Lemongrass Powder provides the subtle citrus, earthy flavor of this Asian herb, conveniently dried and ground for easy and consistent use.
Lemongrass is rich in a substance called Citral, the active indredient in a lemon peel. It is considered a diuretic, tonic and stimulant. Lemon Grass promotes good digestion and has been used for relief of nausea.
Used mainly in Asian, Thai, Vietnamese, Malaysian and Indonesian cuisine, it imparts a bright lemony flavor to soups, stocks, stews and curries. Lemongrass pairs well with garlic, galangal, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, coconut, Thai basil, cilantro and chilies.
1 tsp. equals about one stalk of fresh lemongrass.
Whisk into coconut milk for a rich, clean flavor to add to soups, curry or sauces. Add to marinades or rub into meats before grilling. Emulsify with oil, vinegar, salt and pepper for a tangy salad dressing.
