    Middle Eastern Markouk Thin Saj Lavash Bread

    This Lavash thin bread, also known as "Markouk", is made using a "saj". Imagine flipping a wok upside down with burning wood underneath and laying thin dough atop for only a few seconds leaving the bread golden brown on both sides. This traditional homemade bread is as authentic as they come and you will still find grandmothers making this bread at home on a saj or saaj oven.
    This bread goes by many names such as saj bread, shrak bread, Arabic thin bread and lavash bread. Our Markouk is baked fresh daily and is made with 75 percent wheat flour. Markouk made with 100 percent wheat flour turns out chewy and not very appetizing. Many people also call it Lebanese bread but its made all over the Middle East.


    Markouk Saj Bread Serving Suggestion

    Open the loaf and spread all your favorite cheeses such as kiri , jams, meats or any other ingredients on the bread. We like to spread puck cream cheese spread on it and warm it in the oven for a few minutes. 
    And we all know nothing tastes better than warm markouk bread with Labne in Olive Oil. Simply warm the bread and spread the labne all over with some olive oil. If your really in the mood for a treat, sprinkle some zaatar on top and make a warm cup of Ceylon tea for a wonderful and traditional Middle Eastern breakfast.
    You get six to seven 24" loaves 18.7oz



    Flour, wheat flour, water, yeast and salt. May contain rice flour. Made In USA.

    This delicious, fresh bread is a pleasure to eat as it is very thin and makes a good dipping bread to absorb any spreads like hummos, baba ganoosh, labne, foul, etc. It can also be wrapped around foods like scrambled eggs easily. Because of its thinness, it is not filling and an entire loaf can be enjoyed by one person without that "stuffed" feeling at the end of a meal. It prolongs the pleasure of a meal without all the calories!
