One of my favorite ways to use my Zaatar herbs from my garden is by making fresh Zaatar Salad.
A recipe that is so simple, but so tasty and healthy:
- 1-2 Bunches of Zaatar Herbs (Thymbra Spicata, Summer Savory, etc.)
- 1 Lemon, Juiced
- 1 tsp. sumac
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp Vinegar (Apple Cider is my favorite)
- Pinch of Salt
- 1-2 Chopped Onions
- 1 Bunch of Parsley (Optional)
One of my favorite ways to make Labneh for breakfast.
Start by spreading labneh onto a plate and then adding a spoonful of pepper paste.
Mix the pepper paste with the labneh.
Chop olives (preferably salty, pickled olives) and mix with labneh.
Add spices/seasonings (Wild Zaatar, Mint & Sumac).
Add Olive Oil.
Add fresh cut tomatoes.
My Grandmother and I use to make our own version of Lebanese Zaatar Pizza. It is a healthy and quick meal to make for the whole family.
That is why Lebanese Zaatar Pizza with Ham is one of my favorites.
Using fresh Zaatar, Wild Thyme, herbs is ideal, but if you do not have Wild Thyme, using Oregano is fine.
Start off by spreading pizza sauce on flat pizza dough. Much like my son, don’t be afraid to spread the pizza sauce to the edge of the pizza dough.
Add a spoonful of Mild Pepper Paste to your pizza sauce. Ensure that it is spread evenly.
Add a spoonful of freshly prepared Zaatar Mix.
Retrieve fresh picked Zaatar (Wild Thyme) or Oregano from your garden.
Chop or Crush the fresh Zaatar to your pizza sauce.
Add thin sliced smoked ham, layer the slices multiple times.
Add thin cut mushrooms and a layer of shredded cheese.
Add chopped black olives and red and green bell peppers. Once again, add a thin layer of shredded cheese to top off pizza.
Pre-heat oven for 450 degrees F and then cook pizza for about 10 to 15 minutes depending on the thickness of the pizza dough.
