Homemade Zaatar Spice Mix

This is a traditional Middle Eastern blend of sesame seeds and various herbs and spices. It's very quick and easy to make and is often combined with olive oil and used as a dip or spread on bread.

Makes about 6-7 tbsp

3 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp sumac powder
1 tbsp coriander seeds
4 tsp dried thyme
4 tsp dried marjoram
2 tsp salt

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the salt, sesame and coriander seeds

  • Once ground, add to a bowl

  • Add the sumac powder to the bowl and combine

  • Finally, crumble in the dried herbs and combine again

That's all there is to it!

How to Toast and Grind

Dry toasting and grinding spices is the key to getting the most flavour out of your ingredients and into your home cooking...

Step 1: Add your whole spices to a dry pan over a low to medium heat and whilst stirring or shaking the pan, lightly toast them for a few minutes. When you can really smell the aromas and they start to darken, they're ready.

Step 2: Let them cool and then grind.

Step 3: For a finer blend, put them through a sieve before combining with any ground ingredients and herbs.
