Za’atar Recipe

This easy Za’atar Recipe is a Middle Eastern spice blend made with just 4 ingredients. Try it on meats, vegetables, homemade bread, dips, soups, or salads.

Za’atar Spice is like chili powder or chai: The name itself is generic and there are as many blends as there are cooks.

My blend consists of dried thyme, sesame seeds, sumac, and salt. That’s it! It’s an easy way to spice up recipes already in your repertoire, especially if you are considering a Middle Eastern or Mediterranean menu.

How to Make Za’atar

In addition to thyme, sesame seeds, sumac, and salt, you could also add dried oregano or marjoram.

MY LATEST RECIPES

Sometimes everything is pulsed in a food processor or blend until finely ground while other times the spices are left whole (as in my recipe).

Or, instead of using dried herbs, some recipes used a pile of fresh, finely chopped hyssop or oregano.

  1. Kindly send us some recipes like Indian Thai continental Chinese snacks etc.

    • Hey there, I’d love to! Could you please give me some exact names of recipes so I can work on them for you? I am not super familiar with the snacks you are talking about and don’t want to make the wrong thing. Any details would be appreciated! I would be so excited to do this. Thank you!

  2. I agree that zaatar should contain no more than four ingredients. May I suggest a website that sell the best zaatar so far. http://www.eatzaatar.com they offer a real zaatar herb (hyssop) which I found is different than the regular thyme.
