Super quick Man'oushi (Zaatar sandwich)

Zaatar is one of my favourite spice or herb or condiment or whatever you wish to call it. Man'oushi pies (Zaatar pies) are a Lebanese specialty, whether for breakfeast or as an appetizer. But if you are craving one and pie crust or dough is not ready why not replace it with a slice of bread like I did!
All you have to do is mix it with olive oil and spread it on the sandwich and toast it for a bit and voila!
I also had one with cream cheese and just sprinkled some zaatar on top, mmmmmm!!!

P.S: This Zaatar mix can be found in Middle Eastern stores. It is mixed with sumac and sesame seeds.

I love zaatar bread. There was a bakery across the street from our last house with a brick oven that made zaatar bread and a lot of other middle eastern flatbreads with toppings. Your post has me missing that place.

Hey Maggie! Yeah I miss those bakeries too :( we don't have them in this part of Virginia, but I'm gonna post a recipe of the Zaatar Manou'shi baked in the oven this week :)

Yum! Can't wait to try this, so much easier than using dough.
I make something very similar, indian style. Its the same recipe, with bread, cream cheese, and cucumbers but I always used Chaat Masala instead of Zaa'tar. :) Thanks for sharing, great pic!

The Phoenicians

"Upon the Tsurian sea the people live
Who style themselves Phoenicians...
These were the first great founders of the world --
Founders of cities and of mighty states --
Who showed a path through seas before unknown.
In the first ages, when the sons of men
Knew not which way to turn them, they assigned
To each his first department; they bestowed
Of land a portion and of sea a lot,
And sent each wandering tribe far off to share
A different soil and climate. Hence arose
The great diversity, so plainly seen,
'Mid nations widely severed."

-- Dyonysius of Susiana, A.D. 3
