Berbere is a traditional Ethiopian spice blend and is a staff favorite. We love this spicy-sweet-spicy (did we mention spicy) blend. It's a must for lentils. We love it on grilled chicken thighs. This is a fun blend that really makes an impact. We served these at a store event and received tons of requests for the recipe. Whip these up for your next get together, and watch them disappear!

With ingredients like cashews, nutritional yeast, chia seeds, capers and Himalayan Pink salt, this recipe is a keeper for both vegan and non-vegans alike.

This dip is flavorful, simple to make and is easily adapted into a vegan and gluten-free recipe. Just make the dip without sour cream or substitute hummus instead, and switch out the pita bread for your favorite non-gluten dipping option.
