Lebanese Za’atar



Lebanese Za’atar

Za’atar is a Middle Eastern spice blend, varying greatly from country to country. Our Lebanese Za’atar is a more full flavored blend than many out there.  Being our own house-crafted blend, we made sure the flavor was authentic and the taste you’ll want again and again.

Za’atar is Arabic, referring to the Thyme plant, with references going back to Ancient Egypt. Thus, Thyme should be the prevailing spice in the blend. A variation of modern Za’atar was even found in the tomb of Tutankhamen.

Our blend, where Thyme and Sumac are dominant, is a mixture where all the spices impart a wonderful, exotic flavor however you use it.

One traditional use of Za’atar is to put some on a plate with Olive Oil and dip Pita bread into it, much as you do with other bread dipping oil & spice combinations. The other traditional use is to lightly brush pita, or other bread with Olive Oil, then generously sprinkle with the Za’atar. Place under a broiler until it starts to bubble and lightly brown, watching closely so it doesn’t burn.

Za’atar is widely used on Hummus, sprinkled on Labneh, a yogurt cheese, and as a coating for cured Labneh balls. It can also be used as an ingredient in falafels, sprinkled on baked potatoes, other roasted vegetables and in other Middle East recipes.

We have several recipes which use our Labenese Za’atar.  The flavor it adds is wonderful.  Take a look at our Roasted Za’atar Chicken with Potatoes, Smashed Za’atar PotatoesZa’atar Chicken and Herbed Za’atar Pita Bread.

If you enjoy North African, Moroccan and Middle East blends, besides Lebanese Za’atar, you should also try our Ethiopian Berbere Seasoning, and Harissa Spice blends.

We also have a good selection of other Curry Spices, created and small-batch blended from our own recipes. Because of the complexity of curries, we are especially pleased not just at the results, but also from the loyal following they have all found with our customers.  Please try our Madras Curry, Maharajah Curry, Garam Masala, Colombo Powder, Tandoori Spice, Vadouvan CurryRed Thai Curry and Green Thai Curry Blends.

Contains: Thyme, Sumac, Sesame Seeds, Marjoram, Anise, Cinnamon, Sea Salt & Spices.
