My stepmother is a North Lebanon native, and her version of this is a secret, but this recipe is just as good. It's nice and hearty, and good for toddlers and babies. Pureed, it's called Mjaddara, and the onions are still tender, and mixed in. From the Sahtain cookbook.
A light, fluffy, whole-wheat pumpkin muffin with no refined sugar. Hearty, homey taste, and the kitchen smells like heaven when they're cooking. Sucanat can be found at whole foods stores or at Wegmans in bulk.
This is a better version of a granola cookie recipe. It uses Sucanat (an unrefined sweetener--you can find it at Wegmans or at health food stores) and Hemp Plus granola, which is a lighter granola with puffs in it, and flaxseed. (Don't worry, it's safe to eat, even for children). These cook up light and airy, and taste heavenly. Note: they're a little less healthy if you eat the whole batch...*burp*
I was fooling around with the Hershey's brownie recipe, and decided it needed some more yummy stuff in it. I used Sucanat for the recipe, but if you cannot find it (Wegmans or any reputable health food store) use all sugar. Sucanat absorbs more water than sugar, so make sure you follow the instructions. These are a bit heavy and cakey, and go well with ice cream.
I made this for my MIL when I forgot to turn on the oven for the turkey roast...It was great!! This was a quick save, and the idea came from a dish she had prepared from a 60's vintage book. The original was more involved, but this tasted just as good.
