I spent about 7 months attempting to duplicate a meal I had at Aladdin's Eatery (a Mediterranean food chain) that my husband and I absolutely fell in love with. Thanks to a spice blend I found on The Spice House's website, I was able to do so. It's spicy and sweet all at once, and actually pretty healthy all things considered. Enjoy!
