ROBUST. SPICY. EARTHY.
PERFECT FOR SLOW COOKED STEWS, LENTILS & GRILLED MEATS. 

Berbere is an Ethiopian chilli powder. It magically transforms even the humblest ingredients into extraordinarily vibrant dishes by lending deep complex flavours to lentils, cabbage, stews and cheap cuts of meat. If you're a fan of Ethiopian cooking and thought you couldn't cook it at home, think again.

Berbere is most commonly used in "wats", rich Ethiopian stews of meat or lentils that are eaten with tangy flat bread used as a fork to scoop up the spicy goodness. Traditional Ethiopian stews are made with onions and spiced butter but the secret to their intense flavour is, you guessed it, the humble Berbere Ethiopian spice mix.

But you don't have to cook an Ethiopian meal to use this robust Berbere Ethiopian Spice Blend. It's great rubbed on grilled chicken or beef steak and adds lots of flavour to all kinds of braised meats or roasted vegetables. It's also insanely good in anything slow cooked to add an exotic aroma and  a gorgeous deep rusty colour.
