Middle Eastern Spiced Seeds

DecorationExtrasNibblesParty Planning

I adore this simple recipe. I use the seeds on top of salads, in wraps, on soup and many more ways. They are delicious as a little snack on their own too, try a bowl of them at your Christmas Drinks party. I hope you fall in love with them as much as I have.

  1. Heat the Oil over a medium flame, with the Cumin and Za’atar in a pan.
