Baharat | Lebanese 7 Spice Blend

Baharat is the Arabic word for spices and this term is commonly used to denote a spice blend. This typical Lebanese-style spice blend includes the warm spices such as cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, coriander, cloves and ginger plus a hefty dose of black pepper for kick.

Use on any meats or mix into condiments, use in soups, beans etc. Mix up a batch and keep in your larder for some quick, no -brainer seasoning.

I have used Baharat in a Lebanese meat pie recipe called Beef Fatayer and it was fabulous. It would also go great in a crockpot with a roast or with some ground beef for a Middle Eastern burrito type of situation.

Have you tried Middle Eastern food before? It is really easy to prepare without special skills required, in fact it’s my latest favorite cuisine.
