Many of you who are frequent readers of My Halal Kitchen may notice that I post a recipe every month using something from Saffron Road, a unique brand here in the U.S. that offers guaranteed halal-certified products such as globally inspired Simmer Sauces, halal and gluten-free culinary broths, convenient freezer meals that have beef, chicken or lamb and even vegan and vegetarian options, too. They even offer snack mixes using the beloved chickpea, albeit with the most interesting of spices mixed in- Falafel or Korean BBQ, for example. Who would’ve thought? I love that they’re committed to making all of their products halal, of course, but also that they’re part of the NonGMO project and that they’re always looking towards healthy and wholesome, too. That’s why I work with them and that’s why I’m happy to be a Brand Ambassador for them. Yes, I love to make everything I can from scratch- I’m a cook through and through, but let’s be honest- it’s pretty much impossible so far to find quality halal broths to cook with (they’re the only ones I know of) and when it comes to convenience without all the junk, their products have saved me many times over during my kitchen renovation when I literally had no place to cook but a microwave. It doesn’t have to be that drastic for anyone else, but I am just trying to make the point that it feels so good to be able to get their products in a nearby store and know that I don’t have to worry about the quality or integrity of its contents, alhamdullilah. So, if you’re new to this site and didn’t know about Saffron Road before, now you know a little more. Either way, you can enter to win this basket full of their products for you to try out for the first time or just enjoy again- surely it’ll help you stock up your pantry a bit after all that Ramadan cooking, too!
