Zesty Za’atar

The Daphnis and Chloe Za’atar

Za’atar -the most emblematic Lebanese spice blend- is never really made in the same way. Interestingly, each family preserves its own recipe with a unique twist.

After experimenting with various alternatives, we got to create Daphnis and Chloe za’atar version that contains two of our herbs.

Tip: Your homemade Za’atar will be much richer in flavor if you make it right before use – quality herbs start losing their flavor soon after being grinded, as their essential oils evaporate. If you are planning to make a large batch, store your blend in an airtight jar.

Ingredients:

3 tsp thyme flowers, freshly grounded

2 tsp sumac

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp sesame seeds, preferably freshly toasted

1 marjoram

Procedure:

Blend the thyme flowers, sumac, salt,

sesame seeds and marjoram in a spice grinder

and mill them until you get a fine powder.

Can be enjoyed with olive oil and bread, or sprinkle over hummus and serve with warm pita bread as a healthy dip/appetizer for any kind of meal.
