Moroccan Medley Salad Bowl

Moroccan Medley Salad Bowl

What’s a Buddha bowl? Because I have been seeing many of them on the Internet these past 2 years and I still can’t figure out what it essentially is. I got the basic concept behind it: compartmenting your salad but then, is that it? Is there no other requirement to achieve a Buddha bowl? I really want to know.

1 Pot Loubia Stew with Sundried Tomatoes and Kale (Vegan Bean Stew)

When you’re hungry on a weeknight, don’t have time to cook and still don’t feel like ordering, what do you do? You make loubia! All you need is one pot, 10 ingredients and less then 1 hour! The result is a creamy and flavourful stew that is packed with earthy Moroccan flavours. My mom used to make loubia and add pieces of khlii in the stew while it was still simmering. Khlii is a kind of Moroccan-ized meat jerky, it’s incredibly tasty. It is not on the blog yet but it should make its appearance at some point!

Summer is almost over! Well, depends if you consider September is an acceptable extension of summer. And this really depends on where you live. I like to think that September is not summer. September still means for me: “holidays are over and we’re going back to school (or reality!)”.

Zaammus - Zaalouk + Hummus Dip

I am back from Beirut with beautiful memories and fantastic culinary ones! My belly was so happy over there. It was my forth time in Beirut but this time was very special!

This time I made it my mission to discover as many new foods as I could, exclusively levantine foods, of course. I loved doing this! Actually, I should do it everywhere I go. Everyone should! There’s something very satisfying about going out of your comfort zone and trying new foods. Obviously, I was already pretty familiar with this type of cuisine thanks to my favourite human on earth aka husband aka Zayd who is Syrian and whose family has taught me a lot about Levantine foods.
