Here’s an easy-peasy snack that’s full of flavor. Soy sauce and fresh ginger transform almond butter into a dip with an Asian flair. Can we talk about ginger for a minute? Most of us know that ginger helps with nausea and stomach ailments, but did you know that it also contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds? I used just 1/4 cup of fresh ginger here, because large amounts can be very spicy. I know this because a few weeks ago I ordered a “Ginger Immunity” drink at a juice bar and almost blew my eardrums out. Another tip: a tool called a rasp makes quick work of grating ginger. Look for them in kitchen supply stores; they are terrific for grating citrus, hard cheeses, garlic and ginger.
