Lavash Recipe – Learn How to Make this Middle Eastern Bread

Lavosh or Lavash is a thin, flavorful and crunchy Middle Eastern bread that is delightful as a picnic snack or an appetizer. This sweet-savory flatbread is popular in Middle Eastern countries such as Iran, Turkey, UAE, and Lebanon, etc. The tantalizing aroma and heavenly taste of this bread not only tickle your taste buds but also make you fuller. You can enjoy it as a main dish or serve it with your favorite soup. So Yummy and healthful!!

This delectable dish, lavosh resembles an American Flatbread and is found with numerous variations. I flavor it with black sesame seeds and melted butter, but you can also use white seeds, fennel seeds, or chilies. Here is my favorite lavash recipe.
