I grew up hearing that carrots are good for your eyes. It is true that carrots have a lot of health benefits. Several experiments have shown that beta-carotene and antioxidants, both present in carrots, have either prevented or cured diseases. The benefits to eyesight are less obvious. Unless a person has an existing severe Vitamin A deficiency, eating carrots will not likely have a positive impact on vision. Sorry to dash your hopes, carrot eaters!
It’s zucchini season! Of course, we can buy them all year long, but the zucchini season starts in May and lasts until October, at least on the north side of the hemisphere.
The zucchini lovers will enjoy this recipe. It’s super easy to make, but to fully succeed, it’s very important to let the zucchinis rest long enough to release their water. Otherwise, the dough will be soaked and you’ll have a soggy tart.
This is another vegetarian Lebanese dish with an olive oil base. It’s always a success. Easy to make and as it is a cold dish, you can prepare it in advance – even a day or two before.
A crumble is a delicious dessert that can be part of your Christmas menu. It’s a very easy and quick dish to prepare. You can make it in advance and warm it up at the last minute, as it should be eaten warm. You can easily double the portion if you are hosting a big group.
Fall is here; the leafs are changing colors, the sky is deep blue, and the temperatures are dropping. I think a nice hot soup for supper will be more than welcome in cold nights.
Ce gâteau au chocolat est le gâteau d’anniversaire de ma fille depuis qu’elle a l’âge de choisir son propre menu: Spaghetti et le gâteau au chocolat de maman.
Lebanese cheesecake, or the unpronounceable Knafeh be jibneh! This is a homemade version of it – maybe, and just maybe, a little bit lighter than the original.
Potimarron, or Red kuri squash, is a hard-shelled winter squash variety with a firm orange flesh. It belongs to the Cucurbita maxim group. The flesh provides a very delicate and mellow chestnut-like flavor (marron means chestnut in French).
A ne pas confondre avec la Moussaka grecque! Bien sûr ce sont deux plats à base d’aubergines mais la Moussaka’a Libanaise est un plat végétarien à base d’aubergines mais aussi de pois chiches, tomates, menthe et huile d’olive.
Je n’ajoute aucune autre épice car j’aime le goût dominant de l’aubergine et du pois chiche.
