If you can’t find zaatar spice mix at your local grocery store, make your own at home. Za’atar’s Spice Blend is a flavorful Middle Eastern spice blend that we use in a variety of ways. We use it in our various salad dressings , in marinades for tofu or tempeh, sprinkle generously over bread ( Manakeesh ) and add it to recipes like whole baked cauliflower to pack in amazing flavor. „Zatar“ is the Arabic word for the wild thyme used as the main ingredient in this recipe. Here’s a simple yet authentic Lebanese recipe for this aromatic, earthy, and surprising condiment.

While you can buy zaatar powder in stores , I have to mention that I haven’t found one that tastes as good as our homemade one. But why keep looking for ready-made mixes when it’s so easy to make your own zaatar. Zaatar powder varies by region – here’s a Lebanese zaatar recipe that includes thyme, coriander seeds, cumin, sumac, sesame seeds and salt. Other versions may include other dried herbs like oregano, cilantro, etc., but this simple version is our favorite of the house. And you do not need a lot of spices, only one tasty ingredient is especially important – sumac. Sumac is something we use a lot in our cooking, and with its tangy, almost citrusy flavor, it’s the key to this zaatar spice blend.
