Zahter / Za'atar is a common spice blend in Middle Eastern cuisine, using mainly thyme, sesame seeds and somaq. It is widely eaten wth pitta, which is dipped in olive oil and then Zahter.
This mixture, spread on a dough base and baked as a bread, produces manakeesh bi zaatar. Zahter is used as a seasoning for meats and vegetables or sprinkled onto hummus.
For breakfast it accompanies Labneh (yogurt drained to make a tangy, creamy cheese), bread and olive oil.
Or try rolling dry-cured balls of Labneh in Zahter when making the Labanese speciality Shanklish.
