Za'atar - Israeli

Middle East / House Blend
  • Double sized zaatar israeli 2

Za'atar is a time honored spice blend, and regional variations are beloved throughout the Middle East. This Israeli version is a simple mix of herbs, toasted sesame seeds and sumac. Try it as a sprinkle on vegetables, chicken or fish or simply mix with good olive oil to form a paste, spread on a pita, and toast until crisp. You can almost picture the street vendors in a bustling bazaar selling this time honored treat.

Great added to buttermilk biscuits. Either add to dry ingredients, or fold a handful in when you're folding/handling the dough on the board before cutting them. Delicious!
