Has anyone ever made zaatar?
When I was in California a few years ago I ate at a Mediterranean resteraunt that had this stuff called zaatar, it's sauce/dip that you use with pita bread. I researched online how to make it myself, and when I tried, it tasted awful and nothing like the stuff from the resteraunt. I recently found a bag of premixed zaatar that you just add olive oil to, I tried that and again was disappointed. I know the basic ingredients (olive oil, sesame seeds, sumac, & thyme) but this just tastes nothing like the kind the resteraunt had, so I'm thinking there is something else you can put in it to make it good. Does anyone in here know a good way to make it?
By the way, if anyone lives in California, the resteraunt I am talking about is in Venice Beach, it's called Gaby's. Does anyone by any chance know what they put in it to make it so good?
