Read more about each spice here and see how I am infusing my menu (every single recipe, from beginning to end - including sweet treats and drinks!) with my new spice collection. Plus!!!! We put together 5 easy mishloach manot ideas with the new spices. 

Za'atar Salad Dressing

Za'atar Salad Dressing

Za'atar can be used in so many ways from sprinkling on hummus to coating a whole chicken, but to start our meal we are going with a simple salad dressed with za'atar salad dressing.  

Oven Skewer Shawarma

Shawarma Skewer in Laffa-4

For the mains, we have an incredible new way to make shawarma at home to mimic the ways of Shawarma stands in Israel.  You can use chicken or turkey thighs and make sure to slice it off the "spit" in front of everyone. 

Simple Beef Ktzizot


Mix up some simple Israeli Ktzizot, mini burgers with the flavorful baharat seasoning. You will love these on their own or on the salad with a drizzle of tahini. 

Laffa with Za'atar

June Laffa

Buy some pita or make your own laffa with za'atar to serve with this incredible Israeli meal. 

Za'atar Hasselback Potatoes

Za'atar Back Potatoes

For the side, try these Hasselback potatoes with olive oil and za'atar.  If you're not in the mood to make all the small slices, you can simply roast cubes of potatoes and toss with za'atar. 

Roasted Cauliflower 3 Ways

Roasted Cauliflower 3 Ways

Pick one or choose all 3, this recipe shows you how delicious and easy roasted cauliflower is to make with any of your favorite spices.  When made and served side by side you get the benefit of the gorgeous tricolor effect. 

Cherry Apricot Crisp with Hawaij for Coffee

Apricot Cherry Crisp horizontal

For dessert, try a simple fruit crisp, this one is made with apricots and cherries, but any fruit will do, even simply apples.  The crumble topping gets infused with the flavors of hawaij for coffee and is simply divine. 

Hawaij for Coffee Hamantaschen

Hawaij for Coffee Hamantaschen

No seudah is complete without hamentaschen. The dough completes this Israeli menu by using hawaij for coffee, Turkish coffee and silan.
