Berbere spice, also known as Ethiopian Spice Blend, is a crucial component of many Ethiopian dishes such as Doro Wat. The name “berbere” means “hot” in Amharic and the name is quite appropriate as the blend begins with a tongue-exhilarating rush of cayenne, Aleppo pepper, and black and white peppers.
Berbere is the quintessential spice blend of Ethiopian cuisine. It’s earthy, slightly sweet and spicy flavor adds a rustic, bold flavor to traditional dishes and grilled meats.
