Zahtar, Za'atar or Zaatar is a highly versatile, herbal mix of spices including toasted sesame seeds, sumac and thyme. The spice mix is known as a gateway into Middle Eastern cuisine.
Zahtar has become a modern kitchen staple. The spice mix is used for roasting poultry, fish and vegetables. It can season eggs, grains and salads or flavour marinades, dips and dressings.
Throughout the Middle East, Zahtar is enjoyed with bread but Arabic regions use the spice mix differently. Some mix with oil and spread over flatbreads, while others add it to the dough and bake. 23g
