Back when I was blogging constantly, I was hearing this recurring background noise “you’ve got to be on Facebook, or Twitter”. I am now posting daily on Facebook and Instagram (several times a day) and have barely time to blog anymore!
No more whining. This is an all-traditional Lebanese breakfast and my favorite. It even turns into dinner or lunch at times, when time is of the essence. All you need is labneh, the best olive oil and the best zaatar. A nice juicy tomato and a fresh loaf of markouk (aka lavash in the US).
I have been in the mountains, enjoying some peace, clean air, beautiful scenery and this meal day in and day out. Making labneh is easy, I have directions for you in my cookbook and on this blog as well. You can also find it in Middle-Eastern groceries ready-made, with zaatar and the bread.
The zaatar in the photo is one I get in Lebanon and it is unfortunately not yet distributed in the US. It is a whole-leaf zaatar with pine seeds in it, and a specialty of the Shouf mountains.
Sahtein to all!
