Tonight's supper - Grated hardboiled eggs, with a sprinkling of zaatar, some grated cheese, a smattering of green onions and red juicy tomatoes, topped with a drizzle of olive oil. Now if that doesn't make your mouth water. I used to despise eggs;this I adore. My friend's husband takes credit for this tasty dish. It was love at first sight and first bite. Presentation is simple but amazing. It is a layered dish that is eaten with Arabic pita bread. The magic ingredient is za'atar which can be found in Middle Eastern grocery stores. Also, here is a link to a recipe for za'atar from RecipeZaar member Evelyn/Athens: http://www.recipezaar.com/Zaatar-65710
- 4 hard-boiled eggs
- 1 dash salt
- 1 dash pepper
- 4 tablespoons za'atar spice mix
- 2 tablespoons mozzarella cheese
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 green onion, sliced
- 1 tomatoes, diced
- Grate hard boiled eggs on dinner plate.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Sprinkle za'atar on top.
- Grate cheese on top.
- Drizzle with olive oil.
- Sprinkle sliced green onions on top.
- Arrange diced tomato around the dish.
- Serve with hot pita bread.
Good stuff! Very nice presentation as well. I made this using the listed za'atar recipe, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. I had to use a different type of cheese but I know mozzarella would be perfect with this. Served it with rice crackers to be gluten free. I would make this again.
