Za’atar is a traditional collection of spices culinarily used in Middle Eastern countries. This versatile seasoning can be used in dips and as a seasoning for meat and breads. It has an aromatic smell and a fresh, slightly bitter flavor.
How to Cook with Za’atar
Za’atar is most commonly eaten with fresh pita bread via a process of dipping the bread in olive oil and then dry za’atar. The spice mixture can also be baked directly onto flatbreads or crackers to serve as a flavorful vehicle for dips and spreads. Za’atar is used to season flanks of meat such as lamb or beef and can also be sprinkled atop homemade or store-bought hummus. Zaatar can be incorporated into a simple salad dressing with olive oil, lemon juice and some sea salt.
Also known as zatar, zahatar, satar, or zatr.

Wonderful spice mix, we use it on Sourdough ‘pancakes’ with green onions.Catherine, Sandpoint, ID
Good flavor, just needed some salt!Sheri, Fairview, NC
This is my second bag of Zatar from Nuts.com. I still have a little less than 1/2 a bag from my first purchase, but, had to order another in case it becomes hard to get. I use this herb and sesame seed blend on roast chicken, fish or lamb chops. My husband was never a huge fan of roast chicken, now he can hardly get enough!!! This should be on every cooks shopping list.Christine, Greenville, SC
