Words could never explain just how delicious this dish was!

A mushroom and freekeh risotto topped with juicy boasted chicken spiced with plenty of Palestinian zaatar, garlic and black pepper.

Oh. Dear. Lawdy.

Making breakfast for the familia always makes me happy. Making a huge spread for them and patiently waiting for them to wake up.

This here is foul. A bean puree with lots of lemon, green chili, cilantro and tahini. Holy crabs, it’s good!

I’ll share more of the things being made as they finish.

Oh and Merry Christmas to those celebrating! ♡

Bringing Palestine to the breakfast table.

Weve got some homemade olives, kubbeh, hummus, and Goat’s cheese and olive oil straight from Palestine! Couple it with some sweet mint tea, and it’s like you’re back at home!

Healthy and Easy Lentil Soup recipe

This baby is a recipe I got from my wonderful mother. It’s her faux creamy orange lentil soup with veg. It is a winner, I promise!

Back at home we used to usually have this soup during the cold winter months, or during Ramadan for extra nourishment–protein and hydration. It’s an easy and quick vegetarian recipe to use when you just can’t be bothered to cook a decent meal–a bit of this soup and you’re warm, full, and fuzzy inside. It’s a good option for a healthy and quick lunch or/and dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 1 sliced carrot
  • 1 chopped green pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 medium sized onion
  • ¾ of a mug of orange lentil
  • ¼ of a mug of basmati rice
  • a pinch of cumin
  • 1 cube of chicken stock
  • 1 lemon
  • olive oil
  • coriander
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 ltr of boiling water

Method:

First, chop the onions and carrots and saute until tender in a deep pot. While the veggies tender, measure your lentils and rice in a mug and wash until the water runs clear (getting rid of any excess starch or muck). To the onions and carrots add the garlic, green pepper, stock cube, and coriander and cook on a medium-low heat.

Once the cumin has been toasted, add 1 liter of boiling water and add rice and lentils. Bring to a boil, cover and let simmer for 20-25 minutes or until carrots are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with ripped coriander, a drizzle of olive oil, and lemon.

You can never go wrong with my Puerto Rican mother’s version of a Palestinian classic ‘Shorbit Adas’.

We also had a nice “creamy” lentil soup packed with vitamins and antioxidants! How’s that for clean eating?

I had some of the best food I’ve had in a while last night, but today I need to to easy on my poor stomach. I had lots of fruits and smoothies for breakfast and this soup and a salad for lunch.

How do you like to restore balance in your stomach?
