Za'atar spiced Mushrooms spiked with smoked cayenne pepper is one of those most quick appetisers from Arabic Cuisine that you can make in just 10 minutes. So that makes it ideal for the times when some guests decide to drop in with out notice, A party or simply when you want to unwind with your loved ones at home on a weeknight or even weekend.
After coming back from Dubai, I realised that even though I love middle eastern cuisine so much and cook it very often at home, there are not many Arabic recipes on the blog. SO, I decided to make amends and now going to post few of my favorites and easy recipes from Middle Eastern Cuisine or Arabic Cuisine.
All you need is 10 minutes from start to finish. Tossed sliced mushrooms in rosemary flavoured extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkled Za'atar in generous quantity and finished with sprinkle of cayenne pepper and good squeeze of lime. Serve piping hot may be with side of fresh pita bread ... Yumm !
I used mushrooms if you don't like it you can use any veggie/chicken/paneer/tofu here and change cooking time accordingly.
At the time of serving somehow I felt that olives will go wonderfully with these. So, I tossed in few green olives along with some extra Virgin Olive oil and those squeezed in Mediterranean lemons I got from market in Dubai. It was totally out of the world.
Serve these Za'atar spiced mushrooms for your next party and see them disappearing batch after batch because these are addictively good ... Mmmm !
