New York Shuk has taken their popular Shawarma Spice Blend and has used it as inspiration for this convenient sauce, making the mouthwatering flavors of shawarma—meat cooked on a vertical rotating spit—even easier to attain in the kitchen. The combination of juicy tomatoes and a medley of piquant spices like cumin, coriander, paprika, turmeric, garlic, mace and cardamom, give this sauce a zesty boldness for enlivening meat, vegetables, legumes and more.
How to use
Ideal for marinating all kinds of meat and seafood, this vegan sauce is also great for giving vegetables and tofu the shawarma treatment as well. Toss cauliflower, mushrooms or chickpeas with Shawarma BBQ Sauce before roasting, swipe across burger and hotdog buns or add a dollop to curries or stews to amp up their warm heat.
