Za'atar Spice

Za'atar Spice

This nutty, earthy blend of dried herbs and spices is a versatile
seasoning for hummus, labneh, cheeses, meats, and fish. The recipes are from Science of Spice by Dr. Stuart Farrimond. I would highly recommend reading the book.


  • 2 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp sumac

How to make

  1. Dry-roast the cumin seeds in a frying pan on low heat until fragrant
  2. Grind with sea salt
  3. Dry-rosat the sesame seeds until golden
  4. Stir into the mixture with the oregano and sumac
