Syrian Zaatar

Syrian Zaatar


Za'atar is also known as Zaatar, Zahatar Za'tar and Zahatar. This seasoning is a delightful blend of dried herbs, sesame seeds, and sumac, and usually salt. The regional variations can be quite different.


Typically used as a table condiment (much like we would use pepper), Za'atar is sprinkled on dishes. In Lebanon it is believed to clear the mind and provide strength and is commonly used with breakfast dishes.


Za'atar is often stirred into olive oil and used as a dip or made into a paste for soft flatbreads and vegetables or applied to bread prior to baking.  Za'atar also works exceptionally well as a dry rub for chicken, lamb and seafood (especially fish) and partners well with cauliflower and potatoes.
