SEVEN

Baharat, meaning simply, “Spices” in Arabic, contains toasted and ground whole black peppercorn, cumin, allspice, coriander, and clove, blended with sweet paprika, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of cardamom. SALT FREE.

While the recipe varies from region to region, this version stays true to the delicious basics of seven spices plus a pinch of cardamom.

A smoky and slightly sweet spice that lends wonderful aroma and flavor to everything it touches, traditionally used in soups, stews, marinades, on meat, fish, grains, and vegetables, even breads.

Mix into ground meat for your next burgers on the grill. Or add to meatballs and bake or fry. Equally delicious on beef, lamb, chicken, even fish.

Blend with olive oil and lemon juice to marinade shawarma meats and vegetables. Season chicken and vegetables for traditional ghallaba stew.

Toss your favorite vegetables with olive oil and a pinch of salt, season liberally with SEVEN and bake or grill. Absolutely divine on grilled sweet potatoes.

Add to your next batch of grains or legumes.
