Cauliflower & Cucumber Salad

  I made this salad  as a a side  when I prepared lentils pilaf  known as “Mujedereh.”  Sorry don’t have any pics of the Mujadereh  since I did not take any pictures the first time I made this…  I will share it one of these days.   We normally make cabbage salad on the side [...]

10 Minute Salad: Minty Cucumbers with Feta Cheese

This is a super fun and easy salad to make.  I think it’s perfect when it’s hot outside and you don’t really want to go near the oven.

Barley Yogurt Soup with Lentils, Chickpeas and Za’atar Oil

At times I feel like I have become vegetarian when I really have not.  I think I have just become more conscious on my meat intake.    I am not sure if this is a temporary state, but on the upside  I am trying to expose my family into eating more grains, beans, veggies and exploring [...]

Red Lentil Tomato Bulgur/Burghul Pilaf

Knock. Knock… Hope you have not left.  I missed all of you very much.  It’s been too long since my last post.  I have lots of reasons why it took me too long to come back… shopping, holidays, New Year, family, kids, work, stress, laziness, sadness, confusion… should I say more? Happy New Year even [...]

My Mom’s Red Kidney Bean Soup with Baked Pita Chips

Before I start with the next wave of holiday festivities,  I have to think a little about my eating habits.  I need to save up some of my pigging out between Christmas and New Year.  This soup is just the perfect choice for the season.  It’s super simple, healthy and super tasty… oh not to [...]

Beets, Pomegranates and Carrot Layered Salad with Champagne Simple Syrup Vinaigrette

I was tasked on preparing a beet salad and jeweled Persian rice for my mom’s Thanksgiving party.  I will share the jeweled rice on another post… My mom  said all I had to do for the beet salad is combine cooked  beets  and pomegranates and top them with walnuts, lemon juice and olive oil.  This [...]

Panini: Caramelized Mushrooms & Onions with Armenian Braided String Cheese

I happened to be at an Armenian bakery last week to pick up some dessert for my kids’ doctor.  I wanted to thank her for her last month’s generosity –by taking her office some sweets and to thank her for treating my cold last month free of charge.  Can you believe it?  She did not [...]

Armenian Bruschetta with Pomegranates & Mint

I made this last Friday after my grocery shopping trip… It was too late for dinner so instead I wanted to have something that my husband and I can munch on for a late night “dinner.” How did I arrive to my conclusion of making Armenian Bruschetta?  Well, I wanted to use the Armenian loaf [...]

Quick & Healthy Fava Beans, Chickpeas, Olives with Tomatoes

I love cooking with chickpeas.  This dish is healthy, kid-friendly, quick and tasty and very filling. Everyone in the family loved it!  It is perfect for lunch – filled with lots of  flavor, fiber and energy!  The best part is that you can make this anytime you want a meatless dish, or do not have [...]
