Toasted Spice Blend (Africa - Morocco)

Toasted Spice Blend (Africa - Morocco) created by COOKGIRl

I liked this recipe I found in "Food for 50" for it's ease of prep & because it would allow me to bring a taste of Africa & Morocco to my Icelandic kitchen. It's also the 1st recipe I've seen that came w/a "warning" of sorts - "Use sparingly to season soups, stews & meats. The flavor profile compliments Moroccan & African dishes, but remember spice flavors intensify when toasted." (Use for marinades, rubs & general seasoning)

    I tried to use as many whole spices as available in my pantry. Ground them finely in a clean coffee mill (which I own for this specific purpose). Tested on a quick garbanzo bean salad: beans, spice mixture, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and fresh cilantro. Monday we'll test the mixture on grilled tofu. Reviewed for ZWT 6.

    This is so fragrant and yummy. This can be used on so many dishes. I plan on using this tonight on flank steak. Made for ZWT 6.
