Health Highlights
Having fresh lemongrass paste around is a great kitchen hack because it can make any weeknight meal a ton more interesting with its distinctive and zippy flavor


2 stalk Lemongrass
1 clove(s) Garlic (chopped)
1 dash Turmeric, powder
3/4 tsp Ginger root
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil


1.  Trim the most of the green ends and a little off the bottom end from the lemongrass stalks.

2.  Peel the garlic and ginger.

3.  You can now chop or use a food processor.  Finely chop the lemongrass, ginger and garlic.

4.  Once your ingredients are finely chopped, you want to pound and smooth into a paste adding the remaining ingredients.  If you want additional flavor, you can add lemon juice and/or lemon zest.  You can season with salt to taste.
