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.
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.

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.
Yet another vegetarian dish!
