Berbere Spice Blend

Have you ever spent way too much money on high-dollar spice blends? Many - if not all - of the ingredients in the blends are spices you may already have on hand. Making your own is super easy and cost effective...and it's kinda fun, too. Berbere is a spice blend that is often used in Ethiopian cuisine, and I warn you - it has a kick!


  • 1/2 cup ground cayenne

  • 1/3 cup paprika

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground fenugreek (aka methi)

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon finely ground sea salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground allspice

  • pinch of ground cloves


  1. Mix and store in a glass container.

  2. Enjoy!
