Choose your Recipe Starter in our shop. Search by main ingredient, diet, meal type or cooking method. Note which recipes include marination time so you can plan ahead. If your Recipe Starter includes rice, beans or lentils plan ahead for washing and soaking.
Look at the back of the package or online product page to find the list of ingredients you'll need at home. This typically includes cooking oil or ghee, fresh ginger, garlic, and cilantro in addition to fresh vegetables or lean meat, depending on your selection.
Prepare your fresh ingredients. This can often be done ahead time. Frozen vegetables, and pre-chopped onions are great timesavers.
Follow the detailed instructions. We recommend reading through the instructions first. Pay particular attention to any ingredients that need to be washed or soaked ahead of time.
Serve according to recipe instructions. Chaptis (Indian flatbread), pita bread or naan are perfect to serve with vegetable dishes. Lentils and bean dishes pair well with Basmati rice.

Everything in our Starters is shelf stable. We do not use preservatives.
