Za'atar Zaatar Spice Blend

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Pesto lover

This is a very useful spice blend for Middle Eastern Dishes. I have also found it to be good on cooked pasta, mixed with some olive oil, toasted pine nuts and olives. Also good on a bagel with cream cheese and then za'atar sprinkled on top. Try it on bruschetta with chopped tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar mixed up and then sprinkle with the za'atar - delish!

This is very close to the recipe I use, which has a bit less sesame. Try it rubbed under the skin of a roasting chicken, it's great! Also good on pita, salads, hummus, and vegetable dishes.
