|1/2||cup||toasted sesame seeds|
|2||Tbsp.||ground sumac berries (find in spice stores and markets specializing in Middle Eastern cuisines)|
- Heat a small, dry skillet over medium heat. Add the sesame seeds to the skillet and toast for 5 minutes, or until lightly brown; allow the seeds to cool slightly.
- Add the toasted sesame seeds and spices to a small coffee or spice grinder (or use a mortar and pestle) and grind until the sesame seeds are just broken, but not powdered. Store the za’atar in an airtight container for up to 6 months. This no-salt spice mixture is delicious on chicken, steamed vegetables, and hummus.
