What is Za’atar?

Za’atar [ZAH-tahr] is a Middle Eastern spice blend that contains a variety of dried herbs, sesame seeds, and sumac.


Preheat oven to 400°. Coat two baking sheets with nonstick spray.

Combine 3 Tbsp. oil, 4 tsp. za’atar, and garlic; spread on eggplant slices. Arrange slices on prepared baking sheets in a single layer and roast until tender, 15 minutes, flipping halfway through. Wrap pitas in foil; transfer to oven to heat through, 10 minutes.

Whisk together lemon juice, remaining 1 Tbsp. oil, and remaining ½ tsp. za’atar for the vinaigrette; season with salt and pepper.

Spread 2 Tbsp. hummus on each pita. Top pitas with eggplant slices, tomatoes, and romaine; drizzle with vinaigrette.
