Post: Za’atar

It can be bought, or – you can make your own


  1. 1 tablespoon dried thyme or oregano
  2. 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  3. 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  4. 1 tablespoon toasted  sesame seeds
  5. 1 tablespoon sumac
  6. ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  7. ¼ teaspoon or more aleppo chili flakes- optional


  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl. Store in an airtight container.
  2. For the most flavor, toast whole seeds ( cumin and coriander seeds) until fragrant, then grind.
  3. This will make the most flavorful zaatar. If you don’t have whole seeds, feel free to use ground spices.
