  1. Loved This bread. It came out crisp and delicious. We dipped it into soup and scooped carrot salad with it. This made a healthy, yummy and fun addition to to our Moroccan meal. I really loved that it was baked and not fried. The Khobz was a hit with everyone except my DH but then he doesn't like much of anything so please don't count that against the recipe at all.
