Hello everybody, hope you’re all enjoying the amazing weather.

Well today I can assure you that everything happens for a reason, I absolutely had no idea what to cook this morning then by coincidence I found out that my freezer was off since a while from the loosened wire so I had to cook melted stuff. End result were fava beans and steaks in yogurt, two pieces of scallop and two burgers.

My son decided to stuff burgers with cheese so I coated it with eggs, flour and breadcrumbs then deep fried the ball.

Result was variety of yummy stuff at the end

Fava Beans and Eggplant Fatteh.

Hello everybody.

No meat or chicken today, dinner was green fava beans in olive oil with garlic and coriander and eggplant fatteh without the meat on top.

 

Soup was Carrot and salad was Ceazer.

Eggplant Fatteh ( فته مقدوس)

3-4 cubed fried eggplants.

* finely chopped onion.

* roasted or fried squared pitta bread.

* tahini sauce ( tahini,lemon,salt,yoghurt,garlic)

* tomato paste.

* chopped parsley.

* cooked spiced minced meat.

* toasted almonds and pine nuts.

* salt,pepper,all spice and cinnamon for seasoning.

 

* saute onions till tender then add fried eggplants.

* add all seasoning,tomato paste and enough water to cover all then leave to simmer till sauce is thick and eggplants tender.

* layer pitta bread in Pyrex or serving dish,add eggplant with sauce on top.

* add tahini sauce then garnish with parsley,meat and nuts.

Note: this dish must be assembled right before you serve so as pittas stay crisp otherwise they’ll be so soggy.

 

As for the soup…you’ll need one small onion.4-5 carrots. 1 cube chicken stock.butter. one big spoon oatmeal.cream or milk and 4 cups water.
Sautee the onions and carrots till tender.add the chicken stock cube.oatmeal  and water.salt.pepper and a bit of cinnamon.

Let it simmer for 45 minutes on low heat till carrots are soft.
Mix all with a mixer or blender..add the cream..then let it boil for another 10-15 minutes…..and serve hot with toasted croutons if you like

Freezing Vegetables.

Hello everybody.
No cooking today, each one has plans either for lunch or dinner so no cooking is necessary, did a bowl of Russian Salad it will do just fine in guess.

Spent this morning cleaning and preparing some fresh peas and fava beans for freezing, my husband bought some from side road sellers on his way back from Irbid yesterday, very fresh and green, I usually only cut wash and freeze directly.

Peas were really sweet and tender, boiled some and added them with carrots, corn and potatoes to the salad.
