Please, please try this! It's delicious. I make it without the onions and put it in a small dish on its own next to another small dish with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. A Pile of fresh bread,(pitta bread, french bread anything you like)and dip a torn off piece of bread into the oil and then into the za'atar and eat! Swish it down with a cup of tea. Superb snack!
Tried this last night, I cooked rice, added olive oil and some of this and tumeric, it was good. DD says it tasted like the rice at Cafe Cedar, I favorite Middle Eastern restaurant.
This makes a wonderful authentic seasoning for Middle East cooking. Zaatar means simply thyme in Morocco as we have no spice blends. So, we use the same word for a very different meaning. I love to use this when making Lebanese dishes. Thank you Mirj!
Lovely spice blend. The sumak adds a nice lightly bitter/tangy flavor that is really unusual. I thought that the onions were a nice addition. I used organic herbs and sesame seeds and I'm glad to have a jar of organic za'atar gracing my spice rack. :) Thanks Mirj.
I forgot to review this from months ago. I used my own dried lemon thyme from the garden. Keeps well in frig in airtight container. Very unusual but so wonderful in your Spinach Feta Pie recipe! Thank you, Mirj. CG
