Alicia’s Mexican Za’atar

  • 1 Tbsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 Tsp Anise seed
  • 1 Tbsp Dried hibiscus flower (crushed)
  • 1 Tbsp Coriander seeds
  • 1 Tbsp Cumin seeds
  • 2 Tbsp Sesame seeds
  • 1 Tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp Lemon salt
  1. Toast the coriander and cumin seeds in a 300º for about 5-8 minutes. Toast sesame seeds separately. Grind the oregano, hibiscus flower, coriander, cumin, and anise seed until powdery. Add the salt, sesame seeds, and lemon salt. Store in an airtight container. 

This spice has a wonderful twist to the usual recipe for Za’atar. The flavor is different, see if you can guess why. Alicia’s Mexican Za’atar has a slight pink hue; a really fun plus.
