Moroccan-Inspired Spice Blend

I love Moroccan cuisine. The flavors are really like none I’ve had elsewhere. The rich and nutty combination of cinnamon, cardamom, cumin and other spices will make you question why people ever settle to just add salt into their dishes. If you have never had Moroccan Cuisine, then I urge you to  explore some recipes!
I will be posting a recipe for my Moroccan-Inspired Chili dish, soon.

This Moroccan Spice blend is known as Ras El-Hanout. Mine DOES deviate from the traditional recipe blend, because I add garlic and did not have any cloves at-hand (Please don’t kill me, fellow Moroccan friends!!).

1/2 tsp Coriander
1 tsp Cumin
¼ tsp Ground Cayenne red pepper powder
1 tsp Dark Brown Sugar
1 tsp Salt
½ tsp Cinnamon
¼ tsp Garlic Powder
½ tsp Black Pepper
1. Blend all ingredients until well-combined. Store in an air-tight container in a dry area. Add spice mix to your dishes, and enjoy!
