Baharat, which simply means "spice" in Arabic, is an all-purpose seasoning used in Middle Eastern cuisine. Although the particular blend varies by region and household, it always includes black pepper and typically has cumin, cinnamon and cloves, among other spices.
Aromatic, warm and sweet, a pinch of baharat can add depth and flavour to soups, tomato sauces, lentils, rice pilafs, and cous cous. It can also be used as a rub for fish, poultry and meat; mixed with olive oil and used as a vegetable marinade; and blended with garlic, parsley, and olive oil to make a condiment paste.
