Why We Love This Recipe

Forget chicken noodle soup, this soup will cure everything that ails you—ginger and chile pepper will clear out your sinuses while mushrooms give your immune system a boost.

About The Chile Pepper Bible

The Chile Pepper Bible is the perfect holiday gift for a friend or family member who loves all things spicy—you know, the ones who put hot sauce on everything? It starts off with a primer on chile peppers, breaking them down type-by-type, and the rest of the book is devoted to recipes. We especially love the chapter on sauces—who needs store-bought hot sauce when you can make your own?!

Some of our favorite recipes include:

  • Moroccan-Style Roasted Pepper and Bread Salad
  • Malaysian-Style Eggplant Curry
  • Singapore Noodles
  • Indonesian Green Beans
  • Harissa
  • Spicy Orange Coconut Cashew Ice Cream
