Za’atar Spice Blend is a popular spice mix in Arabic and Middle Eastern cuisine. The particular blends were carefully guarded family secrets, and like most spice blends our Zaatar Spice Mix can be enjoyed as a flavorful spice by itself, or as a base to be enhanced according to personal tastes.
It is a dark olive green to grey spice mix with cream colored seeds interspersed throughout. Common spices in the blend include marjoram, thyme, oregano, savory, toasted sesame seeds, dried sumac, and salt. Za’atar Spice has a pleasing flavor balance of citrusy, earthy and woodsy notes with subtle warm caramel hints from the toasted sesame seeds. It is similar to the more commonly used Italian Spice seasoning blend.
Popular ways to enjoy this spice include with olive oil and pita bread, sprinkled over hummus or labneh (a fresh creamy cheese), as a seasoning for meats and vegetables, and blended into rice pilaf or meatballs.
Like most spice blends, Za atar Arabic Spices should be stored in a cool dark place in an airtight container. Za’atar will loose its potent flavors quickly, so should be enjoyed within six months of purchase.
