Try this delicious Mediterranean take on traditional creamed pearl onions and peas!

Za’atar is a typical Middle Eastern spice mix. It consists of 2 parts thyme, 2 parts ground sumac, 1 part sesame seeds, & 1 part salt. You can certainly find it in specialty stores, but is very easy to make yourself. Sprinkle it on grilled meats, fish, & citrusy salads.
