This soup was amazing and I love the addition of za'atar! Just wanted to add to your note about shopping for za'atar - quality of ingredients vary greatly and many companies include fillers and artificial ingredients in their za'atar (yuck!). If buying online, be sure to search for quality Za'atar, Za'atar with no fillings, pure Za'atar, or zaatar no salt. www.eatzaatar.com is my favorite source!
In general a good soup recipe. Serving size seems a little small. It's a better options for lunch in the cool fall months.
