Berbere Spice Mix

Berbere is a blend of spices used in Ethiopian cooking. If you don’t have whole spices, you can use ground ones.


  • whole cardamom pod
  • whole clove
  • whole allspice
  • ⅛ tsp whole fenugreek seeds
  • ⅛ tsp ground ginger
  • ⅛ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ⅛ tsp ground turmeric


Remove the seeds from the cardamom pod. Toast the cardamom, clove, allspice and fenugreek seeds in a dry skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until the spices become fragrant. Remove from the heat, let cool and grind in a mortar and pestle until fine. Stir in the ginger, nutmeg, and turmeric.
