Zaa’tar

spices

I love to cook dishes that fill the house with full bodied smells. One of our recipes called for Zaa’tar but I couldn’t find it anywhere. Za’atar is a Middle Eastern spice blend that is so versatile. It can be used on meats, veggies, rice, and breads.

You probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry already to make this. Just be sure to store it in an airtight container.

1/4 cup sumac
2 tablespoons thyme
1 tablespoon roasted sesame seeds
2 tablespoons marjoram
2 tablespoons oregano
1 teaspoon coarse salt

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.

  1. […] These carrots are easy to make and full of flavour. I had a hard time finding zaa’tar (a blend of Middle Eastern herbs) but was able to make my own as an acceptable substitution. Get that recipe HERE. […]
