Here chicken is roasted with a fig and pistachio couscous stuffing and basted with a spicy lemon marinade to keep the meat deliciously moist. A leafy salad with fresh oranges would make a great side dish.
This is a Syrian recipe called fasoliyyeh bi z-zayt which is delicious and surprisingly filling when eaten with pita bread. Use fresh or frozen beans.
A Middle Eastern side dish comprised of cooked broad beans, tomatoes, onion and cucumber with a lemon dressing. Simple and delicious.
A deliciously seasoned broad bean, onion and tomato spread. This recipe is inspired by a dish traditionally served with pita bread for breakfast in Egypt. A great way to use broad beans when they're in season, but feel free to use frozen when they're not.
We live in Saudi Arabia and my neighbor, Kokub who is from Pakistan makes the most amazing mango chutney. A few years ago she invited me to help her. Of course, she doesn't use a recipe, so the NEXT time I went over with my measuring cups and scale so I could recreate her magic on my own. What an incredible experience!
