DedeMed Mediterranean Cooking Spices Seven Spice Review and Giveaway

Sponsored by Tomoson.com
DedeMed Spice blends are manufactured using the highest quality, premium spices sourced from all over the world. They are expertly blended to provide a balanced, authentic flavor true to their heritage. All of the spice material is fresh, vibrant; and has been cleaned and treated for microbiological contamination. DedeMed Spice Blends are manufactured in a facility that uses Good Manufacturing Practices and currently has a “Superior” Food Safety Rating from the American Institute of Baking.

In 2007, with the help of her tech savvy husband, Denise Hazime launched her website Dedemed.com and her YouTube channel with the hopes of sharing her knowledge of Mediterranean cuisine with all those wanting to learn to cook the food they love, eat healthy, or to get back in touch with their cultural roots. With interactive video recipes she teaches people how to make their favorite Mediterranean and Middle Eastern foods at home -- everything from Hummus, to Falafel, to Baklava and Couscous.
We love Burgers so this is the recipe I followed while using DedeMed Metiterranean  Gourmet Seven Spice.
Serves: 4-6     Difficulty: easy     Prep and Cook time: 20 minutes

1 lb. ground beef (or any meat you like)
1 cup flat leaf parsley
1 cup onion
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp 7 spices
Burger buns
Tomatoes 

Mayonnaise Sauce
3/4 cup mayonnaise 
1 clove minced garlic
1 tbs lemon juice
1/4 tsp paprika (optional)

shot of mustard

Onion Parsley Garnish
1/2 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
1/2 cup sliced onion
1 tbs sumac
1/2 tsp salt
In a food processor blend the onion and parsley until well blended, then add the ground meat, salt and 7 spices and blend until well combined.  Form meat into 4 or 6 burgers and cook on grill or in a pan for 7-8 minutes.  For the  mayonnaise sauce in a bowl combine the mayonnaise,  lemon juice, garlic, mustard and paprika and set aside for topping. For onion parsley garnish in a bowl combine the onions, parsley, salt and sumac.  To assemble the burgers, toast the buns and top both sides with  mayonnaise sauce, add burger and top with onion/parsley then top with the other bun. Serve with  tomatoes.

Seven (7) Spices
These burgers tasted wonderful! I love trying new recipes and this one was delicious. Just the right kick for the same old burger!
