Chicken Shawarma Salad

Amy No Comments

One of my all-time favorite meals is a Mediterranean spread--a table full of hummus, baba ghanoush, tzatziki, tabbouleh, tahini sauce, the works! But even better than that is all of those luscious condiments atop a succulent shawarma. And it goes to the next level when I can enjoy all of that without the bread. Since most of us don't have a giant spit to roast meat in our kitchen, sometimes you gotta improvise. You may have tried my BBQ chicken shawarma. But here's one you can make indoors year-round, Read more [...]

Roasted Cauliflower & Beet Salad

Amy No Comments

Whether it's Spring or Fall in your part of the world, and just warming up or just cooling down, a great way to add depth, character, and a bit of warmth to your salads is with warm spices and roasted veggies. I just never get tired of fresh vibrant Mediterranean flavors in any season. Roasted cauliflower and beets bring beautiful color, while warm spices of cumin, turmeric, and cinnamon contrast brilliantly with creamy salty Feta cheese, fresh cilantro, lime juice, and slightly sweet and tangy Pomegranate Read more [...]

I've really been craving some flavorful fresh Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine, and it was about time I'd made these divine Lemon Cardamom Moroccan Meatballs.  I simply swapped out the breadcrumbs from the original recipe for some LSA mix that's hugely popular with the health foodies here in Australia. It's a mix of ground Linseed, Sunflower Seeds, and Almonds. It's loaded with nutrients and makes a great binder in cooking, or substitute for flours in baked goods. And for all those back home in Read more [...]

Celery sticks are my favorite vessel for this creamy flavorful Paleo hummus

Paleo Hummus

Amy No Comments

I've always really enjoyed hummus, but mostly gave it and the rest of legumes up when I went Paleo a couple years ago. But there was no way I was going to miss out on the creamy smooth authentic hummus in Israel, along with all of the other scintillating Middle Eastern food. During my ten glorious days in the Holy Land, I devoured my share of falafel, shawarma, Israeli salad, Yemenite food, olives, pickled veggies and so much more! In fact, I've been dreaming about the tender melt-in-your mouth Read more [...]
