Ras el Hanout

Updated: Dec 18, 2020

I just taught a virtual cooking class where we made Shahshuka, a Moroccan dish of poached eggs in a deeply aromatic tomato sauce. The sauce uses Ras El Hanout, an amazing spice blend from Morocco, but used all over North Africa. You can find it pre-mixed, but it's easy enough to make yourself and tweak to your liking.


  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger

  • 2 teaspoons ground cardamon

  • 2 teaspoons ground mace

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice

  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander seeds

  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground anise seeds

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Combine all ingredients and store in a tight fitting container.
