Manakeesh is a traditional Lebanese flatbread that is both delicious and satisfying. This mouthwatering dish is perfect for serving one person and is a popular choice for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
The process of making manakeesh starts with a dough made from scratch. The dough is then poked to create small holes, which helps the bread to cook evenly and creates a unique texture. Once the dough is ready, it is topped with a variety of traditional Lebanese toppings and spreads.
One of the most popular vegetarian manakeesh options is the combo. This delectable flatbread is divided into two halves, with one half topped with a secret akkawi cheese blend and the other half topped with zaatar. Zaatar is a traditional herb spread made from sesame, thyme, sumac, and oil. The combination of the creamy cheese and the aromatic zaatar creates a burst of flavors that is simply irresistible.
If you’re a meat lover, the lahmbajeen manakeesh is a must-try. This meaty flatbread is made from a mixture of ground meat, onions, peppers, garlic, and a blend of Lebanese spices. The flavorful meat mixture is spread generously on the homemade dough and then baked to perfection in our imported open-flame oven. The result is a savory and satisfying dish that will leave you craving for more.
Whether you choose the vegetarian combo or the meaty lahmbajeen, manakeesh is a versatile dish that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. It is perfect for a quick and filling breakfast, a satisfying lunch, or a delicious dinner. The combination of the freshly baked dough, the flavorful toppings, and the unique cooking method creates a dish that is truly special.
