Delicious with rice dishes, particularly spicier ones of Indian style. But my family likes this with Middle Eastern rice dishes as we don't eat very spicy and DH loves a sauce with rice. You may add a squeeze of pomegranate juice from the husks of the seeded pomegranate depending how you remove seeds or add a little pomegranate molasses instead, found in Middle Eastern shops. A note to self, change it up a bit by adding fresh finely chopped mint when using sweet white onion sometimes. Modified from a recipe by Nigella Lawson on http://www.foodnetwork.com
Delicious at room temperature or slightly warm. A middle Eastern style recipe modified from a recipe found on http://desertcandy.blogspot.com where it says, "Don't be surprised if you find you can eat a whole head of roast cauliflower yourself, it's surprisingly addictive."
This is a staple in our home. A simple salad that is made throughout the Middle East, Arabian influenced African countries such as Sudan were it is called Salatet Zabady bil Ajur & the Mediterranean. It is served as a mezza or salad side dish. It is especially good as a cool sauce to be paired with hot rice dishes as we do. Recipe#387395, for example. Modified from Delights from the Garden of Eden by Nawal Nasrallah. Prep time does not include 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
Wonderful, aromatic and flavourful! The best Muhammar I have made and I have tried a number! Very important to use a cast iron pan or heavy pan and lots of butter to form the crust part properly, this makes it way more flavourful as well. This is very good served with Gulf Arabian fish or shrimp dishes as it is traditional. Modified from a recipe found on http://desertcandy.blogspot.com. A great example this rice goes with is recipe#443922.
Similar to the flavourful potatoes you can purchase in Lebanese restaurants throughout Ottawa, Canada. This goes really well with recipe#44858 marinated chicken breast, Recipe #409286, and a garlic sauce like, recipe#108234 without the cilantro and a little Balkan yogurt to lighten it up, along with, recipe#254171, for a meal like the restaurants only way better!

So tasty this is for company!! I serve this on a bed of my own Recipe #201454 and a fresh salad. The classic stuffed chicken gets a flavour boost from rice, meat, spices, raisins, almonds and tomato. "I like to add chickpeas to the tomato topping because the chickpea flavour reminds me of the roasted chickpeas that can be bought at street side stands around the Middle East." Adapted from Arabian Delights by Amy Riolo.
This is good. Thai red rice is unmilled (like brown rice) and takes longer to cook than polished rice like jasmine. However, because the grains are slender, they cook more quickly than other unmilled rices and use less water. Use a heavy-bottomed pot with a tight-fitting lid to ensure the steam is retained in the pot during cooking. One cup raw rice yields about 3 cups cooked rice. Measurements and times vary according to rice type, so follow the package directions. Find red rice at Asian markets or specialty markets, or substitute brown rice.
This is very tasty, healthy and easy to make. I serve this with Recipe #399309 which is excellent or plain yogurt on a bed of spiced middle eastern rice such as, Recipe #231601 with an addition of raisins or Recipe #201454, using ground beef and Recipe #79179 instead of allspice for better flavour. Lately we love it on top of Recipe #16616 as well.
We enjoy this delicious Iraqi recipe. It gives turnips/rutabaga/swedes a delicately sweet taste and a lovely hue. Modified from, Delights from the Garden of Eden by Nawal Nasrallah. NOTE: If using the small real white and purple type of turnip do not leave to soak in the water date syrup mixture after cooking as they may become waterlogged.
Soy sauce and fish are staples of many of the Pacific Islands where Asian influence has become infused into local cuisine. The abundance of shoreline provides ease to fresh fish as well. Here tasty glazed salmon kabobs, which go well with some sliced green onion, chopped ginger and fresh black pepper fryed in some butter and then mixed into a bed of cooked Basmati rice, my preference. I think this recipe was originally from the Highliner website.
Definitely a five star recipe that's base I found on another recipe site http://allrecipes.com where it had many rave reviews. I fixed it to be dairy & corn free. DH and I give this 5 stars. This is excellent served with my Recipe #362340 using the maple syrup option or drop a few blueberries on top of each pancake before flipping. They are already delicious with pure maple alone. These work with variations such as a delicious incorporation of chopped or mashed banana, alcohol free vanilla and a dash of coconut milk to taste almost like banana fritters. Enjoy them whichever way you choose!
A nice simple and tasty pilaf. I sometimes use chicken stock in replacment of the meat one. It's a must to use basmati! Very good with Braised Lamb (Tas Kebap). Basically the recipe from The Complete Middle East Cookbook by Tess Mallos
