Plant Based 

Hand Crafted Spice Blend


Ethiopian Berbere


Ethiopian Berbere spice blend plays a crucial role in making an authentic Doro Wat (chicken stew) accompanied by a spongy flatbread, called Ingera. This blend is unique with hints of chili, cumin, fenugreek, allspice, cardamom, and cloves. Add Ethiopian Berbere as a coating on chicken breasts to make flavorful fried chicken. I use a liberal amount, make it into a paste with oil or ghee, or water and coat a rack of lamb, then top it with panko breadcrumbs.


This spice blend works exceptionally well on gamey-type meats, such as venison, duck, goat, and quail.


Comes in our signature airtight tin, which measures 2-1/2 inches in diameter and 1-3/4 inches in height.

  • My first taste of Berbere was not in Doro Wat (chicken stew) but Dabbo Kolo, a favorite snack sold by a street food vendor. 

    Dabbo Kolo is made with wheat flour, water, butter, and salt and mixed with the Berbere spice blend. While I do enjoy making an authentic Doro Wat, I substitute the Ingera, the spongy flatbread for Indian flatbread, pita, couscous or basmati rice. Try a dash or two on burgers, pot roast, or zest up grilled tofu.


    All of our herbs, spices, and blends are the best way to add flavor to food for no extra calories, sugar, sodium, or other junk—which is critical to do when you're trying to lose weight or make that lifestyle shift towards wellness.

    Why? It's pretty simple: Research shows that if you don't like the taste of what you eat, you're much less likely to stick to any diet, no matter how disciplined you are. Herbs and spices add a significant amount of flavor to food and can turn, for example, that piece of plain chicken or vegetable into a restaurant-worthy meal, thanks to just a little pinch and dash of herbs and spices.


    All our whole spices and spice blends are Zero Sodium, No Salt, No Sugar, No MSG, No Preservatives, No Fillers and Gluten Free- no other crap in them but pure herbs, spices and mindful loving.

May we help you?
