It’s nearly impossible not to gobble up popcorn by the handful, and this Middle Eastern-inspired variation is certainly no exception. You can tell your friends it’s made with homemade “za’atar infused oil,” when all you have to do is stir za’atar into coconut oil. The spice blend gives the popcorn a complex, buttery flavor, especially when finished with a sprinkling of salt. While we call for refined coconut oil, feel free to use unrefined or virgin, which will give the popcorn a more pronounced coconut flavor. You’ll find plenty of other uses for za’atar, too. Try it on roasted chickpeas or sprinkled onto freshly-made pitas.

Smoky Roasted Chickpeas
Chickpeas are one of the greatest ingredients on Earth, and here’s why: they’re soft enough to be pureed into hummus, but sturdy enough to crisp in a hot oven. Whether you soak and cook dried chickpeas or grab them from the can, be sure to dry them off thoroughly before tossing them in oil. This will ensure that the paprika clings to every part of each pea, making for a crunchy, spicy snack that guests will dive right into. These are best warm, so stick them in the oven right as the party is starting.

Herb Marinated Feta
Skip the part-skim feta when prepping this appetizer. For a rich and creamy result that can be spread atop crackers and bread, you’ll want to start with a block of full-fat feta. We’re particularly fond of the tangy Bulgarian variety, which is made from sheep’s milk and slices easily into cubes. Herbs de Provence, typically made up of marjoram, rosemary, thyme, and oregano, is a great spice blend to have on hand. While it works wonders in this feta, you can also use it to season chicken or create a rub for steak.
