Quinoa balls with spicy sauce

The best recipes are both tasty and healthy. You enjoy each bite with no guilt feeling whatsoever and go for a second serving without blinking an eye. These balls are nutritious flavour bombs. Plant-based, gluten-free, packing with proteins and flavour. I personally like the sauce nice and spicy (including the […]

Fried aubergine with roasted pepper sauce

I’m a big fan of fried aubergine. So much so, that usually eat half before they reach the table, with some Lebanese bread and a pinch of salt. Yum! So basically for this recipe, you could just skip the sauce and go straight to enjoying the fried aubergine, haha! But […]

Roasted vegetables with garlic sauce and sriraccia

In the Middle-East many dishes are common to the different countries. Each country, and sometimes, region, gives the dishes its own flair and its own touch. Take shawarma for instance: it’s part of practically each middle-eastern cuisine but tastes different from one to the other. This recipe uses the same […]

Zucchini moutabbal

‘What’s a moutabbal?’ I hear you say. Well in Lebanon (and the Middle-East in general) it literally means ‘mixed’ and usually indicates some kind of spread. In my family, when you say moutabbal you usually mean baba ganoush. Hummus has become a household item and the baba ganoush is also […]

Like zaatar and flat bread, there are a few things you’ll always find in Lebanese household. Labneh is no exception. It’s a kind of cream cheese based on yoghurt. The yoghurt is left to darin its fluids overnight and the next day you’ll the lovely creamy labneh. A drizzle of […]

Hummus galore!

Hummus. I, personally, cannot live without. I would gladly have it every day, any day. And I actually do that quite often 😉 Even though you can find all different types and flavours in the shops these days, truth is, the best hummus you’ll have is one you make yourself. […]

Lentils kibbeh

Yes! Another vegetarian kibbeh recipe (check out the pumpkin and the avocado kibbehs)! This one is an Armenian version, 100% plant-based, spicy, healthy and freakin’ delish! I love me some red lentils: soups, dals, spreads… I love it all! This dish in no exception. The addition of the fresh parsley […]

Salmon skewers

Salmon skewers

Salmon is one of the most flavoursome fish out there. Smoked, baked or grilled, it’s always makes a great dish. In general, fish combines beautifully with sour flavours. A pinch of lemon or lime juice brings out the flavour of the fish. This dish combines salmon with sour flavours but […]

Potato pie with black beans

From time to time, I like to take a meat-based dish and try to create a vegetarian or plant-based version of it. This one is based on my potato pie recipe and 100% plant-based. Beans, in all shapes and colours, are perfect as a substitute for minced meat. They have […]

Causa stuffed with white beans

Right here is some Peruvian inspired goodness: stuffed causa. As mentioned in another recipe, causa is a traditional Peruvian dish made with mashed potatoes and flavoured with lime juice and aji amarillo or yellow chili paste. Causa is very commonly stuffed with tuna or chicken salad. As I like to […]
