Experience the flavors of the Middle East with this classic Levantine spice blend. Za’atar combines the tangy, zesty flavor of sumac & coriander with familiar dried herbs like oregano and thyme. Sesame seeds and Rumi's signature black cumin add a final layer of nuttiness to this flavor-packed blend.
Za’atar is especially versatile and can be used as a finishing spice as well as added throughout the cooking process. The vibrant core herbs and spices that make up this blend, like oregano, thyme, cumin, and coriander, add welcomed vibrancy to chicken and fish dishes. The sumac and sesame seeds add brightness and a nutty crunch, making za'atar just as enjoyable when sprinkled on top of fresh-baked bread or mixed with olive oil for an easy dip.
