    Can substitute Greek yogurt for lebni.

    Really great flavors! We served the eggplant puree and the fava hummus on separate serving dishes (they were separate recipes and we wanted to save the leftovers that way) and kept the yogurt and za'atar portion separate, but the combo on the flatbreads was amazing. No changes, and I'll riff off of this for some time.
