This was the maiden voyage for za’atar spice on my blog. It was the first recipe I posted using Za’atar and I never looked back!
You can roast the nuts and add the za’atar + lemon combination. Store it in a glass bottle and enjoy it for days after that.
I don’t have a favorite za’atar recipe because I love them all in different ways!
These energy bites are #1 on my best za’atar recipes list because I make them almost every week. So, I could say that they are my favorite!
These energy bites are super easy to make. Just add a few ingredients and less than 10 minutes. Coat them with your favorite coating and you have a delicious, healthy snack
This is a brand new recipe that I posted yesterday. Its going to be put into a dessert(ish?) recipe coming soon. This vinaigrette is my new favorite homemade salad dressing
Mint and za’atar together are the best aromatic combination, I have discovered. When I open the cruet, a heavenly, exotic, delicious aroma comes out of it. I thinking of making it into a home fragrance recipe too.
This vinaigrette is not made just for salads. You can put it into almost any recipes. From desserts, to pasta, to marinade and so many other recipes. I think the sky is the limit on how you can use this mint vinaigrette.
In what recipe do you plan to use this vinaigrette
Tabouli with za’atar is even better than you can imagine. Za’atar seeps into all the ingredients in the tabouli and enhances their flavor
Its the most colorful recipe on this za’atar recipes list and definitely irresistible.
This tabouli can be great by itself,. but, I put it into a pita bread and yumza! It was so delicious and perfect for a light, healthy lunch.
You can even adjust this recipe by using the mint vinaigrette for the dressing because it makes the tabouli taste 100x better
This summer fruit salad uses my mint za’atar salad dressing which really brings out the flavors of the fruits!
Mint + Za’atar + Quinoa + Fruits = Summer Perfection!
Am I right?
Last on this best za’atar list is a Turkish staple.
Have you tasted muhammara before? Its one of my favorite Middle Eastern appetizers which I made with pomegranate and za’atar
The recipe has roasted bell pepper, pomegranate, olives and spices in it. Za’atar makes this recipe taste amazing, especially if you let the muhammara sit for about a day.
This muhammara works great as a dip or a spread. I put it into a pita with spinach and ate it as a light lunch recipe.
