There's no guarantee that this is the secret spice mix that Wafaa Powell uses for her Lebanese food @ Vaughan's Cookery School but it is a blend we have tried, as a result of meeting her and enjoying her dishes. You can vary the combinations of spices to suit your palate.
I like ground cardomom instead of allspice and more coriander as a change. It really does cheer up' all sorts of meat, poultry, vegetable and legume dishes. It is tasty but not too hot. Try it:
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon ground allspice
1 tablespoonground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground ginger
- Put in screw top jar and shake well to mix all the spices.
- Add to your recipes in place of pepper
