With the weather cooling down, our cravings are turning to warming meals that pack a spicy punch. Bowls of saucy pasta sound like just the thing to slurp up on a cool Monday night. Or maybe a platter of spicy fried chicken, served with plenty of Sriracha, is the comfort food you crave in the cold. We know stocking up on dozens of spices can be intimidating, which is why our Orii Riveto Spice Rack, which comes pre-filled with 20 premium herbs and spices, is our favorite kitchen accessory this season. Get inspired, then get cozy with these three spicy fall recipes.
1. Spicy Penne Arrabbiata
This is one of our go-to 15-minute meals when you want something quick and warming. The sauce comes together as the pasta cooks, so pour yourself a glass of Italian wine and whip up this Italian classic in minutes.
What you’ll need from your Orii Spice Rack: Garlic salt, chili flakes, dried parsley.
Here’s how: Cook Barilla penne in a big pot of salted, boiling water. While that’s cooking, heat some Prince & Spring Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a skillet, add a jar of Barilla Marinara Sauce, and a good pinch of chili flakes and garlic salt. Season with salt and pepper, and cook over low heat for a few minutes. Stir through the penne and sprinkle with parsley.
2. Spicy Fried Chicken
Fried chicken is the ultimate comfort food, and we love kicking up the spice by adding extra chili flakes and paprika, then dousing the hot chicken with Sriracha.
What you’ll need from your Orii Spice Rack: Garlic powder, onion powder, chili flakes, paprika, dried parsley, salt, pepper.
3. Coconut Curry Soup
Nothing comforts like a bowl of soup, and this creamy, Asian-inspired soup comes together quicker than ordering takeout.
What you’ll need from your Orii Spice Rack: Curry powder, fried onions, salt, pepper.
Here’s how: sauté a sliced onion and carrot in a tablespoon of Prince & Spring Organic Coconut Oil with a tablespoon of curry powder for a few minutes. Pour Swanson Chicken Broth, add a tin of Goya Coconut Milk and bring to a gentle simmer. Add rice noodles (and if you like, leftover chicken or beef) and cook for an additional three minutes. Serve topped with fried onions.
