Recently, I have been experimenting with different spice blends. Most of my recipes are low fat, all natural and fast and easy. Therefore, I find the best way to add pizazz to a dish is by interesting and balanced seasoning.
Last week, I thought I would try making schwarma hamburgers.
1 lbs. ground meat
1 tablespoon schwarma spice blend, approximately
1 teaspoon meat spice blend (posted earlier on blog)
Schwarma Spice Blend
1 tablespoon cumin, coriander and garlic
1/2 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon turmeric, and pepper
1/2 teaspoon cloves, cinnamon and cayenne pepper
Store in covered jar.
