    There's a large Middle Eastern population in Bayridge Brooklyn and amazing restaurants line the avenues...hummus is served with every dish on the's one of my favorite things in the whole wide world...if you haven't tried it, please do. I think you'll love it!

    Recipe #22060

    Lebanese-style green beans were always part of the family dinner table at my grandparents' house. In my opinion, they are a quintessential vegetarian comfort food. They are best served along side something that can sop up the delicious garlicky sauce. I recommend pilaf or mujadarrah.

    This is that magical white garlic sauce served all over the Middle East in one form or another. Thousands of my felow ex-expats know it as it comes with wonderful Saudi broasted chicken (like Al-Baik). In some countries this sauce is almost mayonaissey, and in others it is a more flow-ey sauce. I like the stiff version, but it is more time consuming as it's harder to blend.

    Recipe #432080

    From the National Honey Board. Prep time includes marinating (1 hour or up to overnight).

    Recipe #399210

    This is the Za'atar Spice Mix I get in our local oriental store. It contains more spices than usual za'atar and reminds me a bit of dukka. Like a mix of za'atar and dukka, and I like it very much.

    Recipe #381242

    This is so yummy, so creamy and an excellent hearty soup for winter! There are many variations, I like this one, mine (uh em) best. It tends to thicken as it sits, so your leftovers, you may want to add a bit of chicken of vegetable stock to thin a bit. Believe me, don't skip the fried pita bread, or substitute croutons, the fried pita really makes this soup! Enjoy!

    Recipe #195533

    I love these doughnuts; the orange glaze which has orange juice and zest in it is delicious! This recipe is perfect if you are baking for the holidays or having guests over. We have been making this recipe for about 5 yrs. We found it in the Oct. /Nov. 1999 Taste of Home magazine. Yield is about 36 crullers/ 18-20 servings

    A different rice dish from One Thousand And One Delights

    Recipe #171681

    A popular Mediterranean dish. Ingredients can vary, but this is the version I like the best. It includes sliced eggplant and ground beef with a wonderful layer of bachemel sauce on top. It does take some time to prepare, but tastes as good the next day, so can easily be prepared the day before if needed. I hope you enjoy!

    This doesnt taste exactly like arabian pita, but it is close. So quick and easy, and tastes better with arabian dishes (hummous, falafel, shawerma, etc). I make it when i can't get arabian pita, great with "fooll muddames" as well. This is my Mom's recipe.

    Recipe #17977

    If you love coconut macaroons, you will love this dish. This recipe is incredibly easy.This recipe yields a very moist cake that is traditional in the Jordanian/ Palestinian region.This recipe is different than the traditional harissa (also known as basbousa) which is made has semolina or cream of wheat as the main ingredient. I love coconut macaroons which this reminds me of, but in a cake like form.This is always a hit when i have company.If you cannot find unsweetened coconut, use regular sweetened and reduce sugar and use about 1 1/2-1 3/4 cup for the batter.

    Recipe #78772

    As a big fan of yogurt based marinades for chicken (for example Chicken Tikka), this one immediately caught my eye. Unlike Tikka, you only marinate this one for 30-45 minutes so it doesn't require much planning ahead. I have not tried this one yet but wanted to make it public for the Zaar World Tour. Cooking time include time to marinate the chicken.

    While snooping around various sources for Middle Eastern recipes, I stumbled across this. I haven't made this yet but it looks yummy. Please let me know! I did alter the wording of the ingredients slightly so they made more sense. Rising time is included in the prep time. Cook time is only the frying time. Posted for Zaar World Tour II. **I looked up this recipe - it's all over the web written exactly as i have it here with no mention of salt in the ingredients & 1.5c oil. I don't remember where I copied it from. I suggest 1tsp salt. I think it's time I made this myself....happy cooking! Also, wow, it was posted for ZWT 2! xo Bethie**

    Recipe #173583

    This is Lebanese basic dough. Ideal for Fatayers, Pastries etc. Got this from an authentic Lebanese food website.

    Recipe #263355

    A satisfying chicken dish with a mediterranean flavour. Very easy to prepare and ready in less than 90 minutes. Serve with fresh crusty bread, pasta or salad for a hearty meal.

    Recipe #233779

    It enhances the flavour of many foods, I live in Egypt and use it often, I always have in the fridge to liven up the taste buds. Ideal condiment for Liver, spaghetti, foul medames (Egyptian fava beans)

    Recipe #107277

    This is so good, especially on a cold winter day. Its a very hearty and savory dish. You could also add a squeeze of fresh lemon to bowl before serving, gives it a tangy flavor; and if you like heat, add a dash of red pepper hot sauce to bowl before serving as well. Enjoy!

    Before I got married, I had this for lunch every single day (Mom made it for me!)

    Recipe #13432

    This is an adopted recipe that I selected because it so closely matches my tastes. I do not intend to alter the recipe as it has so many favorable reviews. Once I prepare it, I may annotate the directions based on my experience.
