I love za’atar – I put it with absolutely anything: in omelettes, on chicken, on figs(!). Really, really yummy. So, yes, today it was on baked chicken, which we had with purple potatoes (YUM – may be a new favourite potato development!), baba ghanoush, char-grilled peppers, and…spinach and carrots. How…fitting? Not.
Anyway, it’s really easy to make your own za’atar mix – I used equal amounts of oregano, marjoram, sesame seeds, sumac and thyme. Play around with the proportions, and add a little salt if you wish until it suits your tastes.
