    Default Zatar ideas?

    I have a crap load of this spice mixture..does anyone have any good ideas on how I can use this up(preferably in copious ways). I have done things like mix it with oils to put on bread, etc..but it is so strong of a flavor I seem to have hardly used up any of it. Any way to use it up faster? Thanks.

    OMG Zatar is the name of a middle eastern restaurant in Berzerkly. Love that place. They use zatar for stuffed 'shrooms. YUM.

    Damn I can just picture Soj dressing up as a sheikh and serving this to his favorite boytoy

    I put it in hummus.

    Brush pita with olive oil, sprinkle with zatar and toast.

    I sprinkle it on fattoush

    A Middle Eastern spice blend. I like it!! It contains sumac, thyme and some other things. I bought mine at Penzeys.

    I bet it's good sprinkled on kabob too!

    Would it be good on fried potatoes? (like pan fried in olive oil? I have a ton of potatoes as well to get rid of).

    That sounds good, Soj. Have you googled for recipes using zatar? I can imagine that they would mostly be middle eastern, Turks use it a lot, etc. I adore Turkish food. It's very fattening, though

    This sounds amazing

    you could try that with potatoes

    First I've heard of it, too. I know of a few others tho. Sounds good.

    Soj, almost anything tastes good on fried potatoes. I haven't eaten them in ages -- so not on the diet, sigh.

    One thing I've used is dukka, which a friend of mine actually markets in western Canada. Dukka (Egyptian Spice Blend) Recipe | Seasoning and Spice Recipes| Regional & Ethnic Recipes @ CDKitchen.com :: it's what's cooking online!

    It's especially good with meat or poultry.

    Last Christmas I made dukkah, put it in fancy jars, and gave it away in a gift basket along with small bottles of premium olive oil and homemade bread.

    It's fantastic sprinkled on roasted cauliflower.

    My recipe didn't have quite that many ingredients but there's different versions.

    I LOVE Zatar...I use it on sauteed veggies a lot, potatoes and sometimes in my homemade salad dressings.

    Sounds like sumac. My boyfriend uses something similar on rice (along with saffron) and on kebabs.

    I put it on noodles and mixed veggies, its a nice change from Italian seasonings. I don't know how to do anything authentic or fancy with it.

    Nigella Lawson has a recipe for Zatar Chicken ... basically chicken pieces that have olive oil drizzled over and lots of zatar sprinkled on and then is roasted in the oven. She served it with a pita salad that had tomatoes, cucumbers, and pieces of toasted pita bread. I think she might also have sprinkled some zatar in the that too.
