Homemade Za'atar Mix

Homemade Za'atar Mix

Woke up inspired, so a nice brunch plank full of only goodnesses it is! Made manakish-the mini pizza looking thingy- (I made both the dough and the za’atar from scratch) added a bit of gruyere. Some chopped avocado, tomatoes and cucumber, some of my favourite olives...The Kalamata olives, fresh yogurt with dry mint and olive oil and some green onion for a little kick. Morning y'all!

The only real recipe here is going to be the za'atar mix. If you don't know what za'atar is, where have you been?... Okay, let me be nice, za'atar is a blend of savoury herbs, in dry form, commonly eaten in the Middle East on baked breads, or to flavour just about anything.

This recipe yields about of 150g. of spice mix (give or take)


25g. of dry oregano

25g. of dry marjoram or thyme

25g. cumin seeds

25g. coriander seeds

25g. sesame seeds

15g. salt

15g. sumac


  1. In a non-stick pan, toast for 5 minutes, the cumin, coriander and sesame seeds, let them cool. Then with a spice grinder (coffee grinder or even a sharp blender) grind the toasted seeds (except for the sesame seeds) into a powder.

  2. In a bowl add the rest of the ingredients and enjoy!


  1. Since your doing your own za'atar blend, you can tweak the quantities to each spice as to your liking, making it less coriander-y or as much cumin-y you want. Oregano and Thyme should always have the more quantity for that distinctive za'atar flavour.

  2. If you don't have a spice grinder or do not want the hassle, just get then the powder version of cumin and coriander.
