I now strongly believe that some recipes do actually call me to try them, I know this might be weird but true cause I look through many many recipes on daily basis but not all interest me to try them.
Well couple of days ago I saw this light healthy recipe in an account I follow on named Bandora (means tomatoes) , vegan type of kibbeh great for vegetarians or lint.
Fifty percent of ingredients is burgul, other half is sautéed onions and tomatoes, raw green onions, carrots,zucchini, coriander, parsely, mint, chili paste,salt, pepper,summaq and olive oil. All together in the food processor.
Started to think about what to cook today after morning order was done and delivered.
Well to tell you the truth I had to improvise anything according to what I have, so end result was cauliflower stew with minced meat, garlic, onions and tahini sauce on the side plus a small kibbeh for the boys.
Just realized that I haven’t posted since Feb 10’th , never happened before by the way, reason is that I’ve been very busy lately preparing for catering a big dinner for my sister in-law’s daughter farewell dinner. Thank God it was a big success, food was delicious and everybody was happy . Congratulations lovely bride to be.
Today’s order was chicken pie, kibbeh in a pan amongst other things.
A new creative idea, made kibbeh cupcakes then filled them with tzaziki which is finely chopped cucumbers with labaneh and yogurt seasoned with special seasoning ( garlic powder, oregano and mint) very elegant babies 😀😀😀
Full eventful day, orders and lunch. Mom and my nephews came by as well, we all had a nice cup of tea with some hot from the oven suborek, filled with cheese. So yummy,we even felt we’re in a Turkish series.
I’m not bragging or even hate to talk about myself but to be honest food was really delicious, all guests said so!
I’m 100% convinced that any dish cooked with love and willingness will taste great and this depends on your mood and to whom you’re doing it for sure.
Kibbeh day, intention was to make some mini ones and spread in a pan with nothing else or at least only some fries.
But then one thing led to another, got excited to do more appetizers to complete the Lebanese style, so end result was muhammra, rocca salad, chili potatoes, various types of kibbeh ( even fried the extra dough) and new olives.
When there’s a will there’s a way, never ever did I make kibbeh at home, always said I don’t know how and never tried,but upon my husband’s frequent request for kibbeh in a pan specifically which is the easiest kind I thought why not try .So he ordered the shell which is burgul and meat mixed together in specific proportions from the butcher and today was my first trial.
First of all I cooked the minced meat to make the filling then added to it chopped onions,salt, pepper, all spice, some walnuts, pine nuts and pomegranate to give it a sour taste.
Then I made three kinds of the kibbeh ,one spread in a pan, regular round ones for frying and tried these cute mini ones in the cupcake tray.
All was super yummy thank God, good job for a first timer I guess.
