I go back to the archive and see what recipes should I make and add to keep a variety. I find that I should no longer post any salad recipe. But HOW CAN I? I LOVE SALADS
Mind you, when I say SALAD, I don’t mean lettuce and tomato and cucumber. This is a plain old [BORING] salad.
My salads are usually fun and exciting as I use ingredients that are not typical in restaurants. I love mixing between grains like lentils and freekeh, and big filling vegetables like zucchinis, carrots, peppers, and radishes, and leafy greens like the superfood spinach and rockets leaves and chards. All those are things you can easily get in the produce shops with an average price tag.
Ever had too much work but you didn’t feel like doing any?
You sit, open your computer, and just stare at the screen. Maybe open a couple of links and waste time until the day is over and you come to the conclusion that you didn’t do anything all day.
Today, I’m sharing 2 recipes in one post. I copied these recipes off The Hangout restaurant’s menu for you to try and replicate them at home. This is part of a new collaboration between Cookin5m2 and serVme where I will be sharing me experience with the chef, not my review because I don’t find myself qualified enough to dictate your taste buds, then share recipes on this recipe dedicated blog.
I got a date with Chef Salah, the chef at The Hangout, (all thanks to the sponsors serVme) one Tuesday night and I went with full enthusiasm to meet the chef and learn new recipes. Chef Salah was really nice, and we got to talk before and after our recipe session. Continue reading
A couple of Sundays ago, I joined a group of my colleagues for a long walk across the snow up the Lebanese mountains in a well-known winter sports town; Laqlouq. The plan was to take a 3-hour walk across the snow-covered hills, around the high hill with the large white cross overlooking the whole area, back to our starting point. We wore special snow shoes to help us walk better and prevent our feet and legs from taking a dive into the high heaps of fresh snow. We began our journey with enthusiasm and excitement, enjoying the warm first of March sun, that kissed us really badly at the end of the day. I turned off my mobile data and decided that I don’t want to use my phone. I took out my camera and took a few shots every now and then.
This is a non-traditional dish with traditional Lebanese roots. Or maybe I’m making this up to make you fall for this delicious dish. It’s delicious and filling for sure. The only traditional thing I felt in this is the texture of the ingredients in the tomato sauce. Reminded me of burghul pilaf in tomato sauce, or burghul aa banadoura.
