Creamy homemade hummus topped with olive oil and Za’atar seasoning. This Za’atar Hummus is easy to make and the perfect dip for homemade crackers or veggie sticks!
Za’atar is a traditional herb and spice blend of the Eastern Mediterranean cuisine. It’s a mix of dried sumac berries, marjoram, thyme, basil, oregano, white sesame seeds, and Himalayan pink salt. There are a few different za’atar spice mixes out there, but basically, these are the usual ingredients. You can find Za’atar in most supermarkets in the spice section or order it online.
How to make Za’atar Hummus
- chickpeas (I used canned ones, you can also use dried ones and cook them yourself)
- lemon juice
- olive oil
For my base hummus, you’ll only need 4 ingredients but it’s flavorful and delicious! Whenever I bring this hummus to potlucks, people are asking for the recipe! It’s a real crowd-pleaser.
The Basic Steps
- Add the ingredients for the hummus in a blender (or food processor) and blend until smooth.
- Add toppings!
It’s easy as that!
How to store hummus
You can keep the hummus in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. Although I would recommend adding the oil and za’atar seasoning shortly before serving.
Serve the Hummus with …
- homemade crackers (for the colorful party platter, I’ve made spinach & sesame crackers, pizza crackers, and poppy seed crackers)
- raw veggies like carrot sticks
- za’atar breadsticks
- corn tortilla chips
- bread chips
- spread it on bread slices
- use it in wraps or burgers as a sauce alternative
