Khoubiz is a Lebanese bread. It is also known as middle eastern flat bread. I love it because is soft and not too doughy. It’s also light and it will not go hard the next day. All you have to do is cover it and it will keep beautifully for the next day.
You can make lots of toppings, but traditionally they use only za’atar, which is thyme mixed with good quality of olive oil, and spread on the bread. I learned how to make this bread a long, long time ago. My sister makes them far better than me. I could never make them as fast as she did, as I was afraid to burn myself. I have made many different types of bread, but this one is my favourite to eat as I make each one that little bit different. I love the one with harissa paste (home-made of course!) I sometimes save those ones just for me to eat, it’s not too difficult because not everyone in the house is a harissa fan.
Khoubiz can be enjoyed at anytime, with almost any food – try it to accompany anything.
Let’s see how to make them.
