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.




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


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.

Ha ha, thanks!


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 😀
