MIDDLE EASTERN ZA’ATAR SPICE BLEND
A staple in the Middle Eastern kitchen, zaatar is a spice mix used to flavor food.
Servings: 13 servings
- ¼ cup sesame seeds
- ¼ cup sumac
- 3 T ground thyme
- 1 T dried marjoram
- 1 T dried oregano
- ½ tsp sea salt
Toast sesame seeds in a pan until fragrant and their color starts to change, being careful not to burn them. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Once the sesame seeds have cooled off, mix with the other ingredients.
Add to a spice jar and store for up to three months. Using a funnel makes this task a little easier!
- Making Zaatar in smaller quantities is better than making large batches. If you do make a larger batch, store the extra spice blend in ziplock bags in the freezer until needed.
- Use Za'atar to season Roasted Pumpkin Seeds and seed crackers.
