Global Ingredient: Za'atar
This seductive spice mix combines sumac, dried herbs, and toasted sesame seeds. In its native Middle East, it's used as much as common condiments like ketchup or hot sauce are in the States. The sumac lends a distinct citrusy note, while dried thyme and marjoram make it fragrantly herbaceous. Sprinkle on veggies, chicken, or fish before cooking, or stir into tzatziki or hummus.
