notes), and Korean Chili Flakes (rich, vibrant, and fruity with a spiciness that builds, but doesn’t overwhelm).

Curry Blends from seasonwithspice.com

Our Curry Powder Spice Kit consists of Sri Lankan Curry Powder (a rich, mildly spicy blend of warming spices), Sweet & Spicy Curry Powder (a balanced, versatile curry powder with a deliciously flavorful kick), and Garam Masala (the quintessential blend of South Asia with a hearty mix of smoky, vivid flavors).

 

details of giveaway

Two winners will be selected! One will receive our Chili Flakes Spice Kit (Korean Chili Flakes, Chipotle Chili Flakes, and Aleppo Chili Flakes) and the other will receive our Curry Powder Spice Kit (Sweet & Spicy Curry Powder, Garam Masala, and Sri Lankan Curry Powder).

To enter, just leave a comment below telling us if you already have, or will be, shopping in person or online at a small business this busy holiday weekend. And if you like, please give a shout out to the business in your comment. [Bonus entry details below*]

Who can enter? Anyone! But the prize can only be mailed to a US address.

Enter by 11:59pm EST on Sunday, December 8th. Two winners will be randomly selected (via Random.org), announced on this post, and notified by December 9th. Good luck!

    Hi MJ – what a lovely looking side-dish! I’d not heard of “aleppo” chilli before… what’s it like? Strong? Mild? Smoky?

    • mj December 5, 2013 at 8:24 pm #

      Thanks Charles! Aleppo is quite spicy, but relative sweet for a pepper. Season with spice describes it as “mildly-spicy kick, and fruity, salty, vinegary notes”. That’s a good description of it.

    What a great sounding dish, MJ. We too often think of onions as an ingredient used in other dishes and not one that can stand on its own. Finding a recipe that highlights onion is always nice.
    I try to shop at small businesses whenever I can. From hardware to pet supplies, I’ll choose Mom & Pop over big box every time.

  119. Sissi December 3, 2013 at 3:33 am #

    MJ, your onions sound so original! Even without the unusual spices (I haven’t heard about the lemongrass powder either), I bet they would be fantastic simply with some chilli. They look so sophisticated… you made me hungry for onions now :-)

  120. Raymund December 2, 2013 at 3:12 pm #

    What a simple yet flavor dish! I am big on using spices and I love to support small businesses whenever I can and that includes holiday shopping. Thanks for sharing!

  132. Vicki Bensinger December 1, 2013 at 7:48 pm #

    I didn’t shop at all this weekend. I’ve been busy working and preparing for a class I’m teaching other than when I was celebrating and prepping for Thanksgiving. However, whenever I can I always try to buy from our local and small businesses in the area.

    Nice recipe. I’m sure these onions taste divine!

  133. Amy (Savory Moments) December 1, 2013 at 5:57 pm #

    These onions look awesome and I love the support of small businesses. I like to go to a small yogurt shop and of course all the local winter farmers’ markets!

  134. Lauren Easler December 1, 2013 at 5:28 pm #

    I definitely will be. I will be shopping for friends and family for small jewelry businesses all over etsy. They make the most beautiful and unique jewelry around.

    Love this delicious recipe! I am thinking about tacos, for some odd reason my mind wondered that way. We did shop at a small business this weekend. I found two beautiful decanters at a local antique store. I love buying local. Hugs, Terra

    Your onions sound fantastic MJ! I’d love them on some grilled steak tacos.

  145. Sue Z. December 1, 2013 at 1:21 pm #

    We have tons of small businesses here in Wichita that we normally shop at – one of which is (ironically) called The Onion Tree. We prefer using the small businesses, as we are more apt to find what we want.

  146. Danielle December 1, 2013 at 12:43 pm #

    I will be doing most of my shopping online

  147. tina phillips December 1, 2013 at 11:57 am #

    First thank you for an awesome giveaway! I shop exclusively small online business and etsy shops over the holidays and most of the year actually. I love the service and the fact I can find something unique and fun that you cant find retail. And I hate shopping in the stores and fighting the crowds, this way shopping is actually enjoyable!

  148. Claire December 1, 2013 at 11:16 am #

    I’ll be shopping online.

  149. Jennifer December 1, 2013 at 10:59 am #

    I won’t be doing any small business shopping this weekend, but I will next weekend! Mostly I’ll be shopping online though.

    Shopped in person at a local boutique. They have clothing and gift items that are so unique and couldn’t find anywhere else! Yay small businesses!

  157. Merry December 1, 2013 at 7:45 am #

    Isn’t it amazing how close we can become to our virtual connections? I think that has been the greatest surprise and pleasure for me about the blogging world: a universe of friends waiting to be discovered. My spices are looking rather lackluster these days MJ, so I’m quite excited about this post. Your infused onions sound like the perfect side…yum. A couple of my favourite emerging businesses — Montreal born: Davids Tea; Blue Lavande (Eastern Townships: Quebec); and artist Kelly Rae Roberts out of Portland Oregon :). p.s. I don’t think I’ve ever used lemongrass in powder form either – how neat!

  176. Ramona November 30, 2013 at 2:25 pm #

    I love onions and these infused onions look amazing! I would totally eat this on buttered bread. :) Hope you had a fantastic holiday weekend.

  177. Amy November 30, 2013 at 8:25 am #

    Yes, indeed I’m going to our neighborhood shopping area – to the little cooking school, butcher and green grocer’s – with maybe a stop at the dress shop! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I’m not familiar with Season with Spice, so thank you for the intro!

  183. Bam's Kitchen November 30, 2013 at 5:51 am #

    MJ, your infused onions look so delicious. A fun and easy recipe and I am sure they taste good with so many Asian dishes. I think these infused onions would make a fantastic accompaniment to my pomelo and shrimp salad. Wishing you a super weekend. Take care, BAM

    I shop at small business quite often, both online and off. Do ETsy shops count as small businesses? I have several of those I order from fairly often. Those onions look delish, the the way!

    In fused onions is a really enticing concept. I am really curious about the lemongrass powder. I have not yet but will visit in person a couple of small business for gifts.

  193. Suzi November 29, 2013 at 10:48 am #

    Hi MJ. That seasoned spice infused onions look fantastic and something I will be trying. Thanks for sharing this new spice company with us and very nice to meet you Reese & Mark. I will be doing all 4 likes. Also going over to check out the spice shop.
    Love stopping here MJ there is always something for me. Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving and a wonderful weekend to you.

  194. John@Kitchen Riffs November 29, 2013 at 9:23 am #

    Terrific looking recipe! This looks like a lot of fun both to make and eat. I didn’t know you could buy lemongrass powder either – I need some of that! Really terrific giveaway, too. We will be doing virtually no shopping this weekend (too crowded), but our favorite local shop is the Wine Merchant! Amazing service – we tell them what we’re serving and what price we want to spend on wine, and they always have spot-on recommendations. Fun post – thanks.

  195. Deborah Larson November 29, 2013 at 8:43 am #

    As a new subscriber to MJ’s I found the Season with Spice site and I love both MJ and Season with Spice. I will be ordering spices in the next day or two and cooking some of the great recipes MJ continues to offer.

    Living in New Hampshire where small businesses always need a helping hand, I try to support them. I’ll be buy some Christmas decorations from Ford Florist as they always have beautiful items not seen in the big box stores. I had no idea about lemongrass powder…that would be so useful as lemongrass is not always available in our market.

  198. Sally November 29, 2013 at 8:33 am #

    My favorite small business is Hey Jhonny’s, a unique gift shop. I’m always buying something there.
