Za’atar is the most beloved spice mix in Palestine. Za’atar is traditionally eaten for breakfast with olive oil and fresh whole grain ﬂat bread. Canaan Women’s Cooperatives make Za’atar according to tradition with freshly harvested and dried oregano, roasted sesame seeds, and sumac.
The fresh aroma of oregano, acidity of sumac, and nutty ﬂavor from sesame add up to a winning combination of texture and ﬂavor. Za’atar pairs perfectly with olive oil as a delicious marinade for meat or zesty seasoning on vegetables that springs to life with ﬂavor. Sprinkle it on cream cheese, yogurt or toasted bread for the perfect accent.
