(rahs el haan·oot)
Ras el Hanout explores Moroccan spice shops and kitchens with blend of traditional spices, turmeric, dried chiles, cumin, and salt with hints of galangal and fenugreek. This fine-textured powder delivers both earthy and floral flavors to a variety of dishes.
“Ras el Hanout” is an Arabic phrase that commonly translates to “top shelf,” meaning that it’s the best offering in a spice shop. Traditionally, this blend is hand-mixed by shopkeepers who measure out each ingredient from mounds of colorful spices on display. Considering these spice blends contain up to 100 ingredients, no two versions are the same. Curious Spoon’s proprietary blend has the tasty warm flavor of spices with an underlying saltiness.
As a versatile seasoning, Ras el Hanout shines in traditional Moroccan dishes like couscous and tagines but also adds an enticing flavor to a variety of roasted meats, vegetables, soups, stews, and salads.
