Middle Eastern style spread for Pita bread. This recipe is very tasty and easy to make. This is a very popular dish in this region. The base is usually Chickpeas and Tahini, but the flavor added to the base vary widely from one chef to the next. Tahini is a sesame paste, you can usually find it in the Mediterranean section of your grocery store.
This recipe was given to me by mother-in-law 28 years ago and she's been using it for over 40 years, she got it out of the newspaper where someone had written in and requested the recipe when they had it at a Sydney restaurant. It keeps well in the fridge and the flavour will increase with time. Have not included chilling time.
Handy hint - when we have family gatherings we double the mix but don't put in the tabasco sauce and then split the mix between 3 jars and in the first jar put 3/4 teaspoon, the second jar 1 1/4 teaspoon and the third 2 teaspoons so you have a mild version, a hot and super hot and if there is someone who would like it hotter still give them a small bowl and a bottle of tabasco and they can add more to their serve.
I hope this will taste like the recipe from Campbell's Soup Company, but even BETTER. They don't make that soup any more and I really miss it. I'm planning to make this using fresh tomatoes this summer from my garden.
This is a recipe I came up with the other night as I had a pork loin to use up. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it so I just used a bunch of stuff I already had in my fridge and cupboard and it turned out really well. I served ours over egg and vegetable fried rice but it would be just as nice served over steamed rice as well. Prep time does not include marinating time.
This is the only pasta salad my husband will eat. The dressing though similar to other BLT salads on the site has one major difference and it really adds a wonderful zip to the salad. When ever I serve this salad several people go home with the recipe.
This recipe from BBC Good Food is a quickie version of paella. It is made with basmati rice which shortens the cooking time considerably. It is a great recipe for a weeknight meal and it reheats well. In fact, it tastes better the second time around!
This is a yummy, healthy salad recipe, which will have you come back for more. :)
Well at least, if you like earthy beet flavour, combined with sweet apple and salty feat cheese. I hope youll enjoy!
The original version of this dish comes from German chef Tim Mälzer.
This combines 2 of my favourite foods salmon and sweet potato and being diabetic friendly is a big bonus. From BH&G Australian Diabetic Living. They suggest serving it with a garden salad or you could stuff into pita bread with salad or put them in a wrap with salad or on bread or roll of choice.
I was looking for a recipe for a wonderful salad with walnuts and pomegranate molasses dressing that we had in Turkey, and this was the closest I found. I was not too religious about removing seeds from the tomatoes though, and it was a little too watery, so next time I will be more careful. But the taste was good, very refreshing. You can also add some bulgur to it, if you want the salad to be a little heavier (in Turkey I had it both with and without bulgur).
A healthier and lower calorie alternative to potato chips and the fancy veggie chips available because these are not fried! These beet chips make a wonderful (and pretty!) snack. Good for packing in a lunch, serving at parties or just nibbling on. These are chips you can feel GOOD about eating. :)
This recipe is inspired by the many hummus recipes I have seen, but had added oil & were lacking the flavor I was seeking. It's classified as Greek for the actual Hummus part, and Indian for the coriander/cumin/cayenne combo, which is common in Indian food, and gives this dip an interesting twist. Tahini is sesame (seed) butter, and the best thing to use for the right flavor, but use peanut butter instead if you have to.
