Growing up, when we would visit my aunts, there would always be a platter of labneh, za’atar, olives, pita bread, tomatoes, and cucumbers out for breakfast. They’re flavors that I grew up with. They’re familiar. My version of comfort food.

LABNEH ZA’ATAR TOAST

Maybe these ingredients sound foreign to you but hear me out. Labneh is a middle eastern yogurt cheese. I would describe it as a cross between Greek yogurt and cream cheese. It’s thick, tangy, full of protein, and delicious.

Za’atar is a middle eastern herb blend of sumac, sesame seeds, and salt. You can make it yourself, order it online, or pick it up at a specialty store. There is no shortage of middle eastern markets in Metro Detroit but I’m not sure that’s the case around the country.

So, you still with me? Two possibly new-to-you ingredients but they’re actually very simple.

I took those ingredients and paired them with the new Pepperidge Farm Harvest Blends™ bread and made a really simple meal that’s full of flavor. I picked up the Pepperidge Farm® Seeded and Ancient breads and they’re both great – soft, filling, and taste like fresh baked bread.

Toast up some slices of the Harvest Blend bread, spread on some labneh, drizzle on some olive oil, and sprinkle on some za’atar. Slice up a few garden tomatoes (are your plants still producing tomatoes? mine are!) and some English cucumber and I had a filling dinner (that would also be great for breakfast or lunch) that I felt really good about eating.

The sunflower, flax, and seasame seeds in the Seeded bread pair perfectly with the za’atar.

    Simple and easy-to-make and bursting with flavors. I am not a fan of plain yogurt and love to combine it with vegetables or add to dips. I’d probably sprinkle my favorite spices – some sweet paprika and a bit of cilantro/parsley for extra crunch. Definitely pairing it with your zaatar chicken salad. Thank you for this handy brunch inspiration. True zaatar herb is a rare find in the US, even in mixes bought from ethnic food stores. When shopping online, search for pure zaatar or zero-filling za’atar, as blend quality greatly varies. If I am allowed to add a store link in the comment, I’d recommend http://www.eatzaatar.com.
