Baharat Spice Mix

The word Baharat translates to spices but typically refers to a blend of spices commonly found in Arabic and Iraqi cooking and across the Gulf States. This is a sweet, warm, and earthy mix that pairs well with meats such as beef, lamb, and chicken, tomato sauces, roasted vegetables, and even desserts.
