How To Make Za’atar Spice Blend

It’s nice to have a za’tar spice blend in your pantry as it adds extra flavors to many dishes. This blend has earthy, herbal, savory, and tangy flavors.

Preparation: 3 minutes
Cooking: 5 minutes
Total: 8 minutes



  • 2tbspdried oreganopreferably Greek or Turkish
  • 2tbspsumac
  • 2tbspSesame seeds
  • 1tbspdried marjoramor additional oregano
  • 1tbspdried thyme
  • 1tspfine sea salt


  1. Simply combine all of the ingredients in a bowl or jar, and stir to combine.

  2. For enhanced flavor, warm the spices together in a medium skillet over medium heat, until fragrant and the sesame seeds are starting to turn golden. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl to cool. (Skip this step if you will be baking your za’atar on pita bread, which essentially does the same thing.)

  3. Store za’atar in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 1 month.
