Middle Eastern Flatbreads

Za’atar, our main product, is a blend of herbs at the center of every shared meal in the Middle East. In addition to za’atar, we handcraft labneh, a strained yogurt, that no breakfast is complete without. In the Middle East, the man’oushe is ubiquitous — a flatbread best served fresh from the corner bakery’s oven and eaten on the go.

It’s typically slathered in zaatar, a herb mix with oregano, thyme, sesame seeds, and sumac. It’s also often made with labneh, a creamy and tangy yogurt. Both are sold as packaged goods and used to top our homemade flatbreads in delicious combinations that incorporate fresh takes on old classics using fresh and locally sourced ingredients.

Za’atar

Za’atar is a versatile every day blend of herbs and spices that can be used as a dip with olive oil, a rub on proteins, or sprinkled on eggs and veggies as a seasoning. 

A mix of dried thyme, oregano, sumac, and toasted sesame seeds gives za’atar a delicious and unique flavor that is aromatic and tangy at the same time. Za’atar is a culinary staple in the middle east and has a long and rich history dating as early as the 12th century.

Health Benefits

“As for za’atar’s reputation as health food, that goes way back, too. In the 12th century, the great Spanish Jewish philosopher Maimonides is said to have prescribed it to his patients to treat a variety of ailments. Recent research confirms that za’atar herbs do in fact boast significant health-enhancing properties, since sumac, thyme, and oregano are all chock full of flavonoids, organic compounds that are important dietary sources of antioxidants that can protect cells from damage.”
