Za'atar Spice

Middle Eastern Herb Blend

This herb and tangy flavored blend is perfect for dipping with olive oil and bread

Za’atar comes from the Arabic word for thyme. This tangy mixture combines dried thyme, sumac, sesame seeds, and other spices and herbs to create its distinctive flavor. Different countries throughout the Middle East have varying blends. Travelers to the Middle East can find Za’atar in everything: croissants, breakfast scrambled eggs, and even beer. 

Za’atar can be used in many dishes but is commonly eaten on its own with bread and oil, referred to as “ziet and za’atar.” Here, one first dips their flatbread into oil and then into the dried za’atar spice. It can also be used to flavor meat or chicken dishes or to flavor maneesh (a type of flatbread pizza cooked with za’atar and cheese).
