Ethiopian Berbere

Berbere is the quintessential spice blend of Ethiopian cuisine, lending a rustic, bold flavor to traditional dishes and grilled meats. We hand blend hard-to-find seasonings such as ajowan seed and fenugreek with ground chiles, cardamom, cumin and clove for our Berbere Ethiopian Blend.


Add 1/2 teaspoon Berbere per 1 cup of raw rice at the start of cooking for an exotic flavor
Sauté with onions in butter or oil to start barley or farro pilafs, meat and vegetable stews
Sprinkle on steak, chicken or fatty fish such as salmon before grilling
Sprinkle on vegetables such as squash, carrots, parsnips or sweet potatoes before roasting
Add a pinch to honey cake, spice cake, fruitcake or gingerbread batter
