How to make it

  • Roast the sesame seeds and give them a bit of a grind with a motar and pestle. A coffee grinder is also good for this.
  • Then mix in all the other stuff
  • Store it in a well sealed container.
  • Can be used in marinades, as a rub on all types of meat, great as a sprinkle on meats before roasting also vegetables.
  • Also beats buying the inferior commercial versions.
  • .
  • Zatar is mostly used with breads and according to me, the best of all uses for zatar is: mix a couple of tablespoons with sufficient olive oil to make a runny paste.
  • Spread it on some flat bread and grill until lightly browned.
  • You will need to put a second one under the griller as soon as you removed the first. You will be requiring seconds after eating the first while it's hot
  • .
  • A friend from the middle east introduced zatar to me. He explained that this recipe varies from region to region. So, be prepared to adjust to suit your own tastes.

    I agree with you Trev...I would love to spread this on some bread! Maybe some homemade Naan bread! Is there something I can use as a sub for sumac? I don't know if I'll be able to find that spice.

    A favorite Armenian restaurant (Pizzaria/Bakery) serves a Zatar pizza. Looking forward to giving this a try. Thanks for sharing :)
