    This is one of my favorite recipes! It is a thick Persian stew (or aash) flavored with fresh herbs, tangy pomegranate syrup and tiny meatballs. You may want to prepare the aash a day in advance, it tastes even better the second day, after the flavors have melded. The meatballs may be omitted or substituted with vegetables such as mushrooms. I STRONGLY discourage substituting pomegranate juice for the paste, I can't imagine the flavor coming out properly. But who knows, it may work- so let me know if it does come out :) Pomegranate paste/molasses can be found at many ethnic groceries, and most Middle Eastern stores. My favorite brand is Cortas.

    Recipe #385599

    This Spanish-Mediterranean vegetable salad is healthy, light, and great for the summer months.

    Recipe #322042

    Empanadas are very popular as a street food in South America. Essentially, it is a crescent-shaped pastry with a filling, which may vary greatly by region or preference. Empanadas can be fried or baked, and may use a variety of fillings from meat or seafood to fruit or cheese. While this recipe uses the filling most popular in Buenos Aires, you can fill an empanada with virtually anything you please, so experiment! Tip: A recipe for empanada dough is given here, but they can be found in the frozen pastry section of many specialty or Hispanic groceries. If you are in a rush or just feeling lazy, frozen puff pastry can serve as an adequate substitute. Note: To the reviewer who said the flavor did not seem authentic, you probably haven't had meat empanadas from Argentina then! I am Argentine, and the ground beef empanadas you find there *always* have cumin. Other cultures may have different fillings.

    Recipe #316614

    This is a Middle Eastern dip made of eggplants and tahini. Roasting the eggplants under a broiler or in the oven gives it a nice smokey flavor.

    Recipe #317311

    This is my favorite recipe for baklava- a decadent Mediterannean/Middle Eastern dessert, made of paper-thin filo dough, nuts, and a honey syrup.

    Recipe #317223

    This simple salad is very refreshing and wonderful addition to a summer meal. You can easily add cubed or sliced fresh mozzarella cheese to make it more substantial.

    Recipe #317625

    Nan-e Barbari is a popular Persian flatbread. It is often eaten with salty soft cheese such as feta with herbs (sabzi) or jam and a cup of tea for breakfast. It is similar to Armenian matnakash bread. I made this once for my Iranian boyfriend's parents and they approved :)

    Recipe #453533

    This was the first time I ever made custard-based ice cream, and it was delicious! The rose water and saffron go great together, without overpowering each other. I doubled the original recipe, since most ice cream machines need at least 4 cups of liquid (also because my family gobbled it up in no time!).

    Recipe #318129

    A less fussy way to eat sushi ingredients! I eyeballed quantities when I came up with this, so the measurements aren't precise-- adjust any ingredients to taste. You could probably make a more filling meal out of this by adding in some cooked chilled brown or white rice, or adding more vegetables. And I chose to coat the fish with panko bread crumbs but I'm sure it would work just fine with seared fish or sashimi. Enjoy!

    Recipe #452496

    This vegetarian Georgian soup is flavored with onions, dill, parsley and lemon juice, and infused with cilantro (fresh coriander). It is light and nice to serve in the summer months.

    Recipe #317631

    This cinnamon roll-flavored cake is pretty easy+fast to whip together and smells (and tastes) fantastic! This was one of my first attempts making (any) frosted cake from scratch and it turned out great. After making cinnamon rolls/challah/cookies for my boyfriend (who has an unnatural affinity for the spice!), I thought, "why not cake?" Note: feel free to play around with the cinnamon/extract quantities-- I think I actually ended up putting a lot more than what I listed in the recipe, so adjust to taste. I included cinnamon extract as well as the spice, since it is stronger. I added a tiny bit of food coloring to it as well, to make it a very light brown/peach color.

    Recipe #448984

    This light and refreshing recipe comes together in under 5 minutes and is great during the summer months! I used it as an accompaniment for kotlet (Persian meat-potato patties), although it also goes great as a veggie dip, alternative to tartar sauce, or off the spoon! NOTE: I eyeballed the quantities when I came up with the recipe, so amounts may need to be adjusted a bit to taste.

    Recipe #480383

    I LOVE this face mask! It is only 2 ingredients, but makes makes my pores look nonexistent, helps get rid of pimples (I almost never break out now), moisturizes and makes your face VERY smooth. Enjoy!

    Recipe #453525

    This is an incredibly simple marinade, but delicious! My dad got it from a Polynesian friend at work- It goes great with tofu, chicken, or any other meat, and is very easy to remember and double.

    Recipe #317225

    Georgian cuisine frequently uses walnuts, as in this unique egg salad. A small amount of hot pepper flakes are included in the recipe, but the amount can be increased according to tolerance (make sure not to overpower the flavor of the sauce!). Recipe adapted from "Sephardic Cooking" by Copeland Marks. NOTE: I haven't tested this recipe yet, but you may want to try blending in the egg yolks along with the walnut sauce, and serve it like devilled eggs.

    Recipe #317803

    This Italian and Libyan- influenced dish is great to serve in the summer months.

    Recipe #317633

    This sweet-sour stew is enjoyed by many Sephardic families during the Passover seder and other festive events. It has a longer cooking time, but requires very minimal work on your part and tastes even better the next day! Note: Meat+ fruit combinations are fairly common in Middle Eastern cuisine, but can take getting used to if you have not tried it before. If the stew is too sweet for your taste, just add more sliced lemon or lemon juice. Also, do not brown the chicken before adding the water- the pieces will retain their shape instead of falling apart to create a stew.

    Recipe #423518

    Also known as "Skordozoumi", this Sephardic soup is thickened with eggs, yogurt and feta cheese. Adapted from "Sephardic Flavors" by Joyce Goldstein.

    Recipe #386741

    Popular in Jewish communities throughout the Mediterranean and Middle East, these beautifully marbled rich maroon or brown eggs get their soft texture from the slow cooking process. The addition of onion skins to the liquid are absorbed by the porous shells, which cause the coloration. Huevos Haminados are traditionally served at the Passover Seders of Calcutta, Turkey, Greece, Morocco and Tunisia and others, with slight regional variations. They can also be slowly cooked overnight in a crockpot for Shabbat. The name reflects the eggs' origin in Medieval Spain.

    Recipe #317802

    I found this recipe in an Italian cookbook that my dad got a long time ago. It is delicious and looks like a lot of work, but is very easy to make! If you find the sauce too acidic or want it to be thicker, add some corn starch dissolved in water at towards the end and cook for a few minutes longer. If you have any leftovers, it tastes even better the next day. Preparation time does not include time to marinate.
