Lemon Grass

(Cymbopogon Citratus) 

You'll probably be most familiar with lemon grass chicken, and for good reason, they taste amazing together! Another Asian recipe to definitely try is Vietnamese pho or bone broth. To use it in soups, get the stem and crush it with the side of a knife or pestle to release the flavours.  

Lemon grass makes a great tea also, I like to make it with ginger, chop finely to extract more flavour. Tea with Lemongrass is said to be good for digestion, stomach aches, high blood pressure, and help with colds and flus.
