Spicy Za'atar - All Purpose Moroccan Seasoning

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 0 mins

This is a spicy version of za'atar from Northern Africa. It is great for sprinkling over tagines, vegetables, and pita sandwiches. It looks a bit different from the za'atar that I usually use (Middle Eastern and Mediterranean types), which is heavier with thyme. From the Flavors of Africa Cookbook, by Dave DeWitt (Chile pepper aficionado extraordinaire). Posted for ZWT4.


  1. Blend and store in an airtight container.16.
