It calls for Za'atar. Wiki gives some ideas of the herbs used in it.
I think I have alot of the stuff needed to make it @ home
Posted 29 January 2012 - 09:47 AM
1 tablespoon roasted sesame seeds
1/4 cup sumac
2 tablespoons thyme
2 tablespoons marjoram
2 tablespoons oregano
1 teaspoon coarse salt
Grind the sesame seeds in a food processor or with a mortar and pestle. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

The word za'tar in Arabic refers to thyme as well as the mix, so guess what the dominant ingredient is? Yep.
Also, sesame seeds are always left whole. I would say 1/4 cup thyme and WAY less sumac, like maybe a tablespoon? I dunno, I always buy it re-mixed.
Paul, where do you live? Any vaguely Middle Eastern-themed store should have Za'tar.

I was actually thinking I had all the herbs, until Sumac came into the equation . So, I'm going looking for it this weekend, I think I know a store.
