This 3-ingredient recipe makes a great substitute for the tart, slightly bitter dried red spice traditionally used in Middle Eastern cooking.
Lemon zest by itself also works as a sub—or Za'atar (a Middle Eastern spice blend that contains Sumac) if you can find it at your grocery store.
- 1 lemon, zested (about 1 tablespoon zest)
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
Mix all ingredients.
