Manakish (Manaeésh or Manakeesh) is one of the traditional pastries in the Levant. It’s a pizza-like pastry, topped with thyme (Zaátar) and Olive Oil mixture. They can be made in small or large sizes. Manakish makes a great breakfast as well as a light supper with a cup of red tea.
Zaátar is a vegetarian nutrient obtained from ground dried thyme leaves, and added to this powder some toasted tiny sesame seeds, little salt, and summac. (Click on link for more info and photo: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Za%27atar).
Thyme or Zaátar is high in anti-oxidants, and there’s a belief that it improves memory and makes the mind alert, or at least that’s what our parents used to tell us when we were kids
