A popular Middle Eastern restaurant in Raleigh NC, Neomonde is owned and operated by three brothers who make everything on site. I enjoyed eating there when I lived in Raleigh and I make it a point to stop by when I'm in town. I was pleased to see this recipe published in the local paper (News & Observer) and wanted to share. Cooking time is "soaking time"...
50 years age, Uncle Sam's Air force sent me on a 4 year paid holiday to Europe and North Africa. I spent several months at Sidi Slimane, Morocco where I found this dish. It is not only delicious, its quick and easy.In hot weather I cook a lot on the patio using my propane camp stove. Why heat up the house just to pay the electric company to run the air conditioner.
This is a unique side dish that's perfect for a warm summer evening. I created this for RSC #7. Add as much or as little curry as you please. You can use a red bell pepper instead of green, but the green makes for a more colorful salad. One reviewer also enjoyed this salad after adding a can of tuna. See the note in parentheses to make this dairy-free.
A quick and easy Vegetarian dish. Many times when I make this, I use a jar of spaghetti sauce rather than making my own sauce--makes it quicker and easier. You can also change the veggies you add to the sauce.
This dish may be your main entrée served with Pita bread or other Mediterranean flat bread. If it is your main entrée, you may wish to allow two pepper halves per person depending on their appetite size. It is beautiful served as part of a buffet and lends itself well to a Brunch, Lunch or Dinner party. Prepare ahead for those busy days and pop it into the oven 45 minutes before your family dinner time. A side salad goes well with the peppers.
Love couscous? Then this one may be for you. A fluffy bed of semolina topped with a rich wintery stew of squash ahd tomatoes. What's not to like? Described as a side dish, this would be a great meatless meal. Recently snagged this one from the Internet and posting here for safekeeping.
My friend and co-worker Cherie brought me a sample of this to work. I immediately asked for the recipe. It is delicious - bright and light! It would be great with simply grilled pork or chicken. Yummy!
I got this delicious recipe from a co-worker after she brought it to a potluck. It was definitely one of the hits of the day! Originally from Southern Living. Update Dec '09: I've now made this multiple times since originally posting; it is one of my absolute favorites for a potluck! I usually double it but find that if you cook double the amount of couscous at once, it can get gummy, so I cook it in two separate batches (cook one then use the same pot to do the next), then add the rest of the (doubled) ingredients.
