Za’ataar is a spice blend made with smoked herbs and sesame seeds. There a tons of store bought options available but nothing will give you the same intense smokey flavour like making your own. The only requirement here is you guessed it, a smoker.

1 bunch fresh parsley

1 bunch fresh mint

1 bunch fresh thyme

1 tbsp black sesame seeds

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp salt

Place your herbs on the smoker and let them smoke and dry for about 5-6 hours or just until the leaves are all completely dried. Pick the leaves of carefully and discard the stems. Use a mortar and pestle and grind all the ingredients together. Make sure there are no big pieces left in the mix and you are good to go. You didn’t hear this from us but this goes really well with popcorn.
