3 fresh turkey breasts, bone in, skin on
2tbsp handful of parsley
2 medium onions

3 tbsp ground sumac
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tbsp ZA-HA Zaatar Seasoning 
1 tsp ground allspice
6 garlic cloves, minced
½ cup fresh lemon juice
¼ cup pomegranate molasses
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
2 cups extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste


Add all marinade ingredients to a large bowl except for olive oil. Once combined, slowly drizzle in oil and whisk to emulsify, set aside.

Peel red onions and slice into half inch rounds. Place in the base of your roasting pan and place 3 turkey breasts on top. Pour over half of your marinade making sure to coat the skin.

Bake at 375F for 1 ½ hours or until internal temperature reads 165F.  Let rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. Slice and enjoy!

Serve this up with a fresh side-salad and enjoy the second (unused) half of the marinade as a delicious and unique salad dressing!

Serve with a few tablespoons of ZA-HA Zaatar Spread as a condiment for the turkey and you have a Thanksgiving dinner that your guests will be talking about all year long!
