Oftentimes confused with ginger, galanga (also called galangal or blue ginger) has a piney bouquet and a tighter skin than its rhizome relative. Galanga is an important ingredient for Southeastern Asian cookery and is indispensable for popular Thai soups tom yum goong and tom kha gai.

Use it: As you would ginger. Peel, slice into thin strips and use in soups. Crush into a paste with shallots, garlic and chiles for a spicy meat, poultry or seafood curry. One teaspoon of ground powder is equivalent to ½ inch of peeled, chopped galanga.

Find it: In the frozen section at Global Foods Market, 421 N. Kirkwood Road, Kirkwood, 314.835.1112 and in powdered form at Penzey’s Spices, 7338 Manchester Road, Maplewood, 314.781.7177
