    Since I have been back in NZ I have had the chance to go through my old Cuisine magazines. There are some fantastic recipes in them, this is based on one by Julie Biuso. Great with bread and cheeses/meats.

    Recipe #186781

    This is a non-wheat recipe similar to tabouleh. The quinoa is substituted for the bulgar. Cooked quinoa is lighter and fluffier than bulgar and personally I think it tastes better. It's lovely as a bed for grilled snapper or lamb. You can vary the ingredients used to your taste preference. Quinoa is gluten-free and can be used wherever tabouleh would be or in place of cous cous. Modern Middle Eastern flavours

    Recipe #232082

    Simple tasty dish for your next barbecue. Preparation time does not include 2 hours marinating time.

    A very refreshing salad that I saw on a TV show and I already made twice! Posted for WZT III.

    Recipe #229459

    If you enjoy lemon flavours then you may like this dish. I tried it with chicken breast but I always come back to drumsticks as it adds a lot of flavour into the dish. I normally remove the skin from the drumstick as I watch our families fat intake but feel free to leave it on. It’s hard for me to regularly find coriander so unless I can I just leave it out. Baking time can varies depending the size/thickness of the drumsticks. I normally bake them between 1.5 hours to 1 hour 45 minutes. This recipe comes from a book called 'Meals Without Red Meat' by Simon and Allison Holst.

    Recipe #184191

    Moroccan Chicken with lemons and three types of olives. If you like sour/lemon flavours then this dish will be suitable for you. This dish is very easy and preparation time is only 10 mins and 30 mins to marinate. The recipe requires 1 chicken cut into serving pieces but I used 8 chicken pieces (thighs & drumsticks) with skin off. I don't normally have fresh coriander regularly available but I used 1 teaspoon of coriander powdered. It comes from a book called 'The Olive Oil Cookbook' by Marlena Spieler.

    Recipe #191643

    A Lebanese friend showed me how to make this back in 1996. It's my mother-in-laws favourite salad and I normally make it on request specially for her. I prefer flat leaf fresh parsley (also known as Italian Parsley) as it's better texture but curly leaf is alright. I normally buy the parsley and spring onions from the supper market prepacked bunches so if your measurements are slightly more or less it's alright, it doesn't have to be exact. The bourghul also soaks a lot of the moisture and I like Tabbouli to be moist not dried that's why there is a lot of lemons and olive oil. Like everything we cook it's all about the palate and who we are cooking for so if you choose to put less oil and lemons then it's ok. Salt and black pepper to taste, so feel free to add less but not to much. The secret to good Tabbouli is that everything should be finely chopped. Enjoy

    Recipe #197922

    This is a chicken on a skewers recipe with Lebanese flavours. The whole family enjoyed this dish, even three year old Little Miss (DD). The only change I would make is I would make less of the Toum (Garlic Sauce) as it was way too much for our family and I don’t know how to divided the quantity as it’s impossible to half an egg. (Any suggestions)? I used Chicken thighs instead of breast, Egg Replacer to substitute the egg and I would recommend to marinate overnight. We served it with Recipe #218542 . This recipe comes from a book called 'The Lebanese Cookbook' by Hussien Dekmak - Passive work time does not include marinated time

    Recipe #218539

    Granita is a cool, sorbet like desert. I'm slightly addicted to granita's and I had one pomegranate left at home so this is what I made with it. Basically it's one pomegranate per person if you would like a descent size desert. The original recipe was found on http://fooddownunder.com/ but it has been dramatically modified

    Recipe #218198

    My neighbour was telling me about this dish a while ago and they way she explained it made my mouth water. I asked her a copy of the recipe and here it is now on Zaar. I've only tried it once and next time I make it I may remove the liquid/sauce and puree it so it could be a thicker green sauce. I will also try it with chicken thighs as I used chicken breast and it wasn't tender as I wanted it to be. Overall the flavours were yummy and I served it with cous cous. UPDATE!! After much consideration and experimentation, I've double to sauce as suggested by the reviewers - NOTE!! An "average" sized bunch of coriander is 60 grams (2 oz) = 1 1/2 cups chopped

    Recipe #206487

    Growing up with parents who were born in Cyprus (Turkish Speaking). I was basically taught how to make Turkish Coffee which is called Kahve at a young age (well old enough to safely be around flames from the stove). Kahve is traditionally prepared in a small long handled pot narrowing on at the top this is called cazve. Kahve is ideally made one cup at a time and served in a small espresso cup. Measurements for one cup is equal to one espresso size cup about 90 mls/3 oz. There are different varieties of Kahve with four listed below.

    Recipe #222224

    This is not quite the chicken doner from the restaurants but it's quite easy to make and satisfy my cravings. You must use fresh chicken and not use chicken that has been previously frozen. You will need to prepare the chicken overnight and freeze. I had trouble slicing my chicken with an electric knife so I would defrost it a little longer then 45 minutes. This recipe comes from www.turkishcookbook.com - For the Aussies ground chicken = minced chicken - Does not include overnight marinating time

    Recipe #222098

    This recipe comes from ‘Barbecue, delicious recipes for outdoor cooking’ by Louise Pickford. I'm often want to use thyme as I adore the smell. I thought this amount of thyme will make the recipe pungent but it actually taste yummy marinated with the chicken then barbecued and the flavour is strong but not overpowering. Time does not include Marinating time Update: I have had a few questions regarding the thyme leaves: use the leaves only for measurements (don't include steams) measure the leaves after it has been removed from the steams.

    Recipe #221731

    Simple cous cous perfect for side dish.

    Recipe #221217

    Kofte's is a meatball which is native to Cyprus, Turkey and some middle east regions. They came in all shapes, sizes and different flavours. This recipe is my mothers recipe, she normally uses beef but since I don't eat beef she use chicken if I'm coming over. We serve them with Recipe #36126 (We make the exact recipe) and a green salad or parsley salad. The cinnamon, mint, salt and black pepper are not the exact measurements as mum uses her hand to measure anything, feel free to add more but only to your taste.

    Recipe #220465

    Fattoush is a classic Lebanese dish. It is often eaten by itself as a starter or light lunch. Saumac is an essential ingredient. It is a spice that is made from the dried, powdered berries of the sumac tree. It was my first time trying Saumac and I really enjoyed it, next time I would add one more teaspoon of the Saumac. This was used as a side salad for Recipe #218539 . This recipe comes from a book called "The Lebanese Cookbook" by Hussien Dekmak

    Recipe #218542

    These are a popular Lebanese dish. They are also vegetarian and gluten free. For gluten free ensure the stock used is labeled as GF or homemade. Can be served with natural yogurt if desired. These make a great gluten free lunch- no bread and packed full of protein.

    Recipe #228675
