Syrian Za'atar Recipe

Syrian Za'atar Notes

My brother is the best cook in the family, and used to travel on business. After his supply of Za'atar (he got on his travels) ran out, I found this recipe and made some for him. He was highly complimentary, claiming it was better than what he had previously.


Serves / Yields

about 5 tablespoons

Preparation Instructions

Grind all ingredients in a blender, mortar and pestle, spice mill, or clean coffee grinder until powdered.

Helpful Hints

Use this blend to dust meat before cooking, season oil and vinegar dressed salads, or in any middle-eastern style cooking.

The Spice House also offers their own pre-made version of Za'atar.
