I’ve been obsessed with za’atar since the fabulously fresh stuff I found at the Carmel Market in Tel Aviv. I love the earthiness of the blend. And I’ve been obsessed with cauliflower and za’atar ever since the amazing dish a had at Newport‘s La Vasca. So I put together this simple recipe. I hope you like it too.
