Hoosier Hill Bakers Bags, Bulk Sizes (Zahtar Spice / 6 lbs)
A favorite throughout the Middle East and North Africa, Zahtar, or Za'atar, is an intriguing mixture of herbs and spices prized for its distinctive zesty, herbal flavor. The sumac gives Zahtar its character sweet but tart taste, the thyme and oregano add warmth and depth and the toasted sesame seeds give the blend a rich earthiness.
This herbal, sweet and salty exotic blend can be found in recipes from Lebanon, Syria, Turkey and Iran. Zahtar is traditionally mixed with olive oil to create a savory spread for flatbread or pitas, but can also be added to marinades, salad dressings, yogurt and hummus. Mixed with mayo, cream cheese or olive oil, Zahtar Spice makes a vibrant sandwich spread.
Its unique flavor is an intriguing complement to grilled, roasted or stewed chicken, lamb, fish, vegetables and potatoes.
