"This is a great Harissa with excellent flavor and a mild spice. I enjoy using in soups and stews and on roasted veggies. Mix a bit of the harissa with olive oil and it makes a great finisher to veggies, stews, and meat.

    Unique Aspects:

    Our Harissa captures the authentic flavors of Tunisia using premium Afghan spices. Typically a spicy paste, Rumi’s Harissa spice blend can be combined with oil to make a paste or used as a flavor-packed, smoky rub on meat, fish, or poultry. Or, sprinkle some on your shakshuka or roasted carrots and instantly elevate these humble dishes. The main benefit of dried harissa is that it delivers smoky, warm flavor without competing mixing agents—like vegetable oil or water—that can muddy the flavors of a dish or introduce unwanted moisture.

Social Impact and Women's Empowerment

Our mission extends beyond spices. Every purchase from Rumi Spice plays a vital role in empowering Afghan farmers, fostering sustainable agricultural practices, and supporting the economic growth of local communities. We take pride in creating opportunities and championing the roles of these individuals in their communities.

Central to our ethos is the empowerment of Afghan women. We employ them in various roles, from harvesting to processing various spices. This initiative provides them with direct wages and opportunities, fostering their economic independence and highlighting their invaluable contributions to both Rumi Spice and their communities.

Our Mission

The Best Spices are from Afghanistan

Afghanistan's diverse landscape, from the soaring Hindu Kush mountains to the arid plains surrounding Herat, provides an ideal environment for cultivating some of the world's most exquisite spices. This land, nurtured by hot, dry winds and a semi-arid climate, yields unparalleled saffron, renowned globally for its high crocin content, vibrant color, and intense flavor. Beyond saffron, Afghanistan's wild foraged spices, including rare varieties like wild black cumin, are a testament to the purity and richness of the land.

At Rumi Spice, we cherish this connection to Afghanistan, not only for the exceptional quality of its spices but also for the opportunity it presents to empower local communities, preserve traditional practices, and foster sustainable economic growth.
