Berbere Spice Blend awakens your taste buds with a fiery-hot heat followed by a calming earthy sweetness. Delicious rustic and bold flavors combine to embody the signature flavor of Ethiopian cuisine.
Berbere, meaning “hot” in Amharic, is a versatile ingredient that caters to Ethiopian cuisine’s classic kick. Crafted from spices native to China and the Middle East, this multiculturally-influenced mix journeyed down the Silk Road to East Africa during the 5th century. Berbere became a beloved household ingredient with families creating their own recipes to be handed down through the generations. Combining a unique blend of herbs and spices including ajowan seeds, fenugreek, cardamom, and cloves, we’ve crafted our tasty Berbere Spice Blend to strike the perfect balance of flavor.
This deep orange-colored blend is delicious when sautéed with oil and onions. Spice up a soup, braise, or stew such as the national Ethiopian dish, Doro Wat, or season your grilled meats with Berbere Spice Blend.
Spices (including coriander, fennel, fenugreek, ajowan), paprika, salt, citric acid.
