Why we Love this Recipe
Za’atar spice blends are an amazingly flavourful Middle Eastern spice mix. Za’atar is traditionally used in dry rubs for meats and to season vegetables.
It is a fragrant seasoning that is herby, nutty and an earthy flavour.
There are only 6 ingredients in my za’atar spice recipe. Sumac, marjoram, salt flakes, oregano, sesame seeds, and thyme.
Sumac is a Middle Eastern spice that is not spicy but lemony. You will find it in the spice section of most supermarkets as well as all the other ingredients.
HOT TIP – Make sure all your dried ingredients are fresh and not out of date.
WHERE TO BUY – If you would prefer to buy za’atar than make your own try then try here.
How to Make Za’atar Seasoning at Home
To make your own za’atar spices at home all you need to do is mix all the ingredients together.
For a delicious nuttier flavour, firstly toast the sesame seeds before adding to the mix.
How to Use Za’atar Seasoning
I like to use mine on roast pumpkin, broccoli or cauliflower. It is a great seasoning and flavouring for keto recipes as it only adds a small amount of carbs.
Drizzle avocados with a little avocado oil and sprinkle with za’atar.
