Hello plant based foodies, wherever you are in the world!

Here @sirenahippie

Today we are back, for the Fifth Edition of this weekly vegan challenge YOUR VEGGIE SHOPPING, activity to know more about the shopping experience that all of you, dear users, have to supply your pantry with food either in the markets, in the different commercial establishments or directly in the field, with the producers.

Today, Saturday 11/19/2022, our Fourth Edition (Spices) ends. This time we had a total of 6 entries, all very interesting and wonderful, although two of the entries were disqualified for not following the conditions of the challenge. The four entries valid for this edition, all of them winners, were the following:



spice shopping | by @hindavi

If anyone knows about spices, it's @hindavi. In her native India, she learned the use and benefits that these wonderful ingredients bring to the kitchen; however, currently she lives in Norway, so it is very difficult for her to find the variety and freshness that she would like in her spices, even so, she found a place where she can buy quality spices and she takes us for a walk to know how she does her spice shopping.

In Indonesian gastronomy, the use of a variety of spices is very common, and this is demonstrated by @yulia-hive when she takes us on a walk to buy spices in a local supermarket. She chooses very well the purchases she will make based on the dishes she plans to prepare for the week.



Shop the Vegan Spice Edition and Tips for Storing Them | by @nurfay

On this occasion @nurfay takes us for a walk to a traditional market, where she finds a variety of incredible spices, at a very good price, and with great quality. There are spices that she can hardly buy elsewhere, and that perhaps are unknown in other countries, that's why she chooses this market, because there she finds all the necessary spices for her to cook her delicious Indonesian dishes.

Also, in her great post, @nurfay offers us tips on how to store spices so that they have maximum durability and also guides us on how to use them in the kitchen. A really complete post that she made for this challenge. We congratulate she on her excellent participation.



Mis Compras de Verduras #4 (Especias) (Ing/Esp) | by @daysiselena

If anyone learned very well how to use spices to enhance their benefits for human health, that's @daysiselena, who, after caring for her sister with cancer, learned how to combine spices in food to make the most of their medicinal properties and nutritional. And this time she takes us to a supermarket where she buys spices, and also tells us how she uses them in her dishes.
