This zaatar and jibneh wrap is one of the most popular Lebanese breakfast items over at Manousheh, a New York eatery that takes its name from the savory Lebanese pies that are such a stable of breakfast cuisine in the Middle East.

The wrap is made using an 11-inch piece of flatbread made in-house using traditional Lebanese methods. Once the flatbread is baked, it is slathered in zaatar, a powdery blend of ground oregano, thyme, marjoram and spices. A handsome amount of creamy akkawi cheese is then inserted into the wrap, which is topped by cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, mint and olives before being rolled up.

This zaatar and jibneh wrap is a Lebanese breakfast classic, and offers a beautiful blend of fragrant herbs, milky cheese and fresh flatbread that will put a smile on your face.
