Everybody loves hummus. That tangy smooth concoction that exists in almost any grocery store in America. Hummus is very procurable and liking it no longer makes you exotic or cultured (unless, of course, you don't like it then you're just the opposite). I'm obsessed with hummus and I feel like I'm pretty good at making it. The only problem is that I make it so flavorful that you enjoy it for one meal and have zero desire to finish the leftovers. I decided I needed to find a plain recipe that was tasty but not so overpowering that you need to brush your teeth 6 times! So, like many people, I went to google. I found a recipes titled Better Then Store Bought Hummus. In my opinion store-bought hummus isn't that good but I figured it was worth a shot! I've made it 3 times in the last 6 days. Does that answer your question? Simple hummus FTW!
Za'atar is the name of a condiment made from several dried Middle Eastern herbs that include oregano, thyme, and marjoram mixed with sesame seeds, dried sumac (a NON-poisonous red berry that is dried and ground and gives a tart lemony flavor to foods), and often salt, as well as other spices. The exact recipe really depends on which region of the Middle East you are currently in. I was given some as a gift but you can find it in your local middle eastern shop or the international section of a large grocery store.
