Za-atar Spice Blend Recipe
Za-atar spice blend is a blend of oregano, sumac, toasted sesame seeds, and salt and is one of my favorite spice blends.
Za-atar Spice Blend
- 1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
- 1 scant Tablespoon dried oregano (Syrian or Turkish variety if you can find)
- 1 Tablespoon sumac
- 3/4 Tablespoon coarse sea salt
- Toast sesame seeds lightly in a dry skillet over medium heat, until they are fragrant and starting to turn golden. In a bowl, combine the still warm sesame seeds with the other ingredients. Store in a spice jar and use within three months.
