This was a basic veggie sandwich that I came across and tried. It was very bland and lack luster in it's original form. This is my revised version, it now has life, good taste and interest. One of these sandwiches will make lunch for DH and I.
Instead of buying a bottle that will sit in the fridge for ages and takes up space. I find it easier to make my own garlic sauce for when I eat falafel. It is a lot cheaper as well. Also you can adapt it to your own taste. it is very easy to make and takes up no time.
This is an adaptation of a dish my husband cooks from Libya.
As with all my recipes.... adapt it to your own tastes... add a little of this or leave out a little of that.... use a little more of this or a little less of that until you find how you like it.
If you like HOT stuff I bet this would be good with some peppers but I wouldn't have a clue which kind would compliment it best.
I don't know if this is Libyan or Tunisian, but its a delicious North African way of cooking fish. This is also great cold. I used to cook this a lot on Sundays and bring the leftovers to work on Monday. People's mouths would water when I heated it up in the microwave.
Bold North african flavors stand up to even the heartiest of hot dogs. Pile the dogs high with spicy harissa or sambal oelek flavored carmalized onions' a bright, pleasantly bitter preserved lemon relish; and just a bit of hummus.

I used sambal oelek and i used mint from my garden that i froze and then defrosted a bit... It worked.
Qatayif are made throughout the Arab world in Ramadan, and at no other time. The origins of these stuffed and fried pancakes, like the traditional Ramadan lantern go back to medieval Cairo. The filling can be either sweet cheese or nuts and raisins. This is the nut filling version flavored with orange blossom water and cinnamon. Found on Libyan Food.
So many versions of this exist and I have tried them all.. This northern middleeast version (syria-lebanon-jordan) doesn't use eggs and so tastes less cake like. This is my favourite version and it is the classic one! I only use one heaped cup of coarse ground semolina, to make thin squares.
