"This dish is packed with flavour from the za’atar mix – a popular Middle Eastern herb mix mainly made up of finely crushed dried thyme, sumac and sesame seeds. I grew up in the Middle East and so this spice mixture is really close to my heart." Recipe created for Seasonal Spuds, by Nadia Al-Khaffaf at Nadia's Healthy Kitchen.
