I have been updating and creating some new spice blends recently. Cooking much more at home than ever before, having a variety of on hand spice blends is a convenient way to get dinner on the table quickly and easily.

If you have at least 3 or 4 in your pantry, even something simple like grilled or roasted chicken can be different every time you make it so that you and your family do not get bored with the same flavor profile.

All you need is one of these spice blends and the main ingredient and dinner is super quick and easy. No chopping and slicing and measuring needed using a variety of herbs and spices. Who has time for all of that, especially now with so many parents adding homeschooling to their agenda while remotely working themselves?

Before we get to today’s amazing Advieh – Persia Spice Mix, let’s take a look at some others that can easily be added to your pantry.

Advieh Berenj

Advieh in Persian means spice and this Persian Spice Mix is most often used in rice, hence the full name is Advieh Berenj, which translates to Rice Spice.

However, I think you can do so much more with this flavorful spice blend than reserving it for rice alone. The combination or rose, cinnamon and other smoky spices is such a flavorful punch!

Mix it with a little yogurt and you can make this awesome Persian Roast Chicken – so full of flavor and so easy for a weeknight dinner. Pair it with Roasted Cauliflower Fattoush for a healthy low carb meal!

To stay in that region of the world – finish off your meal with Sfoof – Lebanese Turmeric Cake!

Now doesn’t that meal sound fantastic!
