Nachos in an Eastern Look (فته مكسيكيه).

Hello everybody.

We all ate too much during this week ,lunches and dinners, so today we’re eating light to at least lessen the guilty feelings.

I made potato salad with dill and spring onions,grilled veggies tossed with pomegranate syrup and olive oil and this Mexican dish in an Arabic twist.

Learned this dish from my cousin, you simply cook some onions,tomatoes and black beans to form a sauce then spread it over the Nachos then add tahini sauce,chopped tomatoes,beans and some parsley on top. Really easy and light cause you don’t add cheese or butter,you can use light nachos for a healthier version.

Hope you all enjoying Friday so far.








Vegetarian today, Mujadara :)

Today is no meat or chicken day….I made mujaddara..
..It’s a traditional middle eastern dish…made from lentils and rice or burghul.
it’s served with basic old fashion salad…which means it contains onions, tomatoes, dried mint.lemon juice.salt and a drizzle of olive oil.

Recipe for Mujaddara:
1 cup brown lentil.
1 cup rice or coarse burghul.
1 cube chicken stock.

1 or 2 large onions

Boil the lentils in water with 1 small spoon cumin powder till tender.
Wash the rice or burghul add them to the lentils, with the maggi cube, 1tsp of each,, salt, black pepper, mixed spices…and 2 large spoons olive oil.
Add water to the mixture ( almost 2 and 1/4 cup)…let it boil then lower the heat till rice is cooked.
Chopp the onions to thin slices and fry in olive oil till crispy…and serve them with the mujaddara…
This is a very nutritious dish,, a good source of protein and iron.
Some people love to eat it with yoghurt as well.





And the evening is completed with simple strawberry cake with syrup and minted tea at our lovely friend Ruba’s house.
