Day 40: Za’atar Manaqish

Za’atar Manaqish is a great dish as an appetizer, snack or even brunch! It's a Lebanese flatbread with za'atar spice to top it off. Make sure you eat this with yogurt, because since the za'atar is so spicy you need something to balance it out.



RECIPE:


INGREDIENTS:

Dough

1 cup lukewarm water

1/2 teaspoon sugar

2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (one package active dry yeast)

3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, more for dusting

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Za’atar Topping

8 tablespoons quality Za'atar spice

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil


STEPS:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.


In a small bowl add water, sugar, and yeast and sit for around 8 minutes.


Mix flour, salt, and olive oil and make a well. Add the yeast mixture in. Knead for 5 minutes and let proof for an hour.


Mix together the za'atar spice and oil.


Cut into 8 small balls and roll out into a circle, 5 inches in diameter. Place on a greased baking sheet and top with a tablespoon of the za'atar topping, bake for 10 minutes.


Enjoy!

So great to see the Za’atar Manaqish, Maya :) In our family Za’atar is a ”life savior”. Kids can’t go a day without Za’atar sandwiches. My husband is from Lebanon, so it explains why 😀
