Afghan cuisine has been influenced over thousands of years by Persian, Indian, Chinese and Mediterranean cultures. Spiced rice, peppered with lentils, raisins, carrots and onions are featured at nearly all meals, with spice rubbed grilled kabobs and mint often included as well. We're also featuring Afghani saffron from a company we love, Rumi Spice, started by a pair of US military veterans. Rumi Spice has helped to create a supply of high-quality, sustainably farmed saffron from rural Afghan farmers. Get inspired cooking with these freshly ground Afghan spices, plus we've got plenty of recipes for inspiration!
