Coastal Purple Shallot Dried Herb

$10 —

Discover the essence of Asian and Vietnamese cuisine with our Coastal Purple Shallot, carefully cultivated in Vietnam's Central Region, Phan Rang. This essential dried herb is known for its perfectly balanced sweetness and subtle spiciness which delivers a unique and harmonious flavor profile that enhances every dish.

Vân Vân's innovative cold dehydration process preserves the original colors, flavors, and aroma of the dried herbs and allows them to return to their fresh state after a quick rehydration.

Versatile Usage:
Use in place of fresh shallots.
Enhance salads or noodles with a sprinkle.
Rehydrate by mixing equal parts water and dried herbs in a small bowl, allowing them to bloom for one to two minutes before use.

Upgrade your pantry with Coastal Purple Shallot and explore our premium selection of dried herbs, spices, and Asian seasonings.

Coastal Purple Shallot Dried Herb - Single-Origin Vietnamese

Vân Vân was founded by Thảo Bùi & Duy Võ in 2022 to bring the flavors of Việt Nam to your kitchen. After college, they moved to New York, despite dealing with immigration challenges and struggling to live in the city, they never lost sight of their dream: starting a business that paid homage to our native Việt Nam. But things took a dramatic turn in 2022 when Thảo was diagnosed with a brain tumor, blurring the line between life and death. After a grueling 16-hr long surgery, Thảo emerged victorious. During her recovery, she developed a newfound appreciation for life and knew she wanted to do something more meaningful. She started a series of cooking pop-ups and pick-ups that eventually led to an inbox flooded with orders from customers around the city. But amid all the cooking and preparation and weekly food hauls, Thảo and Duy found themselves yearning to build something more, something that would bring them closer to home. In the summer of 2022, Vân Vân came to life with a foundation rooted in Vietnamese home cooking, history, and culture. At the heart of their business is a commitment to invest in local growers and support their livelihoods by paying a fair price for their products. By partnering with these growers, they aim to bring premium Vietnamese products to the world, showcase the country’s diverse flavors, and represent Việt Nam as more than just a war.
