    This is a very common food here in Egypt. Due to its cost, which is extremely low, it is a popular dish for many. With this recipe you can enjoy a traditional Egyptian breakfast in the comfort of your home! There is a LONG way to make this too, using dried fava beans and soaking and then cooking, this recipe makes it A LOT easier and in my opinion is even better! Enjoy!

    Recipe #345433

    This is AMAZING! Use any brand of non-alcoholic beer. This would probably be awesome for shrimp, veggies and anything you want to batter and fry. Trust me, this is delicious and some of the best fried fish. (and I have had some good fish frys on the east coast.) Enjoy!

    Recipe #344631

    This is amazing! I made it the other night and wow it was a HIT! I didnt measure anything, so I hope my approximate measurements work for you. You can't really mess this one up though, it'll come out great! Add or descrease yougurt and/or milk depending on creamy you want it. Enjoy with guests outside on a warm summer night. Would also be great for a BBQ!!!

    Recipe #300384

    This sauce is AMAZING! Not only is great as a sauce over chicken or enchiladas, its great as a dip for chips too! Amazingly to me it tastes like guacamole even though there is no avocado. I put some serving suggestions at end of recipe that i think would be great too. You have to try it and know that served hot or cold it will be a great hit. Enjoy!

    Recipe #287402

    This is a lovely dish you can whip up at the last minute. Its SO EASY, yet so delicious, if you have guests they will ask you for the recipe indeed. Enjoy!

    Recipe #286199

    What a twist….how better to prepare this classic dish by substituting smoked turkey instead of ham. Try it, really, you are sure to please those you share this meal with. And the best part is it is SUPER SIMPLE and has a wonderful presentation. Enjoy!

    Recipe #244373

    This is something I threw together the other night and if I may so, it is absolutley DELICIOUS! It makes great leftovers too. Enjoy!

    Recipe #244339

    These are really good and have a nice oniony flavor. At first I was not sure I liked the oniony taste, but have grown accustomed to it now. If you don't like onion, this dish is NOT for you, if you do, try it, super simple and you will love it!

    Recipe #211632

    This is so good, especially on a cold winter day. Its a very hearty and savory dish. You could also add a squeeze of fresh lemon to bowl before serving, gives it a tangy flavor; and if you like heat, add a dash of red pepper hot sauce to bowl before serving as well. Enjoy!

    Recipe #209019

    This is the perfect chicken dish for any occasion. Super easy and prep time includes marinating. As far as breading, many people make this by first dipping in flour, then in egg, then into bread crumbs, which does give a nice thick crust, but my recipe omits the egg and flour, using just bread crumbs, and they come out super crunchy and just as delicious! A friend of mine here in Cairo also omits the onion and marinates in garlic instead, I like the onion, but you could try garlic too. These go well with any pasta dish or rice. They make excellent leftovers for a delicious sandwich with tomato and mayo, that is if you have any left over! Enjoy!

    Recipe #201246

    This is a very refreshing little salad. I always make it along side many different dishes, goes great especially with anything barbequed. I also make it as a snack, eating half of it each time! Serves up great with slices of warm pita bread. A very garlicly salad, if you want you can decrease the garlic to your liking. Don't be turned off by the yogurt, even if you dont like yogurt, once the salad is made, there is no taste of yogurt at all. Smooth, creamy and refreshing. Enjoy!

    Recipe #200504

    What a great little, I mean little in quantity, sweet little treat. I adapted this from a One Cookie recipe here on Recipe Zaar. When I made, it made exact amount for two, or four really, but we, two of us, ate all in one night. A great recipe when you don't want to make too much, just right and super quick and simple! Enjoy!!!

    Recipe #200411

    This is a salad I make with leftover cooked cabbage that I have when I make Egyptian Style Stuffed Cabbage, see my recipe for these. It's so easy, but a great little salad with just the right amount of heat. Enjoy!

    Recipe #199388

    I made these for the very first time yesterday, and I must say how absolutely DELICIOUS they were! Good enough to eat alone, without any fillings really. They're super easy, and a great breakfast or brunch item. Enjoy!

    Recipe #199108

    This is AMAZING! Very popular, SIMPLE dish made in Egyptian households. Once you make it, it will become a favorite for sure. The key is in the onion's consistency once they cook down to the delicious thick sauce. Anyway enjoy, serve with rice or your favorite pasta. Enjoy!

    Recipe #195881

    This is something I always whip up as a great and easy side dish. Super simple, healthy and looks great next to any main course. Enjoy!

    Recipe #195860

    This is so yummy, so creamy and an excellent hearty soup for winter! There are many variations, I like this one, mine (uh em) best. It tends to thicken as it sits, so your leftovers, you may want to add a bit of chicken of vegetable stock to thin a bit. Believe me, don't skip the fried pita bread, or substitute croutons, the fried pita really makes this soup! Enjoy!

    Recipe #195533

    This was just something I made up last night, but surprisingly came out quite tasty. Its super easy and would be great at a potluck or besides a beautiful steak. Enjoy!

    Recipe #195527

    This is a staple in all Egyptian houselholds. Its super simple, but looks and tastes great! Make it place of plain white rice and serve with any dish. Especially good with Molokheya (recipe posted). Enjoy!

    Recipe #195100

    This is a Middle Eastern classic, but I must say its made best by those in Egypt! Ask anyone you know from Egypt about this and see what they say. It's so yummy, seems a bit strange has almost a gelatinous texture and slimy in its consistency, but once you taste you'll be hooked! Remember, you can find find frozen molokheya in most Middle Eastern markets. The English names for it are Jew's Mallow, Jute Mallow, Nalta Jute. Fresh is best, but I never found it fresh anywhere in USA. Frozen is just as delicious too, don't worry. Here in Egypt they cook this molokheya with rabbits, I have not been brave enough to try yet. Something about the thought of that cute little rabbit...LOL....Enjoy!
