It’s the most famous Lebanese breakfast and the most delicious! It’s simply a pizza dough topped with some thyme and olive oil. Or you can top it with cheese or whatever comes to your mind! Yummy! This recipe makes small ones but you can roll it into big ones.
Preheat your oven to 450 F.
1. In a bowl, mix all of the topping ingredients: thyme, sumac, sesame seeds, olive oil and salt. If needed, add some water to get a medium fluid mixture. Set aside.
2. To prepare the dough, mix the flour and sugar in a large bowl. In a small bowl dissolve the yeast in the 1/4 cup warm water. Add this into the flour mixture. Add the vegetable oil and mix again. While kneading, gradually add the remaining 1 1/2 cups water until you get a well combined dough.
3. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and leave it to rest in a warm place for at least 1 hour.
4. After the dough has risen, knead it again, with some flour on your hands.
5. Divide the dough into 4 parts and roll each part on a lightly floured surface using a rolling pin.
6. Cut the dough into 10 cm diameter circles using a circular pastry cutter.
7. Top each circle with 1 tablespoon of the thyme mixture (or more if you like).
8. Slightly grease 2 oven trays with olive oil and place the manakeesh on them.
9. Bake for around 5-10 minutes or until the bottom of the dough turns lightly brown.
10. Serve warm or at room temperature.
This Low Fat Banana, Date & Nut Bread may be low on fat, but it’s not low on flavor! It’s perfect to enjoy with that morning tea or coffee. This recipe makes two loaves, one to eat now, and one to put in the freezer to enjoy later.
Better than Starbucks makes!
