Another simple middle-eastern recipe, perfect for light lunch, crispy Arabic bread, crunchy sauteed almonds , the tasteful onions,  a hint of sourness of sumac and moist with olives oil… yum…yum…

I’m sending this for the entry of AWED: Middle Eastern Cuisine , host by Siri and Dhivya.

Recipe for the bread, you can find it here,


  • 100 gr Almonds or peanuts
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 2 tbsp Olives oil
  • 2 tsp Sumac
  • Salt


  1. Saute onions with 1 tbsp olives oil until just soft,  (for non vegetarian you can add chicken fillet), season with salt, mix, remove from the heat, mix with sumac set aside. Heat oven  180′ C
  2. Fried the almonds with the other tbsp of olives oil until golden brown.
  3. Add the sauteed onions and almonds (with all of the oil) on top of the bread, put in the oven for 5 minutes.
  4. Eat while warm
