If you make the Spiced Roasted Chicken and Cranberry Bean Chili, you’ll have some of the fragrant Middle Eastern spice blend known as baharat left over. Rather than letting it linger in the back of your pantry, try these suggestions for using it up.

Lamb burgers
Mix baharat into ground lamb, shape into patties, and grill or broil. Serve in a pita with a cucumber salad.

Spiced hummus
Stir baharat to taste into your favorite hummus for a more flavorful dip.

Middle Eastern-style grilled fish
Rub baharat on fish fillets or over the skin and in the cavity of a whole fish before grilling or baking.

Roasted vegetables with baharat
Toss vegetables with olive oil and baharat before roasting—it’s especially good with eggplant.
