Add a little Za’atar


Za’atar  – my favorite explanation of Za’atar comes from Saad Fayed on About.com, “Za’atar to Middle Eastern cooking is like what Essence is to Emeril. Za’atar is a spice blend that is so versatile! It can be used on meats, veggies, rice, and breads. And, yes, it has been known to make me yell “Bam!” every once in a while.”

What is in Za’atar varies based on country, region and family.  But, typically it contains oregano, thyme, sumac, sesame seeds, marjoram and salt. And, as Saad said, it can make you say “Bam!”

I have shared posts using Za’atar previously…

  1. I have some but don’t think to use it very often.

  2. I also often forget it is there. I worked on this as a way to remind myself 🙂
