This za'atar spice recipe is easy to make at home from scratch with just four ingredients. While in Lebanon wild thyme is used, regular thyme from the supermarket or your garden makes a fine substitute. Za'atar refers both to the thyme plant itself, as well as this spice mix.
Za'atar spice mix can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
For a simple and delicious way to use za'atar, sprinkle the spice mixture over a plate of labneh and drizzle with olive oil. Serve with pita bread as a dip.
