Spice it up: Za’atar is a Middle Eastern spice blend, adding a unique, citrusy-herbal flavor to dishes. You can find it in specialty supermarkets, online stores (Farro, Pepper&Me, SpiceNEasy), your local spice shop, the international section of your local supermarket, or health food stores. If you’re at a pinch, try using a blend of dried thyme, oregano, and a pinch of sesame seeds in its place.
