Za’atar Yogurt Dip with Pine Nuts & Pomegranate
Served with Za’atar Manaqish

Doubling up on the Za’atar today because I just love the stuff! This 10 minute SUPER easy dip is simply a bowl of heaped yogurt with loads of Za’atar spice, salt, toasted pine nuts, fresh parsley, fresh mint and pomegranate seeds.  It literally takes minutes to prepare and is bursting with flavour.  I made some Za’atar Manaqish to go with it but you could just serve it with toasted pita bread, pita chips or whatever takes your fancy really.


Za’atar is a Middle Eastern spice blend which I would describe as earthy, nutty, tangy and savoury all in one.  It contains a combination of dried oregano, thyme, marjoram, salt, sumac and toasted sesame seeds and sometimes contains dried orange zest, dried dill, or the wild herb za'atar. I made the fluffy Za’atar Manaqish using Suzy’s incredible recipe from The Mediterranean Dish @themediterraneandish which you can find online, just Google it.


METHOD

  1. Add Greek yogurt to a deep plate, set aside
  2. Mix salt, pine nuts, parsley, mint za’atar and olive oil in a bowl until it forms a runny paste
  3. Spoon the paste over the yogurt, add more olive oil if you like and sprinkle the pomegranate seeds on top
  4. Serve with manaqish (as pictured), pita bread, pita chips or whatever takes your fancy!
