Mediterranean Breakfast Wraps

Mediterranean Breakfast Wraps

A typical Middle Eastern or Arabic breakfast consists of many kinds of dishes. They are mostly healthy and nutritious ones. Syrians and Lebanese for example, eat egg, cheese, za’atar, labneh (yoghurt spread), olives, makdous, fruit jams, and fresh bread. Ful-mudammas, a fava bean salad, and fatteh, a dish made with tahini, yoghurt, pita bread, and chickpeas, are two more unique breakfast dishes.
