Ras el Hanout means head of the shop and is a spice mix that can be found online and in many larger markets. It may contain as many as 100 spices and as few as 10. I make a base substitute from spices I have on hand in my own pantry. I make batches of about 1/3 cup that I can keep on hand for several recipes before I need to make more.
