Meet Baharat, our “Middle Eastern Multi-Tasker" - Rumi Spice

A common spice blend in Middle Eastern cooking, we've deemed our Baharat the “Middle Eastern multi-tasker." The word baharat translates to “spices” in Arabic and is a blend of Middle Eastern staple spices, including our signature Afghan cumin & coriander. Our flavorful and exotic Persian Gulf Baharat mirrors these traditional flavors and adds a bold, sweet and savory touch to any dish.

How can I use Baharat spice blend?

The warm spice profile of our authentic Baharat makes it the perfect addition to sweet and savory dishes alike. The versatile blend adds the perfect level of zest and richness to grilled kabobs or stone fruit cobblers. Use it as a marinade on meat, whisk it into olive oil for a flavor-packed dressing, or mix with brown sugar for deliciously-addicting spiced nuts.

Explore some of our favorite recipes, both sweet and savory. From classic Middle Eastern dishes to simple sides and salads.
