    This is a very common dish through out the middle east known as molukhia in Arabic, but its technical term is jews mallow. Egyptians are famed for their molukhia. Its picked during harvest time and either dried or frozen, so that it may be enjoyed through out the year. Because this is typically grown in the middle east,although there are a few farms that do grow this in the U.S., its readily available in most middle eastern stores either in frozen or dry form. My recipe is based on my frozen version. Recipes will vary throught the middle east, depending on region. Molukhia is made a couple of ways, but this is the more common. Molukhia is traditionally enjoyed with a side of rice and a lemon wedge.Try Egyptian Condiment (Daqua) #107277, to kick it up a notch.

    This recipe goes well with just about every middle eastern dish. Its very flavorful, one of my favorites.

    Turkish coffee is not just limited to turkey, but is a traditional drink all over the middle east. You can buy freshly roasted and prepared coffee beans while you wait Turkish coffee from most middle eastern grocers in the united states. They usually use a combo blend of light and dark coffee beans and grind cardamom up in it at the same time.You can even purchase Turkish coffee pots that Turkish coffee is made in at most grocers. If you don't have a Turkish coffee pot, don't worry, you can use any pot. This recipe is the next best thing.*Measurements are approximate, so you may add or decrease according to taste buds*

    Nescafe is a nice "cafe latte", that is served in the middle east. Its my favorite. This is the same recipe for Cafe Con Leche that I have posted.I just wanted to post it under both names.

    This is a recipe for a basic middle eastern stir fry, which uses alot of tomatoes as its base. This usually is served with a side of rice or middle eastern bread for dipping. I usually make this dish as a dinner, but sometimes even as a one of my breakfast dishes. This dish is common throught the middle east, but referred to differently such as Alayeh, Ghalabah e.t.c. and recipe varies. You can add diced tender beef or lamb, carots, green peppers e.t.c. This is how we like it in our house.

    This tea is great with a middle eastern breakfast,pound cake or tea biscuits. Typically just sage or mint is used in tea in the mid east, but I use both sage and mint together. Its my trademark beverage, which everyone always brags about, but you can use just mint or just sage, depends on your preferrence. Sage tea is used often in the mid east for its medicinal purposes, such as upset stomach, alieve cramps e.t.c.

    This is a quick and easy to prepare dessert. I usually always have the ingredients on hand. There are boxed versions of this pudding, but it is traditionally prepared at home. You can add more or less cornstarch if preferred. This dessert is so versatile that it can be served warm or chilled. I love to eat it both ways, when it chills it firms up.

    Recipe #86514

    This tea is used in the Middle East most often after a woman gives birth, believe it or not. Perhaps it's an old wives tale, but it is believed that this tea helps a woman's body recover more quickly after she has given birth. I wouldnt necessarily discount its healing ability, after all a lot of herbs and spices have been and are used in homeopathic healing remedies. Even so this tea is a tasty tea for all to drink.

    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.
