As for lunch at home I made this lovely bright beetroot apple dip or salad that my sister told me about since beetroots are in season  these days,this can be a very nice healthy dish to make instead of processed ready dips.

Ingredients and method:

* 2 large beetroots boiled or baked.

* 2 apples.

* 2 tablespoons mayonnaise.

* 2 tablespoons labaneh.

* 2 tablespoons crushed walnuts.

* salt and pepper.

* grate beets and apples then squeeze them with your hands to remove all excess water.

* mix mayonnaise,labaneh,walnuts,salt and pepper.

* add beets and apples then mix well.

* put mix in a bowl then leave in fridge a bit .

* turn it upside down and serve with chips or toasted bread.

Then I went out with my lovely college friends to Yoshi for sushi, though I’m not a fan of it but food was great and atmosphere and service were excellent, company was the best part of the evening as always.

As soon as I arrived back home my aunt and her lovely daughters passed by and brought Falafel sandwiches, unfortunately I was full :( though I love it, again it’s the company that matters. Love you 3amto <3.

Lazy Friday:)

Hello everybody….typical sunny lazy Friday.
We all got up late..and I woke up with a bad back pain,, so my lovely family said no cooking today.
Best solution for a late breakfast and no lunch is  hummus, falafel, fatteh, fool meal (حمص.فﻻفل.فته.فول ).
Well hummus, fatteh and falafel are bought..some people buy fatteh also….though it’s more delicious if done at home….well frankly I never did..but will bring the recipe from my uncle…who’s famous of doing the best fatteh and post it for you.
As for fava beans (فول مدمس ) I usually make at home.
I use a can of cooked fava beans.heat it very well then add it to a mixture of chopped green or dry onions.chopped tomatoes. Fresh mint leaves.juice of half a lemon.1 small spoon of cumin powder.dried mint.paprika.salt,, a spinkle of hot chilli and olive oil.mix heated beans with and…….Bon Appetit.
