A seemingly simple medley of flavors, this zaatar avocado toast has been my go-to version of avocado toast for a while now! The juicy cherry tomatoes and tahini pair perfectly with the zaatar seasoning.
I believe that this zaatar avocado toast is the "millennial version" of a traditional Middle Eastern breakfast staple, consisting of bread dipped in olive oil and zaatar.
Ever since my first taste as a child, I fell in love with zaatar. One of my favorite breakfast, snack, and really anytime meals growing up consisted of warm bread dipped into olive oil and covered in the seasoning. As I got older and avocado toast became a "thing," I found that zaatar paired perfectly with the creamy, rich fruit. The tomatoes and tahini drizzle in this dish balance out the savory notes in zaatar.
For the creamiest and best tasting tahini sauce, it is important to use a super smooth, high quality tahini, like this Seeds of Collaboration tahini that is sourced in the Middle East and contributes to Middle East Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow! Check it out here.
