This Moroccan Spice Blend is a wonderful mix of fragrant earthy spices that will lift your food and add that unmistakable Moroccan edge.
Rub this over a chicken thigh and then roast along side some sweet potato and carrots, you have a warming and effort free dinner.
Or sprinkle it over some buttered couscous, flecked with sultanas and you can drift away to dreams of dancing in the sand, wearing a silk sarong, as the sun sets.
In a sealed jar this Moroccan Spice Mix will keep for a good 6 months, longer if your spices are new.
I don’t add salt to my spice mix as I like to have full control over the salt in a dish, but if you want a general all around seasoning then add 1/2 tbsp of table salt to the spice blend recipe.
Try using this mix in my Moroccan Spiced Chicken Salad.
