Za’atar is a Middle Eastern spice that has a reputation as a brain enhancer, according to cookbook author Rebecca Katz. It’s an aromatic blend of thyme, sesame seeds, sumac, oregano, and marjoram that adds an incredible depth to this dish. Add it to most anything for an exotic flare—vegetables, salads, fish. You name it.
