Ingredients

Homemade Zaatar Spice Mix (see note)

Toasts

Salad

Preparation

Zaatar Spice

  1. In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Set aside.

Toasts

  1. With two racks in the middle position, preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C).
  2. Using a pastry brush, brush the naan breads with 1 tbsp (15 ml) of the oil. Place the breads on a baking sheet or directly on the lower rack of the oven. Bake on the lower rack for 10 minutes or until the edges of the breads start to brown. Let cool.
  3. Meanwhile, on a non-stick or parchment paper-lined baking sheet, toss the zucchini with the remaining oil. Season with salt and pepper. Spread out on the baking sheet and bake on the upper rack of the oven for 5 minutes or until softened. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Spread the labneh over the breads. Top with the zucchini, sprinkle with zaatar to taste and drizzle with tahini, if desired.

Salad

  1. In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients.
  2. Cut the toasts into wedges and serve with the salad. To turn this recipe into a full meal, serve with hummus, tabbouleh and nuts, if desired.

Note

Ready-made zaatar spice mixes are available in certain grocery stores. Instead of zaatar, you can simply combine sesame seeds and oregano in a 2 to 1 ratio.
