Za'atar Spice


An authentic Za’atar Spice Recipe, a Middle Eastern spice blend that can be used in a multitude of ways. Use this as a rub for chicken, beef, lamb or fish, sprinkle it over hummus, Labneh or baba ganoush!

Za’atar has been enjoyed for centuries on the other side of the world, yet it has gained popularity in the U.S. over the past five years or so. To be honest, I didn’t understand the fuss when I sampled a za’atar blend from Trader Joe’s several years ago. While za’atar can vary between Middle Eastern regions, the basic formula for this spice mixture is a blend of thyme, oregano, sesame seeds, sumac and sea salt. It’s herby, nutty, salty, savory, and slightly tangy thanks to sumac. It really encompasses what you would imagine a multi-dimensional Middle Eastern spice tastes like.
