|Lebanese cuisine includes generous amounts of fish, fruits, seafood and vegetables while animal fats are practically never used. Chicken is preferred over red and meat and like much of the Mediterranean region, the food that the Lebanese eat is dictated by what's in season. Food is usually baked or sautéed in olive oil or grilled. Vegetables are eaten cooked, pickled or raw. A key to just about every Lebanese meal is a local flat bread where it is used in place of a fork.
Lebanese 7 Spice is an important spice blend in most Lebanese kitchens where this flavorful seasoning is used as a dry rub on chicken, fish and on meats such as minced lamb. It’s found in these traditional Lebanese dishes – Grilled Meat Balls (Kafta Mechwe), Minced Meat Pizza Pie (Lahme Bajin) and Stuffed Zucchini (Koussa Mehche).
Lebanese 7 Spice is not the same as Arabic 7 Spice.
Lebanese 7 Spice is hand blended from black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, allspice, fenugreek and nutmeg.
