(#93) CARDAMOM LEMON: The One and Only Cardamom

A few weeks ago, I ate at my first Afghani restaurant. I ordered Kofta Challow and more importantly--cardamom ice cream.  I have a real soft spot for cardamom, mostly because it was in flavor #1 (Turkish Coffee).  I've used it quite a bit throughout the project, actually, but never really gave it the attention it deserved. 

I loved taking a bite and tasting the cardamom without the distraction of a coffee flavor or other (equally lovable) spices.

A vegan version of this flavor was suggested by my friend Jan Marie. I didn't choose the vegan one for my blog, but it does work well with coconut substitutes!
