Ginger Paste


I make ginger paste in my Vitamix (blender). 



It's more economical than buying ginger paste in a jar at the grocery store.  It's simply peeled ginger root cut into about 1" chunks, and enough olive oil and a bit of water, if needed, to blend it well. I refrigerate and freeze it in Tupperware midget cups to add to many dishes for extra flavor and good health. Ginger aids digestion.  The amount shown filled 7 midget cups.

I add ginger paste to some chicken, turkey, and beef dishes, as well as to soups, casseroles, sauces and dressings.
