Syrian Za'atar

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.



about 5 tablespoons


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


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.
