What is Berbere?

The backbone of Ethiopian and Eritrean cooking, Berbere is a spice blend that encompasses the beautiful and distinctive flavor of the North African region. Spicy, peppery, and mildly sweet, our Ethiopian Berbere packs some serious flavor.

How to use it

Use this flavor-packed blend to complement the inherent sweetness of any pork dish, or craft a traditional Ethiopian creation like Doro wot (Ethiopia's version of curry). Sprinkle some on roasted vegetables or whisk into olive oil for a spicy dry rub on beef, chicken or whole grilled fish.

Berbere in the burgers

Last night I made turkey burgers and added a dash of berbere spice to the mix. The burgers were a big hit. This was my first time to use berbere spice. I love experimenting with Rumi spice mixes.

Fragrant

I grew up with Egyptian foods...love Syrian spices...THIS IS THE BEST. It is fragrant and spicy. There are so many usages. Bake your eggplant with it. Read the spice ingredient and realize there are so many usages for this spice to be added to somethings you cook may be more familiar with. I love it!

Excellent !!

I used the Berbere as a rub on chicken thighs and legs. It smelled so good going on the chicken. The aroma was even better as the chicken baked. It tasted wonderful. This is the best Berbere I have used. The spices are divine, the heat is well balanced and does not overwhelm the taste. Those who want more heat can easily add it. Rumi has done a fantastic job creating this Ethiopian Berbere!
