      One of my most favorite breakfasts! I used fresh coriander instead of the parsley and fresh hot Moroccan peppers, and topped it all with lots of za'atar. Mopped it all up with a soft, hot pita fresh from the bakery, and washed it down with some Turkish coffee flavored with cardamom. One of the most perfect Middle Eastern breakfasts there is, thanks!
