Buraniyyah is a salad preparation of the mallow green, Mlukhiyyah. While the cooked version is very popular, this unique salad preparation is one that has been in my family for generations. I’m sharing the recipe in hopes to introduce Mlukhiyyah lovers to something different and to keep this recipe’s story alive.
Grape leaf season only means one thing in my family-Warak Dawali (Stuffed Grape Leaves). I’m talking everything from foraging to filling in this blog post. Gather your friends to help roll grape leaves and have the ultimate summer feast together!
I’m sharing my recipe for Fresh Mint Lemonade. My aunt made me fall in love with this drink on one of my trips to Palestine. Now as the weather warms up in Chicago, this is my simple, go-to drink to enjoy with family and remind me of home.
I’m sharing my recipe for Adas, a simple lentil soup that is on our table almost every day of Ramadan. It only requires 5 ingredients, it’s vegan-friendly, and is ready to eat in under an hour. Ramadan Mubarak!
This past October, I was invited to speak at Food On The Edge in Galway, Ireland. Food On The Edge is a 2-day symposium bringing together people from different parts of the food industry to discuss stories, ideas, and the future of food. Some shared their innovations around food sustainability, others talked about mental health, and some challenged all of us with calls to action.
Breakfast! Ok, now that I have your attention, I’ll share a little secret…I’ve always had a weird love/hate relationship with breakfast. So, I love breakfast food, but I was never a huge fan of eating in the morning as soon as I woke up. I’m more the wake up to a warm cup of coffee and lounge around for a bit until I have to get on the road to work. So on most days, my breakfast is something simple like fruit or toast. Let’s just say a lot of my breakfast recipes usually end up being cooked for brunch, lunch, or dinner! Luckily, this recipe for my Breakfast Pita is an easy one you can throw together for yourself or make for a crowd any day of the week!
