Ingredients: Toasted Sesame Seeds, Za’atar Herb, Sumac, Sea Salt, Citric Acid.
Description: Traditionally, the Za'atar (Zahtar) blend was made from a plant by the same name, but today most Za'atar blends are made from herbs like oregano, marjoram, and thyme--and don't actually contain any of the "real" Za'atar herb. You may have experienced or learned that Middle Eastern countries blend their own style of Za'atar mixtures – Lebanese, Jordanian, Egyptian, and Israeli. Our blend is Israeli style which is dominated by the pure Za'atar herb which has characteristics similar to oregano. We import this rare herb directly from an Israeli farmer near the Sea of Galilee, as it is always our intention to provide you with the freshest and most authentic taste possible. For breakfast, Israelis sprinkle Za'atar mixture on pita drizzled with olive oil or stir it into the yogurt cheese known as labane. Add the Za'atar blend to spinach turnovers and pita pizza, both making great dishes for lunch and a snack. For a savory supper, the mixture can be used as a dry rub for fish or chicken or added to marinades for grilled or roasted vegetables. Za'atar can even go festive in a party dip.
