  • It's Friday! A long weekend is ahead of us! The sun is shining (for now!)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And this is perfect for your long weekend plans: Preserved Lemon and Garlic Chicken platter. The chicken was juicy and tender, loaded with tangy flavor. Loads of fresh veggies and herbs, all wrapped up in a warm pita with a garlic dill yogurt sauce.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm going to share the chicken marinade, with a caveat: I made it with leftover toum I had in the fridge that needed using up....
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Into the blender, one and a half preserved lemons and about a quarter cup-ish of toum. No toum? You can approximate with 8-10 cloves of fresh garlic and a glug or two of olive oil. Blend. Then I added some smoked paprika and oregano. Tasted, and added a couple pinches of salt and another dash of lemon juice. Marinade cubed chicken breast pieces overnight. Grill on skewers.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The sauce was a little bit of the same: yogurt, some toum, lemon juice, fresh dill. To taste. Simple, fresh, satisfying. Perfect start to the grilling season 🙌
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(This is pretty loose so if you are wanting to do this and have Qs, I'm happy to answer them!)

  • Kofta Kebabs with Cauliflower-Rice & Feta Salad
🥗
This is probably my favorite dish when dining at a Middle Eastern restaurant. Although convincing my children to go when a burger or Mac & Cheese isn’t available is another story. So I’ll get my fix by making it myself!
. 
Ground beef & lamb mixed with onions, garlic, parsley and spices then drizzled with tahini dressing and set on a bed of sautéed riced cauliflower. Paired the kebabs with a cucumber, tomato and feta salad with a za’atar vinaigrette.

  • “MAQLUBA”  is a middle eastern rice and vegetable recipe which literally means “upside down” in Arabic. It is essentially an one - pot recipe of stewed meat, vegetables, herbs and good and flavorful basmati rice layered in perfection and turned upside down to unravel a towering perfection.  It is a great ONE POT WONDER for the following reasons - 
1. No fuss recipe 
2. Takes less time to prep and cook.
3. One pot recipe
4. A complete meal containing - carbs, protein, fats, fibre, essential vitamins and minerals.

Eid Mubarak to all my friends who’re celebrating. Stay blessed! 💝🤗 WHY I CALL IT A “COMPLETE MEAL”? - 
1. CARBS - Basmati rice has a higher fibre content and is a great option for various meal plans, prevents against cancer cell formation, prevents constipation, protects against heart health risks. 
2. PROTEIN - Chicken 🐔 is a great source of lean protein and has abundance of selenium, phosphorus, niacin. 
3. FATS - Using good quality butter or ghee (deviation from the traditional recipe ) guarantees a good healthy source of heart healthy fats and is an all natural nutritional powerhouse. 
4. FIBRE - Vegetables used in this recipe are - Eggplants, cauliflower, potatoes, cauliflower are rich in fiber. 
5. VITAMINS & MINERALS - Tomato is a great source of Vitamin C, Potassium, Vitamin K1 , Folate which are great for normal tissue growth and cell function. Potatoes are Hugh in fiber, rich in potassium, Iron, Vitamin B6. And, Eggplants have an abundance of anti- oxidants, contains polyphenols or natural plant compound which may reduce sugar absorption and increase Insulin absorption.
