Lebanese 7 Spice mix

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

  1. Put in screw top jar and shake well to mix all the spices.
  2. Add to your recipes in place of pepper
